WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform; Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC), Ranking Member of the Government Operations Subcommittee sent a letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) requesting him to immediately call Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Andrew McCabe to publicly testify before the Committee.
Excerpts from the letter:
“The conduct of these officials raises a number of questions about decisions made after FBI Director James Comey was fired by the President. In the eight days after Comey’s firing, Rosenstein conducted a series of meetings to discuss ways of getting the President. McCabe, a participant in some of the Rosenstein meetings, is now relating these facts publicly to promote his book. Rosenstein has disputed McCabe’s account. The Committee should hear from both of them so our Members and the American people can determine what to believe.”
“During our joint investigation with the House Judiciary Committee, former FBI general counsel James Baker testified that between May 9 and May 17, 2017, Rosenstein organized a series of meetings with Department officials, including McCabe, to strategize methods to counter the President. Rosenstein and his cabal postulated a range of ideas – from Rosenstein wearing a wire to secretly record the President to Rosenstein recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
