Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, renewed his call Wednesday for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appear on Capitol Hill to testify about his reported effort to undermine President Donald Trump, The Hill reports.
"The American people have a right to know if the Deputy Attorney General plotted to wear a wire to secretly record the president with the goal of removing him from office," Jordan wrote, referring to a report in The New York Times which said Rosenstein discussed wearing a "wire" to secretly record conversations with Trump in the Oval Office last year and discussed the possibility of Cabinet officials invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president.
The ranking Republican member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee made his comments following reports Rosenstein will resign in the coming weeks.
"This is a serious matter and one Mr. Rosenstein must account for under oath," Jordan added. "Rod Rosenstein's expected departure from his post in no way absolves him of his responsibility to answer questions before Congress. I hope and expect Chairman Cummings will expeditiously seek Mr. Rosenstein's prompt appearance before Congress.
