After a big week, both announcing a candidacy to be the next speaker of the House and presenting articles of impeachment for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, vowed to simplify the role of Congress to do "what they elected us to do."

"We make the job as a member of Congress way too complicated," Jordan told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "It's pretty simple: What did you tell the American people you're going to do . . . what did you say you're going to accomplish? Go do that.

"Frankly, we haven't done enough of that. That's why there is this frustration level. . . . President Trump's doing what he said. We need to do more of that in Congress, and that’s why I want to be speaker."

Jordan has taken his own words to action this week, vowing with fellow Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., to present articles of impeachment for the Justice Department's Rosenstein, who is leading the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The articles were presented and then rescinded this week, but they remain among the "tools the founders gave us when they drafted this amazing document [the Constitution] and started this greatest country in history."

"If they don’t give us information, Mr. Meadows and myself and others are going to force an impeachment vote at some point," Jordan told host John Catsimatidis.

Jordan's candidacy for House speaker goes back to fulfilling promises with action, like GOP campaign promises on tax reform, healthcare reform, and immigration reform, he said.

"I'm going to run for speaker because, if I am fortunate enough to get that position, we're going to do those things – in simple terms – to do what we told the American people we were going to do, what we said we would do, and what they elected us to do," Jordan vowed.
