The lawmakers accused Rosenstein of committing "high crimes and misdemeanors", including the failure to comply with congressional subpoenas, intentionally withholding redacted information and documents Congress members have the constitutional right to see, and abusing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

Democrats have argued the focus on Rosenstein is an attempt to broadly undermine the Mueller investigation. His open threat of triggering a vote on impeachment - which he can do if he follows a certain set of procedural rules - could help him win concessions on other contentious issues before the House.
In the statement Meadows said lawmakers' complaints had been ignored for too long and it was time to remove Rosenstein from the position of deputy attorney general.
