*Ugh* Paul Ryan Defends Rod Rosenstein – House Will Not Vote on Rosenstein Impeachment Today (VIDEO)

Speaker Paul Ryan held a press conference Thursday and said he does not support the impeachment of DAG Rod Rosenstein.

Paul Ryan said he supports oversight of the Executive branch but refuses to actually do something about Rosenstein’s continued stonewalling and intimidation tactics.

“Do I support impeachment of Rod Rosenstein? No I do not,” Paul Ryan said to a reporter.

The House will not vote on Rosenstein impeachment today.

A group of 11 House Republicans led by Rep. Mark Meadows filed articles of impeachment against DAG Rosenstein on Wednesday.

The impeachment articles accuse Rosenstein of withholding pertinent documents from Congressional oversight.

The plan is to continue to apply pressure to produce DOJ docs but keep impeachment/contempt on the table, reports Chad Pergram. 

The House leaves for a one month break starting Thursday so the vote to impeach Rosenstein would have to resume in the Fall.

Paul Ryan is not seeking re-election in November so hopefully the next Speaker of the House will be a Trump supporter.
