Cathy clarifies
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers clarified her position about the Russian investigation, saying she supports it, but that she wouldn't rule out impeaching Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Earlier, news broke that she and Congressman Devin Nunes discussed impeaching Rosenstein at a fundraising event.

McMorris Rodgers released a statement saying: "...the DOJ and Rod Rosenstein need to make a better effort to turn over the documents that Congress has requested — I expect them to do so and fully comply with appropriate congressional oversight. If they don’t, then Congress should follow regular order to determine if impeachment is the best path forward to restore the public’s trust in the nation’s top law enforcement agency."
