DesJarlais’ move to impeach Rosenstein done in bad faith

Tennesseans in TN-04 deserve a representative who prioritizes fighting for them

July 26, 2018 (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) – In response to 11 Freedom Caucus House Republicans, including Rep. DesJarlais, moving to file articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Tennessee Democratic Party Chair Mary Mancini issued the following statement:

“Signing on to articles of impeachment to remove Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is a petty attack on our justice system and shows that Rep. Scott DesJarlais continues to prioritize Party over Country,” Mancini said. “The residents of Tennessee’s fourth congressional district want a representative who will fight for them — not one who spends their time disingenuously attacking public servants. Rod Rosenstein oversees Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russia’s attack on our elections, which should continue in its entirety, because the American people deserve to know the truth. It’s clear Rep. DesJarlais would prefer to stand up for the Trump Administration over the interests of the people he’s supposed to serve. Voters have a choice in November, and Election Day can’t come soon enough.”
