North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows called Thursday for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to resign. Citing “additional information,” Meadows argued that Rosenstein had “shown a lack of candor.”

Based on additional information we’ve learned over the last week, it is clear Rod Rosenstein should resign immediately.

He has not cooperated with Congress, failed to be transparent about his actions, and shown a lack of candor in the way he’s characterized a number of events.

Meadows’ tweet came on the heels of a press gaggle — during which he made a similar statement to reporters — that took place following an interview with former FBI general counsel James Baker.

“I think at this particular point, Rod Rosenstein’s priorities are misplaced,” Meadows told reporters. “His unwillingness to come before Congress and allow us to conduct proper Congressional oversight, along with the other information that we’ve learned over the last week or so, would indicate that Rod Rosenstein has not displayed the candor of which would support one’s theory of actually believing that he has been open and honest in all regards.”
