Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will appear before lawmakers to answer questions about possible anti-Trump rhetoric.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein pauses while speaking at the federal inspector general community's 21st annual awards ceremony, Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018, in Washington.
Judiciary Chairman Robert W. Goodlatte and Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy announced later Wednesday that Rosenstein will sit for a transcribed interview that they will conduct with Judiciary ranking members Jerold Nadler and Oversight ranking member Elijah E. Cummings.
Jordan said Rosenstein was "obligated" to testify to Congress under oath.
"So with that, I think that it's time that Rod Rosenstein steps down", he added. Lawmakers said Baker did not back away from those claims when he gave a closed-door deposition to the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday. But to date, House GOP leaders have not gone as far as Meadows, Gaetz and other Trump allies, who have called for declassification of records related to the probe, and for Rosenstein's head - most recently with an unsuccessful attempt to push for his impeachment over the summer.

Bloomberg reported this morning that Mueller is ready to "issue findings on core aspects of his Russian Federation probe soon after the November midterm elections". And Rosenstein has wide discretion on what he releases to Congress, and whether he releases any of it publicly. In recent months, however, GOP leaders noted their satisfaction with Rosenstein's efforts - while Trump's allies in Congress continued to voice their criticism of him.
"At this point, we've made multiple requests, he's not shown up".
The report said he also discussed invoking constitutional provisions to remove Trump from office.
Rosenstein, for his part, denied the Times report, saying: "I never pursued or authorized recording the President and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the President is absolutely false". Trump said that the 30-minute meeting was "great".
