Paul Ryan says does not back impeachment of Rosenstein

WASHINGTON - US House speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday said he did not back an effort by some House Republicans to impeach Deputy US Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
"Do I support impeachment of Rod Rosenstein? No, I do not ... for number of reasons," he told reporters. Lawmakers should not be "cavalier" with the impeachment process, he said, adding that he did not think the department's action "rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors."
