Facing Republican lawmakers’ allegations of impropriety in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein defended the man leading the investigation in a hearing Wednesday.

Republican congressmen repeatedly questioned the integrity of Robert Mueller, the special counsel, alleging his investigation is tainted because prosecutors and agents on his team are biased against President Donald Trump. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused from the investigation, effectively placing Rosenstein in charge of Mueller. Asked by Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, if Rosenstein saw any reason to fire Mueller, he said he’s seen no “good cause” to do so.
