Former White House strategist Steve Bannon wants President Trump to order his Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to hand over documents requested by Congress within 72 hours, or fire him.

Bannon told The Hill that Rosenstein is “clearly obstructing justice” by not turning over the documents.

“If he doesn’t do it in 72 hours, he’s fired. I’d fire him,” he said.

House conservatives last week filed a resolution to impeach Rosenstein, accusing the Justice Department of withholding “embarrassing documents and information” related to the Russia investigation and the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. The efforts quickly fizzled out due to lack of support.

Bannon also called special counsel Robert Mueller “a good man” as the former FBI director helming the Russia investigation faces intensified attacks from the president and his allies.
