Puerto Rico Legislature to begin impeachment process against Gov. Ricardo Rossell
[NBCNEWS] The Puerto Rican Legislature is ready to initiate an impeachment process against embattled Gov. Ricardo Rosselló.

The news on Wednesday came after three attorneys commissioned by the president of Puerto Rico’s House of Representatives, Carlos Méndez Núñez, found five offenses that constitute grounds for impeachment, according to Telemundo and other news outlets.

Rosselló's public affairs secretary, Anthony Maceira, issued a statement reacting to rumors about the governor's possible resignation.

"Rosselló hasn't resigned and is presently in Puerto Rico," the statement read. "We reiterate that any official communication will be shared with the media."

The news follows the island's largest protest in recent history calling for Rosselló's ouster over scandals involving leaked private chats as well as corruption investigations and arrests.
