Fiery Rep. Louie Gohmert: Mueller Would 'Love to Get Trump's Scalp'
Congressman Louie Gohmert said he believes special counsel Robert Mueller is "out for a scalp," and that he personally had that premonition when the former FBI director was appointed to the investigation into President Trump.
"I have said since day one, since he was appointed, he's bad news," Gohmert (R-Texas) said. "He's out for a scalp."
Gohmert said Mueller would "love to get Trump's scalp" and become a "hero of the left."
He said Mueller's determination will continue no matter how many associates in his investigation of the president are discredited or demoted.

"If he cannot get the president, he will... take a Mike Flynn," Gohmert said, referring to the retired general who was charged with lying to the FBI.
Gohmert, who was part of the closed-door questioning of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said the number two at the bureau cannot leave fast enough.
"He can't go fast enough," Gohmert said. "Anybody who has that much disrespect for the Republican Party [or] the president of the United States - this goes way beyond just having a political opinion."
McCabe was recently suspected of being the "Andy" mentioned among the thousands of anti-Trump texts sent between FBI Agent Peter Strzok and his Justice Department employee mistress.

His involvement in the investigation was also called into question after it was revealed that his wife accepted several thousand dollars in campaign contributions from Virginia Gov. Terence McAuliffe (D), a Clinton confidant.
