Rep. Biggs Calls for 'Boundaries' to Be Placed on Mueller Probe
Rep. Andy Biggs called for "boundaries” on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe after FBI Director Christopher Wray said in an interview that President Trump hadn’t ever asked him to do anything about the investigation.
“In my opinion, President Trump has been exonerated from everybody like [former FBI Director James] Comey, like [former National Intelligence Director James] Clapper, the House Intelligence Committee,” Biggs said. “So there’s no collusion there. There’s no point for this investigation.”
Biggs (R-Ariz.) said on “Outnumbered Overtime” that he believes Mueller and his team are working to delegitimize the president, and that it's currently what's driving the Russia probe.
Biggs also said he does not support the special counsel continuing in his role and finishing the investigation, telling Harris Faulkner that he “has been calling for his recusal since last June.”
“The very fact that the team he put together is so biased and has so many conflicts indicated to me back then that this investigation would not be an objective investigation. … We’d all be better-served if he was gone,” he said.
