Pam Bondi on Mueller Probe: 'Wipe Out This Team and Start Over'
Florida’s attorney general, Pam Bondi, said on "Your World" that President Donald Trump has very good reason to doubt the fairness and impartiality of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.
Bondi noted that FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok was removed from Mueller's team after it was discovered that he’d exchanged anti-Trump, pro-Hillary Clinton text messages with a fellow agent.
She said the texts are "horrific," and she noted that one seemed to reference FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.
Bondi, a Republican, added that multiple members of Mueller's team have donated thousands of dollars to Democrats, and said that Mueller has surrounded himself with too many people who are biased against the president.
"I don't know how this wasn't vetted to begin with," Bondi said. "I think we need to scratch everybody and start with a brand-new team and just finish this. It's ridiculous."
She said it's important to have "honest and ethical prosecutors" who can put their political views aside.
"These are people directly assigned to investigate our president who have called him a 'menace,' who say that they think they have an 'insurance policy' against him," Bondi said. "This is more than someone who's a registered Democrat or a registered Republican. These people have formed a bias."
She called on Mueller to "wipe out this team and start over."
