He 'Destroys People': Gohmert Demands Mueller Resign in Report on Bureaucrat's 'Problematic' Past
Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert called on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to resign and discussed a lengthy report he published on the former FBI director's "problematic" past.
Steve Doocy played video of Gohmert ripping then-Director Mueller during a hearing on the Boston Marathon bombing.
Mueller told Gohmert his "facts are not all together (unintelligible)," prompting the lawmaker to challenge the director to tell him where he was lying.
Gohmert told Doocy Mueller was not being completely forthright in statements about visiting a Massachusetts mosque frequented by the murderous Tsarnaev brothers.
He said that the Trump-Russia probe is the latest example of Mueller intending to carry out personal vendettas.
"He identifies people he doesn't like and destroys them. [He] leaves terrible destruction in his wake," Gohmert said.
Gohmert said Mueller, along with his Russia probe staff attorney Andrew Weissmann and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, participated in the Uranium One investigation.
"They killed the investigation [and] quieted it so that Russia could get the sale of our uranium. Then, Hillary [Clinton] gets $145 million for her foundation," he said.
Robert Mueller has a long and sordid history of illicitly targeting innocent people that is a stain upon the legacy of American jurisprudence.
He lacks the judgment and credibility to lead the prosecution of anyone. I do not make these statements lightly.
Each time I prepared to question Mueller during Congressional hearings, the more concerned I became about his work ethic.
Then as I went back to begin compiling all that information in order to recount personal interactions with Mueller, the more clearly the big picture began to come into focus.
If you want answers, and you can handle the truth, join me in demanding those answers from “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller, along with his resignation.
Gohmert said that the bipartisan selection of lawmakers who have supported or forwarded legislation to protect Mueller in his special counsel role are mostly "Never Trumpers" who seek to unseat the president or sabotage the furtherance of his agenda.
