'You're Filibustering': Tucker Challenges Dem on Mueller Probe Conflicts
Tucker Carlson debated a Democratic congressman on the legitimacy of the Mueller probe in the wake of several apparent conflicts of interest among its prosecutors.
Carlson referenced Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who was demoted after it was discovered he met with the founder of Fusion GPS, the Trump dossier firm.
Carlson also mentioned Andrew Weissmann, who lauded then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to defend President Trump's travel ban.
Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island said Robert Mueller is "respected by everyone" aside from being a lifelong Republican.Article continues below
Cicilline said that if any investigators show signs of partisanship they are subject to removal, prosecution and loss of their law license.
Carlson responded that the probe is the most "politically sensitive in a generation" and that there have been too many conflicts of interest thus far.
When Cicilline reiterated that there are rules to prohibit investigators from straying from their oath, Carlson interjected that he was "filibustering" the debate.
"This is just a hack job, you're not addressing my specific questions," he said. "Two [investigators] have been demoted for partisan activity."
