Rep Louie Gohmert (R-TX) echoed President Trump Wednesday by saying Mueller should never have been appointed in the first place then called for his firing.
Gohmert also accused Mueller of using the office of special counsel to ‘cover his rear’ for the problems he created in allowing U.S. Uranium to be sold to Russia.
The calls for Mueller’s firing are growing and President Trump is ratcheting up his attacks on the Special Counsel. Something is shifting and Trump’s base is galvanized.
It’s time for this unconstitutional witch hunt to be shut down.
The Hill reported:
“I think Mueller should be fired,” Gohmert said during the monthly “Conversation with Conservatives” meeting on Wednesday. “He should never have been appointed and he should never have accepted. He should be fired.”
Gohmert clarified that he thinks the president should not actually fire Mueller, because Republicans in Congress might impeach him if he did so.
“The only reason that he is not going and the president is not going to fire him and that I am not calling for him to be fired now is … because of all the establishment Republicans that think they would have to come after Trump if he were fired.”
Gohmert accused Mueller of being more interested in pursuing crimes that are in the “parameters” of what he is supposed to pursue.
“Anything beyond Russian collusion are things that could be investigated, should be investigated, by the current DOJ, the current FBI, and not a special counsel that is covering his own rear and his own problems that he created in allowing U.S. uranium to be sold,” Gohmert said about Mueller.
Mueller’s mandate from the Justice Department allows him to bring charges for any crimes he discovers during his investigation.
“I knew the day that Robert Mueller was appointed that he was a problem,” Gohmert said.
As reported earlier, prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial deal in 2010 giving Russia 20% of America’s Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin, says a report by The Hill.
