During an interview on a Virginia radio show last week, Congressman Louie Gohmert told the two hosts that special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy General Rod Rosenstein “needs to go” before their “coup becomes successful and these yahoos throw us into a civil war.”
The Congressman was discussing the House Judiciary Committee hearing, during which FBI Director Chris Wray defended his agency. Trump claims the FBI is “in tatters.” He blames Robert Mueller’s Russian probe for forcing Trump to stay “embroiled in something that should have gone away a long time ago.”
“Mueller made no bones about it. He wants anti-Trump, Hillary-loving folks on his team. He wants people like [Andrew] Weissmann that said, ‘To heck with the law, to heck with the Constitution.’ This is about screwing people over like he did Anderson, Arthur Anderson that is,” Gohmert said. Weissmann’s work on the Justice Departments Enron probe found Anderson guilty of obstruction of justice, but was later overturned by the Supreme Court. “He didn’t care. He got the desired result and that’s why Mueller hired him. He wanted to hurt people that he wanted to hurt,” Gohmert said.
Gohmert then criticized most of Mueller’s team for meeting with people involved with the Steele dossier.
He said, “See, they knew that. They had to know that, and they still were hired. So it’s not about we’re finding out about their bias and that’s why they’ve got to go. It’s that their bias became public and that became a problem.”
“Mueller stacked the deck. It was intentional in order to cover for him and Rosenstein. Both of them need to go. We’ve got to stop the coup before it becomes successful and these yahoos throw us into a civil war,” Gohmert continued.
So far, Mueller has four indictments in his investigation, two guilty pleas, and is circling Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, and the Trump’s son, Don Jr.
