Rep. Louie Gohmert: "Mueller should be fired."— Ben Siegel (@benyc) March 21, 2018
He says the only reason it hasn't happened is because some Republicans have said it's an impeachable offense.
"It's not," Gohmert says.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller should be fired from his position investigating Russia's election meddling and the Trump campaign.
“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.
