Congressman Louie Gohmert soberly warns President Donald Trump to investigate the investigator.
The Texas representative interrupted “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy, who was ending his interview with Gohmert Monday morning, and said he wants to see the president appoint a new special counsel to investigate special counsel Robert Mueller, and his relationship with former FBI Director James Comey.
“Comey, as we’ve now found out he lied more than we even thought, we know that Mueller was his confidant,” he said. “By law Mueller is disqualified from investigating Comey.”
Gohmert also wants the proposed new special counsel to investigate former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton.
“Jeff Sessions recused himself from anything touching Russia. Well, the Clintons touched Russia. Only the president is going to be able to make that appointment. He’s got to do that,” he said.
Gohmert said it would have been better if President Trump had fired Mueller, but charged that Mueller got in front of that by leaking information about the investigation to secure his job.
“The very day that Comey testified that there is no collusion between Trump and the Russians, that was the day that Mueller realized ‘Oh my gosh I don’t have a basis for being here,'” Gohmert said.
“He leaked out that very day ‘I’m now investigating Trump for obstruction just so that Trump couldn’t fire him and he could keep his job,” he said.
It was the second controversial statement Gohmert made on Monday.
Right before he called for another special counsel, Gohmert said that Arizona voters ought to recall Sen. John McCain.
