GOP Rep. Gohmert: Mueller ‘Would Love to Get Trump’s Scalp’

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) had strong words for special counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday’s edition of Fox & Friends, saying Mueller would “love to get Trump’s scalp.”

“I have said since day one since he was appointed, he’s bad news. He’s out for a scalp. He would love to get Trump’s scalp. He would love to be the hero of the left to take out Donald Trump. He will do everything he can to do that,” Gohmert said.

Gohmert took things a step further and accused Mueller of not being the “upstanding, fair guy that people have painted him as being.”

“He did more destruction to the FBI, weakened the FBI more so than J. Edgar Hoover or anybody ever did,” the GOP Congressman claimed. “He purged the training records of anything that offended radical Islamists. He weakened us of our ability to see, for example, the Boston bomber––they went out to talk to him, because of Mueller they didn’t know what to ask. He persistently shows disdain toward people who are very conservative. He’s a problem.”

Gohmert also swiped at FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

“He can’t go fast enough. Anybody who has that much disrespect for the Republican Party or the president of the United States, this goes way beyond just having a political opinion,” Gohmert said.

The Texas Republican concluded by calling for another special counsel to “investigate Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Lynch, the Clinton fiasco.”
