GOP lawmaker just said “Robert Mueller to be fired”
GOP Representative Matt Gaetz called for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to resign or be fired over his conflict of interest. He said “We are at risk of a coup d’état in this country if we allow an unaccountable person with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected President of the United States,”
He further added by saying “That is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice.”
He continued by saying “I join … in calling for Mr. Mueller’s resignation or his firing,”
Gaetz, earlier argued that Mueller is compromised because he served as FBI director during the time of President Obama and when the Obama administration signed off on a deal which allowed a Russian company to purchase energy from a Canadian company with Uranium operations in the united States in the year 2010.
Representative Gaetz said in a statement on Friday that “These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised. He must step down immediately,”
According to a report, his resolution has the support of two co sponsors, they are the members of the House Freedom Caucus, Representative Andy Biggs and Louie Gohmert are vehemently supporting Gaetz.
During his speech he also urged the Justice Department to constitute a special counsel to investigate the wrong doings of Clinton Foundation and the Uranium one deal and the Fusion GPS dossier.

Paul Manafort, was chargedwith multiple counts, including conspiracy against the United States and money laundering related to his work for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine. His former business associate, Richard Gates, was also indicted by Mueller ‘
There were reports that Trump’s former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty IN October to lying to FBI agents about his contacts with the Russians.
