The swamp gases in Washington are getting to some people’s heads. Either that or there’s a lot of members of the House of Representatives not exactly connecting the dots in their impatience to see Robert Mueller’s time as Special Prosecutor end. See, on Wednesday, three Republicans, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Andy Biggs (D-AZ), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), filed a measure to have Mueller removed from the Russia investigation. Gaetz later followed up that assertion in an interview with SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday.
“We’re at a real risk, Andrew, of a coup d’etat in this country if we allow an unaccountable special prosecutor with clear conflicts of interest to spend more than a year undermining the duly elected President of the United States. It’s ludicrous,” Gaetz replied.
“That’s one of the reasons I have called for Mueller to be removed as the special counsel,” he continued. “As early as 2009, we knew that Russia was using bribery and extortion to undermine our uranium assets. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that just about that time, you’ve got hundreds of thousands of dollars going to Bill Clinton, and you’ve got Hillary Clinton at the State Department not saying peep as we put our national security at risk.”
“If Bob Mueller was really doing his job over there at the FBI, we would have had this information before the Congress and the American people, and we would not have given Russia this foothold in our uranium profile here in the United States,” he charged. “I think Mueller has got to go.”
“We’ve also called on a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal and the Fusion GPS dossier,” Gaetz added. “It’s important for the American people to know the current folks over at the Justice Department cannot possibly investigate Fusion GPS and Uranium One, these two massive scandals of Russians working with the Democrats, because too many people over there at the FBI may be involved – may be, either through their acts or through their omissions, culpable for some of this conduct. That’s why we need a special prosecutor to investigate the real crimes from the real criminals. It all is going to lead back to the Clinton Foundation.”
First off, there is no real evidence that President Trump is being undermined in any way by Mueller’s probe other than public perception delivered by the Mainstream Media. Secondly, yes, American uranium assets being spirited away by foreign interests and the exploration rights sold out from under American property owners has been known to those who pay attention to such things for quite a while. And, yes, Mueller was head of the FBI at the time. That doesn’t mean he had to like what was happening or that he went along with it willingly. Remember, there is such a thing in American politics as Arkancide.

We the People do not know what was said between him and the President the day before he was appointed special prosecutor when Robert Mueller supposedly interviewed for a job for which he is ineligable. Somehow, in the course of investigating Russian “collusion” (which is not illegal) with the goal of finding someone, anyone guilty of the non-crime, Mueller just happened to “stumble upon” some of the records of regarding all that uranium being spirited out of the country, and there just happen to be people being indicted for crimes uncovered before the 2016 presidential campaign. Why, exactly, is this a problem? Especially if Mueller is doing the sort of investigating Gaetz and his cohorts are demanding without anyone knowing about it.
Seriously, these guys need to get a grip. When it comes to Donald Trump and the way he has conducted his campaign and his presidency, nothing is as it seems until he speaks of it. We have no idea what or who has been caught in the scope of this investigation. The gentlemen of the House would do well to shelve their gripes, and get some snacks instead. There’s a bunch of sealed indictments in the D.C. courts from the Feds. Christmas just might come early with no additional, expensive investigations.
