Republican Gets in the Face of Robert Mueller

Recently on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) voiced his opinion on the special counsel probe which has been investigating in Russian interference.

Gaetz told Robert Mueller to “put up or shut up.”

He also said, “Look, the timeline is what it is, right?” Gaetz explained. “And the fact that Mueller after getting rejected for getting his own job back and picks Andrew Weissmann to be his number two and — look, you’re telling me Bob Mueller couldn’t pick somebody to be his number two that didn’t attend the Hillary Clinton election party? The same Andrew Weissmann who wrote Sally Yates an email praising her for directly defying an order from the president of the United States? Conflicts of interests abound.”

“This isn’t an opinion,” he added. “It’s action, Chris. You’ve got Weissmann sending an email on his DoJ account praising somebody for defying the president. That is not an opinion. That is an action — on government time, on government email. When [Peter] Strzok says I’m going to be the insurance policy, when he talks about his girlfriend, Lisa Page, throwing out a plan in Andy McCabe’s office to undermine Donald Trump. These are actions that people are taking to undermine the duly elected president and to undermine the democracy in our country. And the elected representatives of the people, the Congress, have an obligation to expose this bias, to expose what I believe is a corrupt investigation. And I call on my Republican colleagues to join me in calling for the firing Bob Mueller. And look, it’s time for Mueller to put up or shut up. If there’s evidence of collusion with Russia, let’s see it.”
