Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said on a talk radio show that special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein need to be ousted before their coup is finalized and the country ends up in "civil war".
On Friday, Gohmert joined the program’s co-hosts, Mary Walter and Vince Coglianese, to discuss a House Judiciary Committee hearing at which FBI Director Chris Wray defended his agency after President Trump claimed that the FBI’s reputation was “in tatters.” Gohmert faulted the FBI and the special counsel leading the Russia probe for keeping the Trump administration “embroiled in something that should have gone away a long time ago,” and went on to criticize Mueller and Rosenstein directly.
“Mueller stacked the deck. It was intentional in order to cover for him and Rosenstein. Both of them need to go. We’ve got to stop the coup before it becomes successful and these yahoos throw us into a civil war,” Gohmert said.
