Congressman Matt Gaetz Introduces Resolution Calling for Recusal of Mueller from Special Counsel
[Gaetz Website] Washington, D.C. ‐ U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL), member of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced a resolution today calling for the resignation of Robert Mueller, former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, from his position as Special Counsel.

"Evidence has emerged that the FBI withheld information from Congress and from the American people about Russian corruption of American uranium companies. A confidential U.S. witness, working in the Russian nuclear industry, revealed that Russia had deeply compromised an American uranium trucking firm through bribery and financial kickbacks.

Although federal agents possessed this information in 2010, the Department of Justice continued investigating this "matter" for over four years. The FBI, led at the time by Robert Mueller, required the confidential witness to sign a non-disclosure agreement. When the witness attempted to contact Congress and federal courts about the bribery and corruption he saw, he was threatened with legal action. By silencing him, Obama’s Justice Department and Mueller’s FBI knowingly kept Congress in the dark about Russia’s significant and illegal involvement with American uranium companies.

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," Rep. Gaetz said in a statement.

Cosponsors of the resolution currently include Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX).

In July 2017, Rep. Gaetz offered an amendment in the House Judiciary Committee, as well as a stand-alone resolution, calling for a special counsel to investigate former FBI Director James Comey’s collusion with Robert Mueller, the FBI’s mishandling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s infamous "tarmac conversation" with former President Bill Clinton.

#1 IMO, the time is overdue for getting rid of this Special Counsel. They have been at the Russian collusion investigation for too long and they have found nothing. Their initial charge has gone far astray. Anything found by the Special Counsel is the fruit from the poisoned tree since the counsel and its mission were based on a lie to begin with.
