GOP lawmakers Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Louie Gohmert of Texas, have officially introduced a resolution today that calls for the immediate removal of special counsel Robert Mueller from his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
They are calling on Mueller to recuse himself from his probe because he was FBI director during the investigation of the uranium deal between the Russians and Uranium One, a Canadian energy company, of which a portion of the uranium reserves required US approval. Gaetz’s wants Mueller gone because the FBI did not bring any charges related to the deal, which is totally unrelated to Mueller’s Russia investigation.
“These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised,” Gaetz said in a statement, “He must step down immediately.” You can see excerpts from the resolution below.

These rats are panicking because Mueller is going deep into the illegal activity of the Republican party. Once he charged Manafort and Gates with financial crimes, these crooks realized that Mueller is actively doing one of the things criminals fear most; he’s following the money.
If crooked lobbyist Manafort was laundering millions of dollars in Washington, you can only imagine who else is involved in similar criminal financial activity. It’s also telling that this resolution is being introduced by Republicans. Fortunately this resolution has low chances of going anywhere, but it certainly is evidence of extreme desperation and panic.
