Rep. Gohmert: Mueller Should Be Fired, 'Done Enough Damage'

Rep. Gohmert: Mueller Should Be Fired, 'Done Enough Damage'

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, declared FBI special counsel Robert Mueller ought to be fired, lashing out Wednesday at the retired FBI leader as having "done enough damage."

During the monthly "Conversation with Conservatives," the Texas Republican said, "I knew the day that Robert Mueller was appointed that he was a problem," The Hill reported.

"I think Mueller should be fired," Gohmert said, a CNN video showed. "He should be. He should never have been appointed, and he should never have accepted. He should be fired."

The lawmaker added the "only reason . . . in actuality" not to fire Mueller is "some establishment Republicans" have said such an action could result in President Donald Trump's impeachment.

"Even one senator saying that may be an impeachable offense," he said, apparently referring to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

"No, it's not," Gohmert said.

"But because we have so many people that have not bothered to do their homework on who Robert Mueller is and the damage he's done, especially to the FBI as director, the thousands of years of experience he ran off that might [or] could have helped guide some of these wayward FBI agents away from the path they took.

"But he's done enough damage, he needs to go."

Mueller retired as FBI director in 2013 after 12 years leading the bureau.
