A freshman Republican Congressman on Friday called for special counsel Robert Mueller to recuse himself from any investigation of President Donald Trump.
"Special Counsel Robert Mueller should recuse himself because the integrity of his appointment is in question due to former FBI Director James Comey’s manipulative leaks and the relationship between Mr. Comey and Mr. Mueller," Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) claimed. "Mr. Comey’s actions were rewarded by a media frenzy that backed the Administration into a nightmarish corner, leading to the appointment of his close friend, Mr. Mueller."
Congressman Biggs' statement impugned the honor of federal investigators.
"His ability to be impartial is doubtful because he has surrounded himself with highly partisan lawyers who make a special practice to line the coffers of Democrats," Congressman Biggs suggested. "Since taking on the role, Mr. Mueller has made blatantly partisan hires that put the integrity of the investigation into question."
"The American people deserve to know the full story behind those actions, not a nefarious tall tale to undermine President Trump," Biggs deflected. "The progress of the Trump administration during President Trump's first five months in office have been slowed by unsourced allegations meant to sabotage his administration and derail his agenda to make this country great again."
