‘We are at risk of a coup’: GOP Congressman demands Mueller resign — and the DOJ investigate Clinton

Published

on

The congressman representing the most Republican district in Florida escalated his attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller, who’s heading an investigation into Russian interference and collusion with Trump campaign.

Freshman Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) took to a nearly-deserted house floor Wednesday to demand Mueller end his investigations into conduct by President Donald Trump’s administration and 2016 campaign.

“We are at risk of a coup d’état in this country if we allow an unaccountable person with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected President of the United States,” Gaetz said. “And I would offer, that is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice.”

“I join my colleague, the gentleman from Arizona, in calling for Mr. Mueller’s resignation or his firing,” Gaetz continued.

“Moreover, we absolutely have to see the Department of Justice appoint a special counsel to look into the Clinton Foundation, the Uranium One deal and the FusionGPS dossier,” Gaetz suggested.

Rep. Gaetz, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) called on special counsel Mueller to resign after the indictments of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, his deputy Rick Gates and the conviction of campaign and transition staffer George Papadopoulos.

You don’t have to be a psychiatrist to realize the following: First, Trump has an obsessive desire to claim himself a success story. Second, despite his massive narcissism, he is painfully aware that he is an unmitigated failure. That is what explains his irrepressible desire to aggrandize himself.

2020 Election

Democrats are on the verge of setting a ‘time bomb’ for any candidate who can defeat Trump

Published

on

If a new president takes over the White House in January 2021, he or she may quickly find that the Democratic Party that just won control of the executive branch left a loaded gun in the hands of the Republicans, who are all too eager to use it.

That should be the takeaway from reports about the budget negotiations between the House Democrats and the Trump administration. According to Bloomberg reporter Sahil Kapur, the parties are coalescing around an agreement to raise spending by $350 billion, offset that increase somewhat with about $75 billion, and extend the debt ceiling — now set to expire in the fall — to July 31, 2021.
