Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert has developed into such a disappointment.
It’s hard not to wonder the exact level of mania going on in Congress now, regarding the ongoing Russia probe, when you have a sitting congressman taking to live television to ramble and rage in a way that seems as if it came straight from an Alex Jones video.
In a spittle-flecked interview with Fox News, Gohmert attacked special counsel Robert Mueller and the investigation.
“I have known Robert Mueller for 20, 30 years, and he is not going to stop until he gets some kind of indictment against the president,” Gohmert said in an interview with Fox News Wednesday.
Is he suggesting that Mueller will attempt to rig his findings against President Trump? Where is his proof for that? To date, no one has been able to successfully prove any bias on the part of Mueller, or that he was doing anything that wasn’t completely on the level.
He’s a methodical lawman, by most every account, and if someone is worried, you have to assume they have good reason to be.
With that in mind, you also have to wonder why this is so important to Gohmert, to the point that he would openly demean the character of special counsel, and do so with such panicked vigor.
Gohmert then alleged that Mueller deserved to be investigated and that his probe is “of an area he is totally disqualified from,” citing that he FBI director when the agency looked at his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s sale of uranium.
You mean Uranium One?
Of course that’s what he means. It was a legal sale and the histrionics over that deal have been addressed, already.
Gohmert should know this.
He launched this latest attack after news that Trump’s legal team were about to make a counteroffer to Mueller, in regards to setting up an interview between he and the president. Gohmert’s advice is that Trump not sit with Mueller’s team.
“Mueller should be investigated and instead, he is the special counsel. This is a guy that doesn't care. He is hoping he will affect the election and screw over the president,” Gohmert said.
Gohmert also suggested that Mueller would not “mind breaking the law and putting people in jail.”
That’s nothing short of character assassination and it’s completely unfounded.
Gohmert is not a serious representative and these continued emotional outbursts from Trump’s loyalists serves no other purpose than to highlight the desperation within the ranks of the GOP.
Why? What do they know that they would rather not be brought to light?
At this point, the entire GOP is suspect. With the exception of very few, there are none that can be counted on to be arbiters of truth and constitutional purity.
We are in such dire need of a viable third party to rise.
