Florida Congressman Francis Rooney is calling for a purge of the FBI amid accusations of partisanship.
During an interview, Rooney claimed the American people are losing faith and trust in the country’s government agencies.
He believes there are “deep state” figures at work within the bureau.
Rooney said he doesn’t discredit the Special Counsel, but does believe Robert Mueller should reassign agents on his team with known bias against the president.
This comes after one of Mueller’s top investigators — Peter Stzrok — was reassigned for sending anti-Trump text messages, and another member was caught sending an anti-Trump email.
Congress also found 90 percent of those on Mueller’s team made political donations to Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama.
Meanwhile, a Texas representative says Special Counsel Mueller is trying to become a “hero” to the left.
Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert made the remarks during an interview Tuesday.
He said the Special Counsel had become a “hero” to liberals through his probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, adding Mueller was bad news since day one.
The lawmaker went on to say the Special Counsel is determined to take down as many Trump staffers as he can get in his probe.
