Republican Congressman Calls for Resignation of Robert Mueller

An Arizona congressman is calling for the resignation of special counsel Robert Mueller, suggesting he had two conflicts of interest.

U.S. Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., joined President Trump’s claims that Mueller should be disqualified to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election because at least four people on the special counsel’s staff donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

“These obviously deliberate partisan hirings do not help convey impartiality,” Franks told KTAR.

Franks also took aim at Mueller’s longtime relationship with former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired.

“No one knows Mr. Mueller’s true intentions, but neither can anyone dispute that he now clearly appears to be a partisan arbiter of justice,” U.S. Rep. Trent Franks said in a statement. “Accordingly, the law is also explicitly clear: he must step down based on this conflict of interest.”

Trump adviser Newt Gingrich also weighed in.

“Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. Look who he is hiring,” Gingrich tweeted.
