Even Republicans Criticize Conservatives’ Hyperbolic Attacks of Trump-Russia Probe

The increasingly vicious attacks against the FBI amid the Trump-Russia investigation have gotten so hyperbolic and over the top that even Republicans are calling on members of their party to tone down the rhetoric.

Saying it would be a mistake to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, said “The best thing that can happen for everyone, the president included, is that Mueller be allowed to complete his work.”

Richard Painter, the former chief ethics lawyer who served under George W. Bush, continued to blast Republican Congressman Francis Rooney for suggesting a “purge” at the FBI to end political bias.

In a CNN interview Wednesday, Painter said of Rooney, “Tell that congressman and all the rest of them who are shooting their mouths off without any knowledge of the facts that they are just flat-out wrong.”

Painter added: “That doesn’t appeal to my type of Republican. That doesn’t appeal to patriotic Americans, to see the FBI attacked that way.”

Painter bluntly said of those attacking the FBI, “They’re actin like dictators.”

Nevertheless, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., added to the chorus of criticism of the FBI, calling the investigation a “witch hunt,” the same phrase used by President Trump.

“Mueller has demonstrated he is incapable of leading a focused, unbiased review of his initial assignment,” Biggs wrote in the USA Today. “His witch hunt must end.”
