The Russia probe has a lot of Republicans upset following the leak of anti-Trump texts from FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, according to the Independent Journal Review’s Justen Charters report on Friday.
Strzok, who used profanity and vulgar in his emails and conversations regarding President Donald Trump, was removed from the Russia-Trump Collusion investigation in July. Still, some in the GOP feel that Robert Mueller was wreckless and partisan in choosing FBI employees to investigate Trump and his administration.
With the controversy surrounding Strozk, there were calls for Mueller to step down.
“All of this reinforces our doubts about Mr. Mueller’s ability to conduct a fair and credible probe of the FBI’s considerable part in the Russia-Trump drama. Mr. Mueller ran the bureau for 12 years and is fast friends with Mr. Comey, whose firing by Mr. Trump triggered his appointment as special counsel. The reluctance to cooperate with a congressional inquiry compounds doubts related to this clear conflict of interest.” – The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board
Former President Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder broke his silence about the situation with Mueller on Twitter:
Weren’t you the only Attorney General in U.S. history to be held in contempt of congress?? And you don’t speak for me or the vast majority of the American people you POS!!
