Rep. Mike Rogers: IG report proves Mueller probe needs to be shut down

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Folks across East Alabama may have recently seen the Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General (IG) Report findings were released. The IG report details the mishandling of the FBI investigation involving Hillary Clinton and her private email server. Anyone that denies that the FBI’s Clinton investigation was rigged in her favor is delusional.

The political bias clearly shown during the investigation and the double standard of justice was rampant and deliberate. This is the same crooked group at the FBI that started the investigation of President Trump that led to the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

So here is what we know:

Mr. Comey was FBI Director at the time the investigation was started. The IG found his actions at the FBI were insubordinate and he may currently be under investigation for leaking classified material.

Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired and is under investigation for lying to investigators. Special Agent Peter Strzok has clearly demonstrated his hate and contempt for President Trump through his texts.  He most recently was escorted out of the FBI headquarters.

Congressional investigators now believe FBI documents may have been altered to convict Michael Flynn after the two FBI agents that interviewed him found him to be truthful. We are also now finding out about FBI spies being planted inside the Trump campaign along with FBI abuse of the FISA warrants.

Enough is enough.

If all of this pans out, which I believe it will, there was no original basis for appointing Robert Mueller. As I discussed during my Fox Business interview this week, the Mueller witch hunt needs to be shut down immediately. We cannot continue to let it go on and be a distraction for the American people and Trump Administration. Our economy is booming, unemployment rates are low and the American Dream is back – but with this nonsense continuing on the side, it is hard to focus on our goals.

The American people deserve better.
