The investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election — and the mainstream media’s desperate attempts to link it to the White House — has been called the “greatest witch hunt in political history” by President Donald Trump.
Now, as more news trickles out on the incredible anti-Trump bias held by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, critics are calling for the FBI boss to be fired.
Establishment Republicans ratcheted up criticism of sMueller’s probe into Russian meddling Wednesday, questioning whether there was bias on his team of lawyers. The career politicians stopped short of calling for his firing or resignation — and voters aren’t happy.
The criticism directed toward Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a House Judiciary Committee hearing comes after the release of anti-Donald Trump text messages exchanged between two FBI officials later assigned to the Russia probe, some of which outlined their plans to stop Trump’s administration.
While establishment Republicans on Capitol Hill are unlikely to support Mueller’s removal, some appear to be laying the groundwork for suggesting the investigation is unfairly partisan.

House members focused on the hundreds of text messages between an FBI counterintelligence agent and an FBI lawyer. Those messages, which occurred before Mueller was appointed in May to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election, show the officials using words like “idiot” and “loathsome human” to characterize Trump as he was running for president in 2016. One of the officials said in an election night text that the prospect of a Trump victory was “terrifying.”
Republicans also focused on past donations to Democrats made by some members of Mueller’s team.
“How, with a straight face, can you say that this group of Democrat partisans are unbiased and will give President Trump a fair shake?” asked Republican Rep. Steve Chabot of Ohio.
Critics of the probe may win praise from Trump, who has been pressured by some allies to push back. But there is still little appetite on among establishment Republicans to fire Mueller.
