‘Anal Opening!’: GOP Lawmaker Goes Berserk On Robert Mueller Ahead Of Public Testimony
Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert (Texas) called former special counsel Robert Mueller an “anal opening” ahead of the former FBI chief’s public testimony before Congress, Politico reports.
“He’s done some irreparable damage to some things and he’s got to answer for them,” Gohmert told Politico. He is one of 25 Republicans on the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees who get to grill Mueller during the back-to-back hearings scheduled later this month.
The Texas lawmaker added that his reading of the former special counsel’s report did little to temper his animosity toward Mueller: “It reinforced the anal opening that I believe Mueller to be.”
Lawmakers from both parties will have the opportunity to question Mueller for hours during back-to-back House hearings on July 17 about the findings of his 22-month investigation into Russia’s election interference in 2016 and potential obstruction of justice by President Trump.
The report did not find enough evidence to charge Trump campaign members or associates with conspiring with the Kremlin to meddle in the election.
Mueller decided not to indict the Trump on obstructed justice charges, saying he was precluded from doing so by a Justice Department opinion that says a sitting president cannot be indicted.
Attorney General William Barr ultimately determined the evidence in Mueller’s report to be insufficient to accuse Trump of criminal wrongdoing.
