A Republican congressman is demanding the firing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the Russia investigation on Friday.
During an interview with CNN, Cong. Matt Gaetz “Congress has an obligation to expose what I believe is a corrupt investigation. I call on my Republican colleagues to join me in firing Bob Mueller. It’s time for Mueller to put up or shut up. If there’s evidence of collusion with Russia, let’s see it.”
Gaetz also insisted that Mueller’s investigation is biased citing the reason that one of the agents who previously part of his team sent text messages critical of Trump. He appears to be buying Fox New’s weak argument about Mueller’s investigation. Take note that that agent also criticized Sen. Bernie Sanders in his text message.
Who is Gaetz and what kind of person and congressman is he? Gaetz represents the First District of Florida. His father is a wealthy healthcare executive and state senator. Obviously, he is the kind of lawmaker with a lame idea, which was already rejected by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
According to Rosenstein, “I think it would be very difficult… for anybody to find somebody better qualified for this job. Director Mueller has throughout his lifetime been a dedicated and respected and heroic public servant.”
In contrast, Gaetz character is not respectable based on media reports. A previous report from Tampa Bay Times indicated that he was arrested for DUI in 2008.
“It was the night before Halloween in 2008 when Gaetz, then 26, drove back from the Swamp, a nightclub on Okaloosa Island. He drove a 2001 BMW SUV registered to his state senator dad.
Near midnight, Okaloosa County Deputy Chris Anglin clocked Gaetz going 48 in a 35 mph zone. Anglin later reported that Gaetz fumbled for his license and registration, his eyes were watery and bloodshot, and he swayed and staggered when he got out of the car,” according to the report
In 2015, Gaetz introduced a bill in the Florida Legislature to allow citizens to openly carry firearms. He asserted that his proposal restores the right “granted not by government but by God.” Many criticized his proposal “frightening” that will turn Florida into a wild west.
In August 2013, he told the media that he opposes “changing one damn comma” of Florida’s stand-your-ground law, which became a major issue after the death of Trayvon Martin. At the time, he also suggested that two African-American legislators didn’t know how to write or spell.
During his tenure in the Florida Legislature, he introduced (and passed) legislation that imposed $5 million penalty to local government that restricts guns; a bill that banned insurance policies (created through Obamacare) from offering abortion coverage, and a bill that expedited death row cases to speed up executions.
Going back to his DUI violation in 2008, the charges against him was dropped. However he admitted that he made “bad decisions” at the time. Reports prove that he is always making bad decisions—he has been cited multiple times—at least 16 times for different types of driving violations since 1999. Take note 16 citations.
