Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said it’s time for Robert Mueller to hit the road, despite calls from senators to shield the special counsel from President Donald Trump.

“The reason they’re doing it [protecting Mueller] is number one, they are never Trumpers,” Gohmert said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “They want Trump out at all costs, even if it helps these guys that are doing a rotten job.”

Gohmert also called out former FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for their role in the Uranium One scandal and said it’s time to clean house.

“Actually Mueller, Comey, well, Mueller and Rosenstein, Weissmann. They all participated in the Russian uranium investigation. They killed the investigation, quieted it so that Russia could get the sale of our uranium,” Gohmert added. “And then Hillary gets 145 million for her foundation. I mean, if they don’t put the kibosh on that investigation, then that sale doesn’t go through.”

“[Mueller] absolutely does [have to go],” he concluded. “Rosenstein too. Big time.”
