Rep. Biggs: 'The Bias Is So Palpable' In FBI, Mueller Probe
Congressmen Andy Biggs and Matt Gaetz reacted to the hours-long closed-door hearing being attended by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Gaetz (R-Fla.) have called for special counsel Robert Mueller's resignation, claiming his deputies - like McCabe - have shown obvious signs of bias.
"The Peter Strzok scheme [of changing language in the FBI's statement on Hillary Clinton's emails] seems to have been hatched in Andy McCabe's presence," Gaetz said.
Biggs called for a public hearing where Congress can question McCabe in public view.
"The bias is so palpable and so real," he said. "Nobody thinks they're going to get a fair investigation at any level."
McCabe previously drew criticism for his connection to longtime Clinton confidant Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D).
Jill McCabe lost that 2015 race to incumbent Dick Black (R-Loudoun).
