Congressman Biggs Renews Call for Robert Mueller to Resign

March 19, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Biggs renewed his call for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to resign:

"Our citizens rightfully demand that our government officials be held to the highest levels of honesty, integrity, and accountability. And yet, each week, we hear of another Department of Justice bureaucrat being reassigned or relieved of their duties after finding they were unable to carry out their duties in an unbiased and professional manner. Just last week, Attorney General Sessions, following recommendations from the FBI's disciplinary office, fired former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe after learning that he authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a reporter and misled investigators when asked about it.

"President Trump continues to be undermined by the Department of Justice and our own law enforcement agencies at the highest levels. Many of these officials are facing disciplinary action. I have repeatedly urged that Special Counsel Robert Mueller be given the same scrutiny - as his investigation has been tainted since its inception. First, his appointment occurred because of a disgruntled former FBI Director, who potentially engaged in criminal activity by leaking government memos to influence an ongoing investigation. Mr. Mueller then proceeded to surround himself by partisan prosecutors and has demonstrated a propensity to stray from the constrains of his original charge. Mr. Mueller is wasting taxpayer dollars in an attempt to find evidence that meets his predetermined conclusion. This must stop, and I renew my call for Special Counsel Mueller to resign."

On June 23, 2017, Congressman Biggs became one of the first Members of Congress to call for Robert Mueller's recusal.
