Crawford for Congress statement on potential Fortenberry support for termination of Robert Mueller

Rep. Jeff Fortenberry expressed concern about the alleged bias of some of Robert Mueller’s employees. What he failed to mention is that some of those same employees were also critical of prominent Democrats. Robert Mueller is a decorated Vietnam War veteran and a lifelong Republican. Moreover, Mueller was appointed FBI Director by a Republican President & special counsel by a Republican Deputy Attorney General. In the not too distant past, Republican members of Congress praised Mueller’s appointment. Now that Mueller appears to be making progress in his investigation, those same Republicans are now demonizing him. If Fortenberry supports the termination of Mueller, he would be complicit in a Trump Administration cover up. As a member of Congress, I would support legislation protecting Mueller from termination by the Administration. If Trump fires Mueller and/or pardons members of his family and inner circle, I would support impeachment on the grounds of obstruction of justice.
