Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who is the chairman of the House oversight committee, stated concern and skepticism today on appointing former FBI Director Robert Mueller to oversee the investigation of a possible Trump / Russian connection.
He appeared with Tucker Carlson and said Mueller’s credentials were “impeccable”.
“He’s in the latter part of his career. He has nothing to prove. He’s been silent politically,” Chaffetz continued. “It doesn’t get any better than Robert Mueller, if you’re going to do it.”
But Chaffetz questions the nessecarity, stating he had “not seen any evidence of actual collusion” that would require such an appointment.
“Where is the actual crime that they think they need a special prosecutor to prosecute?” Chaffetz asked host Tucker Carlson. “I haven’t seen that.”
