Andy Biggs: I Don’t Think Trump Can Get Fair Treatment from Mueller; He Needs to Go

‘We begin to say, we hope that President Trump is getting something and a fair investigation happening, but in reality, that’s not the perception that many of my colleagues and myself see’

RUSH EXCERPT:

REGAN: "President Trump in a “New York Times” interview saying he believes special counsel Robert Mueller is going to be fair in this rush of probe. How is that sitting with my next guest? Congressman Andy BIGS is one of those who thinks Mr. Mueller should resign. Happy new year. Do you think you can get a fair treatment?"
BIGGS: "Number one, I don’t think he can. I’m not sure that he has. I think contextually what President Trump was really saying, he’s not going to fire him. He is going to give him wide berth and basically stay out of it. And hope for the past. I think that was aspirational."
REGAN: "Was like a down payment. Aspirational is a great way to put it. I’m hoping for the best here. I hope he is as fair as possible. You say he hasn’t been fair thus far."
BIGGS: "I has a per se that’s the case. I go back to the way he was appointed as special counsel. The team he’s put together, the latest thing is the way he’s accumulated those 10,000 documents from the presidential transition team without due process. To me, that’s the tip of the iceberg. You start adding things like the Peter struct emails. You look at the way he stonewalled Congress and hasn’t give us the information we’ve asked for. We begin to say, we hope that President Trump is getting something and a fair investigation happening, but in reality, that’s not the perception that many of my colleagues and myself see. It is not what my constituency. We think that Mr. Mueller should go."
