WATCH Chris Cuomo Dismantle A GOP Trump Defender When He Attacks Bob Mueller

Congressional Republicans who support President Trump are in a panic because they know Special Counsel Robert Mueller is about to drop the hammer on Trump and his cabal of traitors who conspired with Russia during the 2016 election.

One of the most rabid Trump defenders is Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, who appeared on CNN Friday morning. Cuomo immediately asked Gaetz about comments he made Thursday when the House Judiciary Committee questioned Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Specifically, Gaetz remarked:

“It is as if, when Bob Mueller picked his team, he went fishing in the never-Trump aquarium.”

Cuomo told Gaetz:

“Bob Mueller interviews with the president considering a position in the administration. He has been a Republican longer than you have even considered being a Republican. He’s a decorated war veteran who ran the FBI and who everybody in your party said is an excellent choice for the investigation. What has changed?”

Rather than respond, Gaetz resorted to lying:

“You made the point that Mueller was interviewed for his old job back, the FBI director position, and I think that’s key fact. On the 16th of May, the president interviews Mueller and tells him he will not be the next director of the FBI.”

The CNN host set Gaetz straight on the facts:

“That’s not our read on what happened. How do you know that’s what happened in that conversation?”


“Well, look, I mean, you have got a situation where [Rod] Rosenstein walks Mueller out and within 24 hours Rosenstein appoints him to be the head of the probe. If he was being considered for the job back, the job he wanted, he would have gotten it.”

Having had enough of Gaetz’s bullshit, Cuomo shut him down with this:

Hold on a second, don’t overpower me with your, you know, your wisdom of loquacious attacks. If Trump didn’t like Mueller, okay. You are saying you had this meeting, you are not getting the job and you don’t make the grade, and then right after it the guy that he appoints to head up what is happening in the DOJ picks him? The same guy he leaned on for this memo about why Comey had to go? That same guy just stabs him in the back?”

Oh, and here’s another fact about Congressman Gaetz: He’s eager to trash the impeccable reputation of a war hero like Robert Mueller, but Gaetz has some skeletons in his own closet:

Case closed!
