‘We’re In Dangerous Water Right Now’: GOP Rep. Reveals McCabe Testimony Contained Conflicts With Mueller’s Recollection (VIDEO)
Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) joined Fox News Tuesday, revealing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s two recent testimonies before House members on anti-Trump bias at the bureau, contained conflicts with the way special counsel Robert Mueller ‘remembered things.’ Gohmert did not elaborate on what those discrepancies are.
Gohmert then lamented Mueller’s mission to take out President Trump or advisors in his inner circle.
“We’re in some dangerous waters,” Gohmert warned.

FOX News Insider reports:
Congressman Louie Gohmert said he believes special counsel Robert Mueller is “out for a scalp,” and that he personally had that premonition when the former FBI director was appointed to the investigation into President Trump.
“I have said since day one, since he was appointed, he’s bad news,” Gohmert (R-Texas) said. “He’s out for a scalp.”
Gohmert said Mueller would “love to get Trump’s scalp” and become a “hero of the left.”
He said Mueller’s determination will continue no matter how many associates in his investigation of the president are discredited or demoted.
“He can’t go fast enough,” Gohmert said of McCabe.
“Anybody who has that much disrespect for the Republican Party [or] the president of the United States — this goes way beyond just having a political opinion.”
“If he cannot get the president, he will… take a Mike Flynn,” Gohmert added.
As The Gateway Pundit reported, McCabe abruptly cancelled his testimony before the House Intelligence Committee scheduled two weeks. Sources told Fox News reporter Chad Pergram that they believe McCabe canceled on the panel over fears he would be asked about recently demoted Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s wife, who worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 presidential election.
McCabe’s testimony came amid speculation he was aware of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page’s anti-Trump bias.
This month, Fox News reporter Bret Baier tweeted the following: “Text-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): “I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy’s office-that there’s no way he gets elected-but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.It’s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you’re 40.”

In August, ABC News reported that Strzok quit Team Mueller for unknown reasons.
“It’s unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller’s team of nearly two dozen lawyers, investigators and administrative staff. Strzok, who has spent much of his law enforcement career working counterintelligence cases and has been unanimously praised by government officials who spoke with ABC News, is now working for the FBI’s human resources division,” reported Mike Levine.
Department of Justice has since launched a review of Peter Stzrok’s role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Fox News reports:
Two senior Justice Department officials have confirmed to Fox News that the department’s Office of Inspector General is reviewing the role played in the Hillary Clinton email investigation by Peter Stzrok, a former deputy director for counterintelligence at the FBI who was removed from the staff of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III earlier this year, after Mueller learned that Strzok had exchanged anti-Trump texts with a colleague.
Reacting to Strzok’s ‘anti-Trump,’ texts, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said, “We now know why Strzok was dismissed, why the FBI and DOJ refused to provide us this explanation, and at least one reason why they previously refused to make [FBI] Deputy Director [Andrew] McCabe available to the Committee for an interview.”
