(National Sentinel) Executive Branch: A U.S. representative from Texas is warning Americans that there most definitely is a Trump-related conspiracy afoot, but it has nothing to do with the president’s alleged “collusion” with Russia.
“We have a conspiracy remaining afoot in the Department of Justice that is out to destroy this president and they’ve got to be fired, if not worse,” Gohmert told Fox News, as reported by The Hill.
Gohmert also targeted fired FBI Director James Comey for failing to write a memo about his meeting with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in which he said she told him to treat the Hillary Clinton email probe as a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”
During last week’s Senate testimony, Comey said he kept memos of all his meetings with President Donald J. Trump. Critics like Gohmert have said doing so with Trump but not with Obama or other Obama administration officials he interacted with at Justice suggests political motivations rather than genuine concern.
“When he said that the president lied about him and he used the L-word, Comey was lying. How do we know? Look at all of the things he said. That was ridiculous to not have done a memo, and then I heard him say he had done the memo and then he talked with some of his colleagues,” the congressman said.
Gohmert called for serious legal consequences for all Justice Department officials Comey talked to regarding the memos.
“We need to round up everybody he talked to, because they were all conspiring against the president,” he said.
