A top Republican just escalated Trump’s FBI attack with a disgusting demand (WATCH)

During an MSNBC interview, Florida Republican lawmaker Francis Rooney made a claim that was so outrageous, it left the host speechless.

In the midst of a glaringly transparent Republican campaign to publicly smear – and, thus, discredit – special counsel Robert Mueller amid his ongoing investigation into the Trump administration, Rooney suggested with defiant resolve that the FBI undergo a “purge.”

In typical Trump-inspired fashion, Rooney blames what he views as an affront to the Constitution on President Obama and, of course, Hillary Clinton. Rooney made no mention of the fact that, so far in Mueller’s investigation, four people have been charged with federal crimes. Rather, he focuses solely on the “deep state,” perpetuating the conservative talking point that somewhere, somehow, any government entity that attempts to hold the President accountable for his blatantly illegal or unconstitutional behavior is instead a “deep state” enemy.

Trump’s shills in Congress can continue to propagate this egregiously undemocratic language – to “purge” our FBI, for example – but that will not stop the wheels of justice from turning, and it most certainly will not stop voters from turning out en masse in 2018 to replace these utterly and embarrassingly inept and misguided politicians from serving any more terms in government.

Join millions calling for AG Barr to resign after he defied his constitutional obligations to protect Trump!
