Following several bombshell reports exposing members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team for an inherent bias against President Donald Trump, many are wanting something to be done.

On Wednesday, several Republican leaders held a news conference on Capitol Hill demanding an investigation into the FBI for giving failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton special treatment while employing investigators who “hate” Trump. 

“We now know that people who hate President Trump were assigned to investigate him,” Republican Florida Rep. Matthew Gaetz said. “This (Mueller) investigation has been undermined and tainted and he should be fired.”

“Hillary Clinton never seems to have been put in jeopardy of real investigation. The processes and procedures that applied to Hillary Clinton are different than process and procedures that would apply to any other American,” Gaetz added.

The Republican members of Congress – including Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Jody Hice of Georgia, and Andy Biggs of Arizona – declared that the FBI and Department of Justice clearly had a “double standard” for Clinton and Trump.

“Special deals for special people is not the American way,” Meadows said.

The GOP lawmakers are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a second special prosecutor to investigate Clinton and her many scandals, including her private email server and her decision to delete tens of thousands of emails during a FBI investigation.

“Why are the same people that mishandled and provided bias to the Hillary Clinton investigation, why are they still in this administration?” asked Biggs. “Why do they continue when they have demonstrated distinct bias against this president and this administration.”

The GOP news conference follows a recent uproar with several reports exposing Mueller’s probe as biased and impartial.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that a top prosecutor from Mueller’s team praised former acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by Trump for refusing to follow orders on the president’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by government watchdog Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, Andrew Weissmann wrote to Yates in January applauding her decision to defy Trump’s orders.

“I am so proud,” Weissmann wrote in the subject line of the email to Yates. “And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”

The report on Weissmann’s clear bias against Trump follows another top Mueller investigator being exposed for also having a vendetta against Trump.

Peter Strzok, a former top counterintelligence analyst at the FBI, was fired over the summer for sending text messages that mocked Trump.

Strzok was removed from Mueller’s probe for exchanging anti-Trump text messages with a colleague.

Following his removal, an investigation from the Office of Inspector General found that Strzok was the number two official in the counterintelligence division at the FBI that led the investigation into Clinton’s email scandal.

As noted by CNN, Strzok was the official who changed former FBI Director James Comey’s earlier draft language describing Clinton’s actions as “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”

Changing the language has massive political ramifications, and Strzok was trying to save Clinton from legal backlash over her private email server.

The GOP lawmakers have every right to push back on the double standard for Trump and Clinton. There’s a provable bias ruminating on Mueller’s team, where several top investigators handling the probe in alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election are destined to derail Trump’s presidency.

Clinton and her inner circle absolutely got a free pass while Meuller and his team are charging former Trump officials left and right. It’s about time Republicans stood up and are preparing to fight back.
