Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs — one of President Trump’s favorite TV hosts — questioned on Monday why Republicans in Washington, D.C. aren’t “screaming for the arrest” of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

“Why is the establishment in Washington D.C. not screaming for the arrest of Andrew McCabe and all of his cohorts in the DOJ and the FBI?” Dobbs said during an interview with American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp, according to Mediate. “Why is it that there seems to be almost a satisfaction in the status quo, no matter how rancid and corrupt in the swamp that is D.C.?”

Schlapp said he hopes the new Attorney General William Barr will take some action on McCabe, who confirmed in a recent “60 Minutes” interview that the Justice Department at one point spoke about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Schlapp then suggested that Republicans are afraid to go after the “deep state” because “they might become its next victim.”
