Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) produced a chart for the ages at an oversight hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, in an attempt to convince Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the Justice Department ought to appoint a special prosecutor to probe the so-called “Uranium One” scandal.
“We’ve got a chart here that shows just how integral the relationship is with Mr. Rosenstein, Mr. Mueller, into this whole Uranium One thing,” Gohmert told Sessions, waving a piece of paper with the chart printed on it while his staff held up a larger version on poster board behind him.
The White House and Republicans have pushed the Uranium One narrative in response to increased scrutiny on President Trump and 2016 election meddling.
“It sure stinks to high heaven, and it doesn’t appear to me they ought to be involved in investigating,” Gohmert said.
