Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) joined SiriusXM hosts Matthew Boyle and Amanda House and launched a scathing attack on former FBI head and now Special Counsel Robert Mueller on this week’s edition of Breitbart News Sunday.

“I’ve been complaining since the day he was appointed, he did so much damage to the FBI,” Gohmert said of Mueller, offering up multiple criticisms of his long FBI career, from his alleged mishandling of the Boston bombing in 2013 to the now-infamous anthrax investigations over a decade earlier.

“This guy has done so much damage to our country, to the greatest law enforcement force for good in history, the FBI … he did a lot of damage. It’s time to stop the damage that he’s doing right now,” added Gohmert.

He also faulted Mueller for his handling of the 2001 anthrax investigation.

“This guy’s done so much damage, he should never have been appointed, and if he had had any decency about him at all, he would have immediately declined because he couldn’t investigate anything Comey is involved in,” he said, suggesting Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey are basically “joined at the hip.”

Earlier in the segment, Gohmert also praised President Donald Trump’s recent offer of a compromise on immigration, saying it completely exposed Democrats as not being the least bit interested in finding a solution but merely in playing politics with the issue in the coming mid-term elections.

Gohmert said the administration should now rescind the offer democrats have since rejected so as not to continue to encourage more ongoing illegal immigration until a real solution for border security can be implemented.

Breitbart News Sunday is broadcast live on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 from 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. ET. This week’s interview with Gohmert can be heard in full below:
