A social media campaign urging President Trump to fire Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has gained steam after reports that he oversaw the FBI when the agency allegedly hid evidence of Russian officials engaging in a bribery scheme under the Obama administration — just before the US gave Moscow a large amount of uranium.

The report detailed how millions of dollars were funneled into the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and serving on a board that would decide on the controversial Uranium One deal. Mueller and Rod Rosenstein were also in the committee, which approved the deal despite knowing that “Russian nuclear officials were engaged in a racketeering scheme involving bribes, kickbacks and money laundering,” The Hill reported.

“They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow,” The Hill report detailed.

Tweets calling for Mueller to be fired are now gaining thousands of retweets and spreading like wild fire, as people point out the irony in the fact that the only real evidence we have now seen of Russian collusion was under the Obama Administration and involved the man investigating Trump for it.

Attorney Gregg Jarrett also called for Mueller and Rosenstein to resign from the investigation into Russian collusion with the Trump administration during an appearance on Hannity after the story broke.

“They’ve got to be fired or they have to resign,” Jarrett stated. “It totally compromises their integrity, I don’t see any other way out.”

House Republicans have formally asked leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee  to convene public hearings that will bring Mueller’s team “out of the shadows.”

“This team has sweeping authority and an open-ended mission, yet they are allowed to operate largely in secret,” the letter, signed by 19 Republicans states.
