BREAKING: Republican Party Further Divides As Mueller Inches Closer To Donald Trump

Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh just launched an attack against Fox News in a recent tirade of tweets this past Thursday, demanding the network to stop “badmouthing” special counsel Robert Mueller.

“And by the way Fox News, Robert Mueller is an American hero,” Walsh tweeted Thursday night. “Marine, Vietnam Veteran, he has dedicated his life to serving this country and keeping Americans and America safe. Quit badmouthing him. Cut it out.”

“When I grew up, the FBI were the good guys, and the Soviet Union were the bad guys,” he continued in another tweet. “I watch @FoxNews today, and they tell me the FBI are the bad guys, and Russia are the good guys. Such bulls—t.”

Walsh later attacked President Trump for failing to call on a special counsel to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

“‘We can’t have a foreign country messing with our elections,’ Trump said in my dream,” Walsh tweeted. “And then I woke up.”

Conservatives recently have been ramping up their assault on Mueller following former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn’s guilty plea for lying to FBI agents about his conversations with several Russian officials.

Fox News hosts have broadcasts their own personal attacks on Mueller, and Republicans on Capitol Hill have recently demanded an investigation into “unprecedented bias against President Trump” in the FBI.

“A witch hunt continues against the president with tremendous bias, no purpose and no end in sight,” Repersentive Matt Gaetz  said.

The campaign against Mueller follows the news last week that Mueller had removed a veteran FBI agent from the investigation amidst an investigation into the possibility of the agent sending out anti-Trump text messages.

Peter Strzok reportedly sent out text messages with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whom he was dating, that seemed to support then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
