REP. TREY GOWDY (R-SC): What happens when people who are supposed to cure the conflict of interest have even greater conflicts of interest than those they replace? That's not a rhetorical question. You nor I nor anyone else would ever sit Peter Strzok on a jury. We wouldn't have him objectively, dispassionately investigate anything knowing what we know now. Why didn't we know it ahead of time?
REP. STEVE CHABOT (R-OH): My question to you is how with a straight face can you say that this group of Democrat partisans are unbiased and will give president trump a fair shake?
REP. JIM JORDAN (R-OH): This is unbelievable! And I'm here to tell you Mr. Rosenstein, I think the public trust in this whole thing is gone. So it seems to me you've got two things you can do. You are the guy in charge. You are the guy that picked Mueller. You are the guy who wrote the memo saying why needed to fire Comey. You are the guy in charge. You can disband the Mueller special prosecutor and you can do what we've all called for. Appoint a second special council to look into this, to look into Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr, everything else we've learned in the last several weeks.
