Along with calling for Mueller's resignation, Gaetz is pushing for the appointment of another special counsel to investigate the Uranium One
deal, which Trump associates--notably, longtime political operative Roger Stone --and Fox News pundits say would knee-cap Mueller's investigation. Despite the fundamental flaws in this tactic, Gaetz reportedly made his case to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who stonewalled it. "When I asked the attorney general, he said that any issues regarding Uranium One
fell under his recusal," Gaetz told Business Insider. Sessions then "departed the room when I was insisting that a special counsel be appointed."
