Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert believes government personnel working for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are spying on his office, he told WMAL’s “Morning on the Mall” Friday.
“I don’t doubt for a minute that he has people who have been looking into my background. I’ve been told as much by some other folks,” Gohmert told WMAL host and Daily Caller editorial director Vince Coglianese.
Gohmert continued, “I’ve had people who work for the government saying they know everybody that comes in your office.” (RELATED: Rosenstein’s Comments About Strzok’s Credibility Issues Are Not Good For The Russia Probe)
The congressman caveated that he did not believe any such operation was overseen by Rosenstein personally but that it was people who worked for him. “There’s always deniability,” he said.
Gohmert’s comments came after Rosenstein’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Thursday, where he was repeatedly pressed on his role in renewing the FISA warrant on former Trump staffer Carter Page.
A spokesman from the Department of Justice did not respond to a request for comment.
