Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman on Wednesday blasted Christopher Wray, the former high-ranking Justice Department official who's nominated to head the FBI, warning President Donald Trump "he's probably another yes-man."
In a scathing appraisal on Newsmax TV, the former federal prosecutor told "Newsmax Now" host Bill Tucker he "wasn't terribly impressed" with Wray's testimony at his confirmation hearing Wednesday.
"He looks like he's probably another yes-man," Klayman said. "They asked him 'are you going to cooperate with [special investigator and former FBI head Robert] Mueller? Are you going to try to obstruct his investigation?' And he responds 'well, Mueller is a man of great integrity.'
"Mueller is not a man of integrity," Klayman declared.
"Establishment Republicans would like to see Trump gone and that's been the case from day one," he said."They want to run their own establishment candidate in 2020. And don't be surprised if they join with Democrats with regard to articles of impeachment. There may be some that may do that."
"He just has to hang tough," he said, adding those around the president also have to be "smarter."
