The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department should expect heightened scrutiny from Congress in 2018, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said Tuesday on "Fox & Friends."

"So in 2018, expect more depositions, more sworn testimony and a real expectation from the Congress that the Department of Justice and FBI will comply with the subpoenas that we have sent them. Our patience is wearing thin," Gaetz said in the interview.

Gaetz criticized testimony that deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe has given.

"There (are) a number of inconsistencies that I certainly saw coming from the testimony that Andrew McCabe has given over time to the Congress, and I don't think it's a coincidence that Andrew McCabe announced his retirement from the FBI just days after providing sworn testimony to the Judiciary Committee.

"Why were some of the very people that were involved in clearing Hillary Clinton then drafted onto the Mueller probe to go and persecute the president? It seems very suspect," Gaetz said in the interview.

"We need to get this off the president's desk and have him focused on preserving the country," Gaetz added.The congressman serves on the House Judiciary Committee that provides oversight of the Justice Department and the FBI. In November, he introduced a resolution that called on special counsel Robert Mueller to resign, The Pensacola News-Journal reported.
