Many questions remain about the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the removal of an FBI agent from Robert Mueller's Russia probe, according to Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

Gaetz referred to testimony from FBI Director Christopher Wray. "There are a lot of unanswered questions… we don't know if taxpayer funds were used to buy political opposition research to discredit the duly elected president of the United States. We don't know if Hillary Clinton got leniency or special treatment," he said Friday on Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

The congressman said he asked Wray if special counsel Mueller recruited people "specifically because of their anti-[President Donald] Trump bias, and we didn't get an answer to that, either."

"Each and every day, we seem to get a new piece of evidence suggesting that there is a pro-Hillary Clinton bias and anti-Trump bias. Christopher Wray told us there is an investigation going on to explore those things," Gaetz said.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions should shut down the Russia probe, Gaetz said. "We can't sit around and wait as the president is undermined by an investigation that I believe Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions should have ended long ago… the attorney general has the power to shut it down and we need him to step up and do his job."

FBI agent Peter Strzok could be behind "the entire fake Russian collusion narrative," he said.

Strzok was removed from the probe after he sent texts that appeared to mock Trump, according to CNN.

"Until we get those answers there is no credibility to the Mueller probe and Hillary Clinton was never truly exposed to the scrutiny that she deserved," Gaetz said.
