A resolution being introduced by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., calls for the resignation of special counsel Robert Mueller, the Washington Examiner reports.

Gaetz claims Mueller should step down for a lack of action regarding the 2010 Uranium One deal cleared by Hillary Clinton's State Department.

Mueller had served as FBI director during that time, the Examiner noted. And the resolution claims: "any thorough and honest investigation into the corruption of American-uranium related business must include investigating the willful blindness of the FBI and its leaders."

The uranium deal ended up with Russian ownership of a Canadian company with U.S. assets, the Examiner reported. It was completed the same time former President Bill Clinton received a $500,000 speaking fee from a bank in Russia linked to the deal, according to the website, which said the Clinton Foundation also received donations from others linked to the deal.

The resolution says Mueller is compromised and should step down immediately.

Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., and Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, are listed as co-sponsors on the resolution.

The Washington Post noted that President Donald Trump has often brought up the deal as a way of pointing fingers at Hillary Clinton. But the newspaper claimed there is "scant evidence" she was directly involved. In approving the deal it said nine government agencies make up the committee that approves such deals.
