Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Robert Mueller failed miserably in his mission for the Deep State this morning. His assigned mission today was of course to create in a few hours what he could not find during his 20-month long Witch Hunt: The pretense for impeaching President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words).
Rather than carry out his assigned duties, Mueller instead presented the stark reality of a doddering, bumbling figurehead who doesn’t even understand what his duties as special counsel were, or of what the final report with his signature on it contained. The last time Americans were treated to so many instances of “I don’t recall,” “I don’t remember,” and “I’m not going to address that” was the last time Hillary Clinton testified before congress while Secretary of State. In fact, here is a video of Mueller presenting himself to the House Judiciary Committee this morning:
What little memory Mueller does still possess in his waning days was also revealed to be highly selective. He could remember minute details about whether and how the weasel Andrew Weissman was involved in picking the team of Trump-haters who filled the special counsel’s staff; he had no problem at all recalling the specific reasons why he dumped the Trump-hating Peter Strzok and his illicit lover Lisa Page from his staff; and he had no problem recalling the exact details of the meeting he held with President Trump and Rod Rosenstein on May 16, 2017 to discuss the open FBI Director’s job – which just happened to be the day before he was appointed to become special counsel by Rosenstein himself.
Yet, this upright man, this pillar of integrity and Washington, DC decorum, had no recollection whatsoever of the series of documented meetings he held with Rosenstein from May 10 through May 15, the week leading up to his appointment. Funny how that works, huh?
Mueller did his best to stick with his obvious script that the only reason why he didn’t seek to indict President Trump for obstruction was due to the DOJ policy preventing the indictment of a sitting President, but he had to give that one up over lunch when his lawyers likely reminded him that he repeatedly told Attorney General William Barr back in March that that DOJ policy had no bearing on that decision. As a result, Mueller meekly corrected the record during his opening afternoon statement to the House Intelligence Committee.
Perhaps Mueller’s most astonishing representation during his morning testimony was his statement that Christopher Steele and his phony Dossier were “not in my purview” as special counsel. Huh? Beg pardon? Did I hear that right?
Think about that for a moment: The Steele Dossier, funded by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the DNC, was the event that started the entire Trump/Russia Collusion fantasy. Without that fake Dossier, there would have been no allegations of collusion, no illegal entrapment efforts by the Obama FBI/DOJ/CIA, no illegal FISA warrants, no Rod Rosenstein, no Special Counsel.
But in Mueller’s perverted way of DC Swamp Thought, he had no obligation to spend a moment looking into the origins of the events that led to his appointment in the first place. That statement in and of itself is an outright admission of the despicable bias that bled throughout his entire operation from cradle to grave.
Today was a disaster for the Democrats, plain and simple. I will leave you with a couple of clips, first of Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe – himself a former U.S. Attorney – exposing Mueller’s warped views of DOJ rules:
And second, of the great Jim Jordan leaving Mueller flustered and blubbering:
That is all.
Whoops, a PS: Check out this exchange during his afternoon testimony with Devin Nunes:
Nunes: Before George Papadopoulos was arrested by your agents in July of 2017, he was given $10,000 in cash. Who gave him that money?
Mueller: Not in my purview.
Nunes: You investigated him, you charged him, and you had him arrested.
Mueller: Not going to answer.
