Well, the Mueller hearings are off to a solid start, and by solid, I mean a potential disaster. We all know the facts, folks. The report is public. There was no effort on behalf of the Trump administration to hinder the investigation, so out goes the obstruction narrative. And there was no evidence to link the Trump campaign colluding with the Kremlin during the 2016 election. Now, there was a little theater concerning the terms collusion and conspiracy, with ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller saying that the two terms are not legally synonymous. That’s not what he wrote in his report. Ranking member Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) was the one who pointed out Mueller’s inconsistency on the terms, directly citing Mueller’s report.
Mueller stumbles badly on whether “collusion” is a synonym for “conspiracy” in Russian election interference. He says no, only to have his report quoted back to him saying the words are synonymous. He then says he’ll go with what the report says.— Brit Hume (@brithume) July 24, 2019
Perhaps he forgot, but Mueller did write on page 180 of Volume I that "as defined in legal dictionaries, collusion is largely synonymous with conspiracy." Rep. Collins is correct pic.twitter.com/rW0T4SOvgI— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) July 24, 2019
Collins just did a thorough job of showing how out to lunch Mueller is on his own report. Mueller claimed collusion and conspiracy weren't synonymous and that his investigation didn't look into collusion. His own report literally says collusion and conspiracy are "synonymous." pic.twitter.com/d2XR9AiIyL— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) July 24, 2019
Mueller says he cannot comment on the Steele Dossier. He can comment extensively on the devious nature of Russian-directed Twitter bots, but he cannot comment on one of the foundational documents of this entire sordid saga. Oh well!— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) July 24, 2019
This is a dissaster for the Democrats:— Meech (@michi83) July 24, 2019
1- Mueller had to admit an incosistency in his public statement and his report
2- Mueller had to adsmit he had no charge to determine “innocence”
3- Mueller is constantly asking for “citations” making clear that he is not prepared.
Mueller answers “no” when asked by Ranking Member Collins if his investigation was ever curtailed or hindered at any point.— NBC News (@NBCNews) July 24, 2019
So far, Mueller appears nervous and unprepared. The Democrats will be recycling the same (trash) talking points they’ve used to prop up this manufactured product spewed out by the Democrat-media complex. It’s pathetic. The Left still cannot handle that Trump is president and if they keep this up, the man will cruise to a second term. So, if that’s the end result, please Democrats—keep throwing this tantrum.
Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) also noted that if there was Russian collusion, Mueller could have charged others within the president’s orbit. That was possible. He didn’t. I wonder why.
