Yeah, maybe we shouldn’t be shocked about former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testifying again, but alas, here we are. From Mueller all but firing the ‘House Democrats impeach Trump’ flare at his closing presser in May to Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) being a total snot with Hope Hicks, even the most partisan Democrat would be hard pressed to defend this circus. It’s a witch-hunt. And Hicks’ appalling treatment by House Democrats all but proves that they’re out to get Trump. Again, we all knew this. We’ve known this for some time, but these trips down memory lane should only remind us to vote come November 2020. In July, this media myth is about to enter a new phase, as Mueller has agreed to testify before Congress over collusion delusion (via NYT):
Robert S. Mueller III, the former special counsel, has agreed to testify in public before Congress next month about his investigation into Russia’s election interference and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump, House Democrats announced on Tuesday night.
Coming nearly three months after the release of Mr. Mueller’s report, two back-to-back hearings on July 17 before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees promise to be among the most closely watched spectacles of Mr. Trump’s presidency. They have the power to potentially reshape the political landscape around his re-election campaign and a possible impeachment inquiry by the Democrat-controlled House.
Mr. Mueller, a strait-laced former F.B.I. director who has spoken publicly only once about his work as special counsel, had resisted taking the witness stand. He knows he is certain to face questions from both sides of a pitched political fight. Many Democrats are eager to employ him to build a case against Mr. Trump, and Republicans are just as eager to vindicate the president. His 448-page written report, Mr. Mueller asserted, should speak for itself.
In the end, though, the two committees issued subpoenas compelling Mr. Mueller to speak, and he accepted.
The report has been dropped. It exonerates Trump on collusion and leaves it open for interpretation if he obstructed justice. The only evidence that says he did comes from the mouths of CNN’s commentator corps that’s insufferably liberal; most are former Obama officials and belief is not evidence. Sean Davis of The Federalist wrote two good posts that just fillets Mueller, the Obama DOJ, and this whole investigation, namely that the report shows that the special counsel and his army of Clinton-ite lawyers tried very hard to prove collusion, but couldn’t. The closing presser added more to the notion that this was a political hit job, and how this return to Congress is the cherry on top. So, how should the GOP fight back?
I mean the Mueller report debunked the entire Clinton-funded opposition research project that used Russian sources that we all call the Trump dossier. This horse has been beyond beaten to death. There’s no longer any brain matter to be mashed about on the pavement. And no matter how hard the Democrats may try to revive said dead horse, it will never get up and gallop towards impeachment station. Mueller even said he wouldn’t say anything else that hasn’t already been disclosed to the public (via CBS News):
We conducted an independent criminal investigation and reported the results to the attorney general, as required by department regulations. The attorney general then concluded that it was appropriate to provide our report to Congress and to the American people. At one point in time I requested that certain portions of the report be released, the attorney general preferred to make - preferred to make the entire report public all at once and we appreciate the attorney general made the report largely public and I certainly do not question the attorney general's good faith in that decision.
Now I hope and expect this to be the only time that I speak to you on this matter. I am making that decision myself, no one has told me whether I can or should testify or speak further about this matter.
There has been discussion about an appearance before Congress. Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. It contains our finding, and analysis, and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose the words carefully and the work speaks for itself. And the report is my testimony, I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress.
Now, this presser seemed to be like the last hurrah for Mueller, but obviously, that’s not the case. He could very well just reiterate what we already know. The Democrats can act like Trump-acting frothing morons for hours, with the GOP refusing to ask questions—because there’s no need—and adjourn this whole fiasco. We’re scrapping at the bottom of the barrel here, and by we—I mean House Democrats. This Russia collusion myth has already been exposed. The GOP doesn’t need to waste time sliciing up a narrative that was a manufactured product of the liberal media establishment. I doubt there are any bombshells he kept in his pocket. His investigative team was made up of partisan Democrats and they found nothing after two years. Let the man talk and then end this thing. I guess where you counterattack is once again reiterate how this whole affair is just a pathetic and increasingly desperate Democratic Party trying to find a legitimate reason to impeach the president. I want to prepare for a nuclear attack from Mueller, but what else is there to prepare for? This entire effort has been exposed.
