After two years and upwards of $30 million taxpayer dollars spent, Special Counsel Robert Mueller failed to sustain any “Russian Collusion” allegations against a single American, including President Donald Trump. But that didn’t stop his team from charging Trump Associates for unrelated offenses and buoying Democrats false narrative the president and members of his inner circle were “guilty,” of something.
Even after no evidence of Russian collusion was outlined in the Mueller Report, Democrats and the complicit fake news media continued to sling mud. All that came to a screeching halt when Robert Mueller sat in front of House Republicans. With Mueller facing pointed questions, he squirmed, fidgeted, and dodged the most serious unanswered issues. Despite offering little in the form of transparency, GOP questioners culled three crucial facts out of him.
1: Mueller Testimony Confirmed Probe Was A ‘Witch Hunt’
In a telling symbol that tarnished the appearance of any fair play from the Mueller Probe, the special counsel brought along a last-minute companion — top aide and never-Trumper Aaron Zebley. It was a sign of the bias the left-leaning media tried to dismiss for two years.
“So, Robert Mueller has now asked for his long-time Never Trumper lawyer to sit beside him and help with answers. What’s this all about? His lawyer represented the ‘basement server guy’ who got off free in the Crooked Hillary case. This should NOT be allowed. Rigged Witch Hunt,” Pres. Trump tweeted.
The move broke House rules regarding witnesses notice. But with Democrats holding a majority in the House, rule-breaking has become a common occurrence. Showing up with a Trump-hating top aide was par for the course.
“You don’t get to change the rules right before kickoff, especially after a 22 month, $30 million investigation,” GOP Congressman Jim Jordan tweeted.
After Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert finished with Mueller, it was apparent that the special counsel glossed over the inherent bias by his “12 Angry Democrats” stating that he doesn’t look at investigators’ politics. By contrast, he was forced to remove disgraced ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok when watchdog groups uncovered he was actively working against the president during and after the election.
“If you fired Peter Strzok because of an appearance of bias, but you kept people who showed up for what they’d hoped would be a victory party, and you kept people who donated to Secretary Clinton…you’ve got to reconcile how much bias is too much and how much of it is okay,” former Congressman Trey Gowdy said.
Compounding Mueller’s credibility crisis, he avoided reviewing the Clinton Campaign’s collusion with paid Russian operatives to create the phony dossier. When asked, Mueller would only say that was out of his “purview.” And that’s the linchpin right there. Mueller was tasked with investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. However, he confirmed during testimony that he almost exclusively focused on President Trump and his associates. It was a witch hunt from the get-go.
2: Mueller Misled Americans About ‘Obstruction’ Allegations
The fake news media has worked hand-in-glove with radical Democrats to claim the report does not “exonerate” him from obstruction of justice. Mueller was quick to respond to Democrats stating the report does not “exonerate” him. Mueller promptly replied, “Yes.” But that twisted response appears to deliberately sidestep the legal purpose of law enforcement investigations. The Russian investigation was supposed to gather evidence of Russian interference and collusion. Mueller and his Angry Democrats found zero concerning the president.
Without a crime to cover up, a person cannot lawfully commit obstruction because there is nothing to hide. The legal standard also needs to have “intent” to cover up a crime. Mueller conveniently left that part out until GOP lawmakers ripped him to shreds on the legal point.
“If somebody knows they did not conspire with anybody from Russia to affect the election, and they see the big Justice Department with people that hate that person coming after them, and then a special counsel appointed who hires dozen or more people that hate that person, and he knows he’s innocent,” Texas Rep. Gohmert said. “What he’s doing is not obstructing justice, he’s pursuing justice.”
Mueller stammered, “I take your question” in an evasive response. People in the room laughed at the former special counsel.
3: Democrats Had A Very Bad Day
The Mueller farce was Democrats’ last-ditch effort to get Mueller to say something, anything that could impugn the president. That simply didn’t happen.
“The big takeaway to me was: the Democrats wanted this to fuel their impeachment narrative. And, I’ll bet you if they could cancel this afternoon’s HPSCI hearing, they would,” former House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said.
President Trump agreed that the Mueller testimony upended the fading credibility of Democratic lawmakers heading into the 2020 elections. For two years, they cried, “impeach!” But recently, even Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi scuttled articles of impeachment brought by radical members of her party.
“They are devastated,” Trump added. “The Democrats lost so big today. Their party is in shambles right now. They’ve got the squad leading their party. They are a mess… So many of the people that were the most outspoken, and they say this was a devastating day for the Democrats and you know it. And everybody else knows it. This was a devastating day for the Democrats.”
Following the Mueller testimony, President Trump’s approval ratings stood just one point off their highest mark since taking office.
