Robert Mueller was lethargic, stuttering, and ridiculously evasive during testimony before the House judicial committee this morning.
But, the soundbites were all that mattered to democrats and media propagandists.
His lackluster answers to Republicans, who pointed out the gross injustice of his ‘obstruction’ claims, were only contrasted with his eager submission to the carefully scripted narrative brought by each and every democrat.
It was like their questions were coordinated with the same catch phrase ‘no one is above the law.’
But they conveniently forgot about Hillary Clinton who has been above the law for years, and scores of other democrats who refuse to follow basic justice.
However, Mueller didn’t get away with everything. Rep. Doug Collins caught him changing his story.
Breitbart news reported:
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) caught former Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a contradiction in his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday morning, noting that Mueller was saying something different now than he said in his report.
Democrats had hauled Mueller before the committee after the report found that there had been no collusion between any American and the Russian government in attempting to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, and failed to arrive at a conclusion about obstruction of justice.
(Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined that there was insufficient basis for an obstruction of justice prosecution.)
Dissatisfied with the outcome of the investigation, and with President Donald Trump’s repeated claims of exoneration, Democrats were eager to have Mueller testify directly. He agreed to do so but stated that he would not testify to anything that was different from his report.
In his opening statement, Mueller stated: “We did not address collusion, which is not a legal term. Rather, we focused on whether the evidence was sufficient to charge any member of the campaign with taking part in a criminal conspiracy, and it was not.”
That statement suggested that the report had not, in fact, concluded that Trump had colluded with Russia — contrary to what the president has said, and with common public understanding of the report.
Collins began by asking Mueller whether “collusion” and “conspiracy” were synonymous. Mueller said, “No.”
However, Collins read Mueller’s own report to him: “On page 180 of volume one of your report, you wrote, ‘As defined in legal dictionaries, collusion is largely synonymous with conspiracy as that crime is set forth in the general federal conspiracy statute, 18 U.S.C. 371; … Are you sitting here today testifying something different than what your report states?”
Mueller struggled to explain the contradiction, and ultimately admitted that the interpretation in his report was the correct one — rather than the answer he had just given Congress.
