Robert Mueller told the Democrats one word they never thought they would hear
Democrats are counting on Robert Mueller one last time to bail them out of their impeachment mess.
But things are not going according to plan.
That’s because Robert Mueller told Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats one word they never thought they would hear.
The Democrats’ last chance to make political hay out of the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory is Robert Mueller testifying before Congress.
But Mueller does not want public testimony.
His team is balking at the idea because they think it would make him appear “political.”
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reluctance to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter.
The special counsel’s team has conveyed the notion that Mueller does not want to appear political after staying behind the scenes for two years and not speaking as he conducted his investigation into President Donald Trump. One option is to have him testify behind closed doors. But the notion that Mueller would only answer questions in private has become a sticking point, according to a source, as Democrats believe the public needs to hear directly from the special counsel.
Rank-and-file Democrats made clear Tuesday they believe Mueller must testify publicly given the gravity of the investigation.
Sources caution numerous options are being considered in the negotiations between the committee and the special counsel’s office at this point.
Critics suspect there is something else going on.
If Mueller testifies publicly, he will have to affirm the findings in his report and state once and for all there are no hidden bombshells about collusion or obstruction of justice.
That would end the ability of the media and Democrats to scream about a “cover up” of the Mueller Report.
By not testifying, Mueller is actually helping the Democrats in their anti-Trump plot.
