Robert Mueller will never show his face in public again after he did one thing
There were a lot of shocking moments during Robert Mueller’s Wednesday Congressional testimony.
The former special counsel clearly wasn’t prepared at all.
And now Mueller will never show his face in public again after he did one thing.
Robert Mueller’s Congressional testimony went worse than anybody expected.
At one point, Mueller claimed he was unaware of what Fusion GPS is, despite them being the firm that created the dossier that eventually led to the formation of his special counsel.
But there may have been no moment more troubling than when Mueller outright ignored questions about the anti-Trump bias on his staff during his 2-year investigation.
Virtually everyone on his staff was a Democrat, or had strong anti-Trump views.
This includes Andrew Weissmann, who attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party in 2016.
Weissmann also praised former Attorney General Sally Yates, who refused to defend President Trump’s travel ban in court, despite it being her job.
In response to questions about Weissmann, Mueller simply said he’s “not going to talk about that.”
The Daily Caller reports:
Former special counsel Robert Mueller avoided questions Wednesday on the political bias of his staff and how that bias may have affected his nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
During testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee, Mueller told Republican North Dakota Rep. Kelly Armstrong that he did not vet the political leanings of his staff, which included prominent attorney Andrew Weissmann. Weissmann attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party in 2016.
“I don’t know when I found that out,” Mueller said of the revelation that Weissmann attended Clinton’s election night party.
Armstrong also pointed out Weissmann’s previous praise of former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who was fired after refusing to defend President Donald Trump’s travel ban in court.
“Not going to talk about that,” Mueller said.
These are the sort of questions that everybody expected Mueller to answer.
But he either wasn’t willing to answer them or he truly doesn’t know anything about the report he spent two years compiling.
Mueller’s testimony truly was a solid win for President Trump.
