(And not a single indictment had to do with Russian collusion or obstruction -- but details)
The revolution won't be televised, but it will be tweeted about.
First Nadler is introducing Mueller and his counsel and administering the oath.
(Dig that hole...)
Collusion was the media's term, don't let them fool you.
That's not your job, Bob. Our system of justice is INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, not innocent unless exonerated.
@realDonaldTrump and his trolling has gotten in Nadler's head so bad he called a congressional committee about it. 🤣
Mueller punts this, doesn't give Nadler the answer he wanted.
... He did submit written answers, but didn't sit for a perjury trap.
Nadler thinks this is a slam dunk. It's not.
Mueller answers: "No."
Collins points out Mueller said it was in his report.
Mueller says the report is right -- which means collusion/conspiracy are synonymous.
This is all a show, folks. They're playing games because they got caught lying about a Russian conspiracy.
"You wrote 180 pages about potential crimes that weren't charged or decided. And you managed to violate every principle and sacred tradition of prosecutors."
She's a clown.
She's focused on obstruction. But she's going too fast for Old Bob.
He suggests Mueller and others just wanted an endless fishing expedition for political purposes.
He's such a clown.
Brings up Natalia V - "outside my purview."
This says it all, folks.
Chabot asks about Fusion GPS and the relationship with the Clinton campaign.
Why? Why waste time talking about something that DID NOT HAPPEN?
Oh, because Johnson isn't interested in truth and justice, just partisan politics.
But, TWIST! He didn't get rid of Mueller...
Gohmert up now. This could be interesting. Gohmert asks right away who wrote the statement Mueller read when he closed the case. Mueller won't answer. Gohmert responds: "I knew you didn't write it."
Mueller answers summer of 2017.
Gohmert in disbelief asks "you didn't know that before he was part of your team?"
Mueller says when he did find out, he moved swiftly.
Mueller says he never ordered anyone to delete anything.
Mueller: "I can't answer that" (because it would be speculation)
and... TWIST... Trump DID NOT FIRE MUELLER.
Duetch is asking about something that did not happen and acting like he's dunking over Jordan.
While ignoring what started this whole thing.
Ask yourself if that's the act of honest politicians interested in truth, or if they're blind partisans LYING to the American public.
Mueller: "Very few."
Jordan pins Mueller down saying the Downer/G-Pop meeting was the source.
"How'd he find out?" (G-pop)
Mueller says he can't get into it but Jordan laughs.
Questions begin with Richmond (D-LA) up first. He goes RIGHT back to the obstruction well and Don M's quotes.
Who is going to be the first on the right to ask about the edited voicemail?
He brings up that Mueller admits the Trump Tower might have been a set up. Asks Mueller who NV met with before the Trump Tower meeting...
Funny how NONE OF THE DEMS are talking about Vol 1 or even bothering to attack the (important) questions the other members are asking re Vol 1.
Mueller: "We could not make that decision."
Buck: "You made the decision on Russian (conspiracy) and didn't charge, but not on obstruction" (paraphrased the last bit)...
... Yet he doesn't ask any questions about that. Only obstruction.
Funny how that keeps happening. After YEARS of promises.
Mr. McClintock (R-CA) up now... Starts off with asking Mueller about his meeting with Trump the day before he was appointed.
Mueller says he did not think he was in consideration for the SCO when he took that meeting.
"My question is why did you edit the transcript?"
Mueller: "I wouldn't agree we did anything to hide-"
McClintock cuts him off, Mueller won't go further.
McClintock goes into Kilminik now...
Nadler doesn't think that's an appropriate question and moves on to the next dem, Ms. Mucarsel-Powell. Who goes right back to obstruction.
