#MuellerHearing House Intel thread. The great @AdamSchiff @RepAdamSchiff in the chair.

Once more unto the breach. Follows a magnificent performance by @RepJerryNadler & co whose Committee now out there demanding #impeachment.

Let’s roll.
A reminder to all our House Intel Dems: #Mueller is an older man. Don’t gabble. He’ll only ask you to repeat it. Good luck @ericswalwell & co.
Nobody however has yet asked Mueller about Barr’s testimony that he leaked Trump the name of a sealed case - (I think) - I was away from the TV for a few minutes. I hope @HouseIntel Dems do ask this.
Actually @DevinNunes it was not a politician it was a Consul General, it was Five Eyes intelligence
Actually @DevinNunes the collusion is with @Wikileaks and the GRU; and therefore the Trump campaign and the GRU. cc @RepSwalwell @RepAdamSchiff @AdamSchiff Appendix D A 11, ongoing, not concluded.
@AdamSchiff smiling, even mocking @DevinNunes on Zebley
I love they all call him Director Mueller.
Mueller “we did not reach counterintelligence conclusions. We briefed @FBI, worked with them on investigations, they were embedded.” He can’t cover their ground
Mueller is choosing to reiterate ongoing cases while reading statement into record.

Please @houseintel, it’s all about the extra redactions Barr put on Wikileaks. Wikileaks are conspirators with the GRU. Ask about this. Ask the processes for 2 ongoing cases on substance
Mueller: Russian government interference among the most serious he has ever seen. Reiterates to Schiff
Mueller to Schiff “indications that Trump campaign wanted Russia’s help”
@RepAdamSchiff is the biggest of big dogs, fantastic Mueller says Yes yes yes yes
This is what questioning should be: FAST. Answers are fast “It is not a witch hunt” Mueller calling it lies by Trump that Russia did not interfere
IMPORTANT: @AdamSchiff just extracted new info from Mueller: Mueller agreed the Russian government offered info to @GeorgePapa19 - calls Mifsud Russian intel, Schiff played a subtle slider there
To my knowledge Mueller had not yet admitted that Mifsud was RIS and he just did. Congrats @AdamSchiff

Meanwhile Looney Nunes decides to attack MI6 #goodluckwiththat
Yeah that photo of Mifsud and @BorisJohnson is not good for Boris #MuellerHearings @gchq
@DevinNunes is lying; Downer was an Ambassador from Australia, a consul, when he reported on @GeorgePapa19 thank you @ASDGovAu #FVEY #AdvanceAustraliaFair
Jim Himes good on social media but don’t ask Mueller to speculate on the election

Mueller careful on @wikileaks - it’s the heart of conspiracy so be careful
Very good Jim Himes gets Mueller to say offers of interference must be reported
Here is Cryin’ @RepRatcliffe again get the Kleenex ready
Mueller is not contradicting what he said to @tedlieu he is ADDING to it. He is saying he didn’t reach a conclusion on guilt but he ALSO said to @tedlieu that he *could not have done so*

House Intel Dems should get that clear: because he could not indict he did not conclude
Mueller’s correction is to the idea he found Trump guilty but could not charge him -

It’s better stated BECAUSE he could not charge him, he did not reach a conclusion @ericswalwell @AdamSchiff @TedLieu ask that
@RepTerriSewell is establishing that the campaign didn’t report help offer to FBI and tried to conceal it
@RepMikeTurner is patronizing Mueller like a moron

“Collusion” is not a legal term either but Rod Rosenstein used it in a letter to Mueller about Manafort. It doesn’t have to be a legal term to be used by SCO.
And @RepMikeTurner walks into a huge trap - Mueller said Barr might not have known Trump was not exonerated and it is why he put the line in the report to tell Bill Barr. More means to impeach Barr
Mueller says “allegedly” about Russian oligarch ties to Putin means an ongoing case he cannot discuss
Slow patient questioning by @RepAndreCarson elicits Mueller statement that @paulManafort sold data on Americans and was open to blackmail
Mueller is refusing to say if Trump campaign helped disseminate Wikileaks hacks :) told you so patribotics.blog/2019/04/22/wik…
CONGRATS @lukeharding1968 IN YOUR FACE @ggreenwald Mueller REFUSES TO DENY that @PaulManafort met @Wikileaks
Democrats, Mueller just threw you a huge huge plum. He said he DID ASK to expand his remit and REFUSED TO ANSWER if it was denied. That means BILL BARR LIED TO CONGRESS when he wrote no request of Mueller’s was turned down. Please somebody follow up! @RepAdamSchiff @ericswalwell
Ooh GOOD QUESTION. because Bill Barr leaked Mueller’s letter
Mueller is totally contradicting the Republican because BILL BARR LEAKED IT what an idiot
A review of Bill Barr’s testimony and I never found a transcript will show he testified “WE released it” he even admitted it
@RepMikeQuigley is on it now, he gets Mueller to say @wikileaks is a hostile intel service and @realDonaldTrump boosted illegal activity! #MuellerHearing
I think Mueller is more or less saying ask me about Wikileaks
HE”S SAYING WHAT I REPORTED. @wikileaks IS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR CRIMINAL CONDUCT #MuellerHearing google.com/amp/s/patribot…
He’s literally referring to Appendix D (A) 11 “matters not yet concluded by the date of the report” ASK HIM ABOUT THAT @houseintel @RepAdamSchiff google.com/amp/s/patribot…
Mueller referred a Republican to Zebley. TAKE THE HINT @houaeintel @ericswalwell ask Zebley what Mueller wanted answered
So far, hypocrite and liar @ggreenwald totally silent on Mueller saying he won’t deny “paul Manafort visited @Wikileaksgoogle.com/amp/s/patribot…
My hope is Dems will ask about “matters not yet concluded as of the date of this report Appendix D - Because it’s Wikileaks
@RepSwalwell @ericswalwell asking rapid fire good questions and getting fast “yes” answers on the obstruction and lies
Mueller smiling because @ericswalwell is getting close to it now
OOH Mueller may just have hinted he did verify part of the Steele dossier
@RepStefanik is 0-50 so far
Mueller said his investigators DID travel abroad hahaha implies ugly things for the GOP
@DevinNunes because Mifsud is fricking DEAD (probably) and if Russia killed Mifsud it’s classified
Mueller said he didn’t know if the Trump Tower server story was true (I think - said it might be being investigated but he didn’t know)
I hope a Dem follows up because I didn’t get what he was saying va investigation and @HurdOnTheHill characterization of the server - which was not what was reported in @slate by @FranklinFoer
Frankly the Democrats are not doing enough on @wikileaks which is the only place Mueller has been expansive in his answers @AdamSchiff @RepAdamSchiff
I’m told the question was “Did you investigate the Alfa Server” Mueller “I did not” that is true because @Comey and @FBI was investigating it. I misheard what Mueller said. He then clarified it could be investigated, not by him
Mueller says it doesn’t mean no evidence of conspiracy. Another stake in the heart of No Collusion mantra
Oooh - Mueller won’t deny @realDonaldTrump asserted the 5th Amendment :) #MuellerHearings
@RepValDemings is up and she is already finding that Mueller could not ask all his questions- Mueller “can’t get into” Trump’s credibility :) :)
Mueller “trump did not answer follow up questions” OH THANK YOU she is on @wikileaks - Mueller can’t discuss an ongoing case
OOOH @RepValDemings got Mueller to say Trump was “generally” NOT TRUTHFUL #MuellerDay
Mueller “not going to speak to” Trump’s taxes and finances - this is the Trump family indictment for money laundering at SDNY by the way patribotics.blog/2019/03/07/don…
THE FBI ARE CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING IT MUELLER SAYS patribotics.blog/2019/04/23/did… #MuellerHearing
@AdamSchiff will go last. Here’s hoping he asks about ongoing investigations- Mueller said FBI are still investigating
Schiff very good on the blackmail risk for @realDonaldTrump and co
The biggest blows were landed by the House Judiciary Committee. @RepAdamSchiff can investigate but it is time to Impeach Trump. Thanks to all Dems for what they gleaned here from Mueller. There was a hell of a lot.
