The swamp is being replenished as Dems excitedly wait for the possible testimony of Robert Mueller before Congress. Last week, Lindsey Graham surprised almost everyone by publicly inviting former special counsel Mueller to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to clear up issues about whether he was truly disappointed in Attorney General William Barr’s characterization of his Russia Collusion investigation.
At this point, it is unknown if Mueller will accept the invitation to appear before Congress, whether it be in the Senate or the House.
The possibility has tongues wagging in the capital and Democrats are wiggling in their seats in hopes they’ll have the chance to interrogate Mueller. Meanwhile, they desperately grasp what is hopefully the last chance they have to extend the ridiculous collusion hoax … now in its third year.
Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters this week that Mueller’s testimony is vital, since the left wants to determine what dissatisfaction he has with Barr’s summary assessment of Mueller’s 448-page report. “I hope that he is desirous of testifying so that he can, from his perspective, talk to the American people, and to the representatives of the American people, on what his views are,” Hoyer said. “Clearly, this letter indicates that they are not being represented by Attorney General Barr. This is a two-year effort, a little short of that, (and a) major investment. I think the American people are justified in hearing his view as to what he found and the interpretation he put on it.”
“Mueller has to testify,” said Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna, according to a report in The Hill. “I think that will be determinative. No one in this country, no one in this body, has more credibility than Bob Mueller. He’s the one person who’s been circumspect. He’s showed humility. I think the American people are going to hear him and make a determination.”
Would it surprise anyone if Mueller comes in and dashes the hopes and expectations of the left, and they change their minds about Mueller’s reliability?
“At this point, I think we need to hear directly from the special counsel about his report and about his findings,” Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal commented to reporters on Thursday. “Clearly, he felt troubled enough by what Attorney General Barr did and said that he wrote not one but two letters to the attorney general.”
During Barr’s testimony before the Senate last week, he said that he spoke to Mueller by phone after receiving his letter that said Barr’s summary of the investigation report “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the special counsel conclusions and created “public confusion.”
“I asked him if he was suggesting that the March 24 letter was inaccurate, and he said no but that the press reporting had been inaccurate,” Barr said.
One thing sure to be asked of Mueller in testimony would be why he did not make a determination regarding potential obstruction by the President, and what his opinion on the matter is.
Barr has repeatedly said that he has no objections to Mueller testifying.
Negotiations are reportedly underway with Mueller to set-up the parameters for his testimony.
Meanwhile, “DaNang” Dick Blumenthal is among the leftists anxious to grill Mueller. Watch his response to The Hill regarding what he would ask him …
