Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh thinks Robert Mueller’s reasons for not wanting to testify before Congress are pretty simple.
The former special counsel leading the Trump-Russia investigation simply has “nothing to tell,” Limbaugh told his radio audience Friday, adding that he likely doesn’t want Democrats to be “mad at him” as well.
“The bottom line here is that Mueller doesn’t want to, and the media is beside itself because they think they’re on Mueller’s team — and Congress, they think they’re on Mueller’s team. They’re asking for the coach to come up and give them the pep talk,” he said on “The Rush Limbaugh Show” Friday.
Democrats desperate to get Mueller before Congress in the hopes of finding something – anything – they can use against President Trump have been disappointed. Their plans to question the special counsel about his 448-page report on Russian election interference and Trump’s potential obstruction of justice have not materialized as Mueller has not indicated he will head to Capitol Hill any time soon, if at all.

“They want Mueller to come and finally tell ’em that there was collusion and that he knew it, that Barr will not let him say so, and Trump won’t let him say so! They want that, and Mueller doesn’t want to go talk to the team,” Limbaugh said during his radio show.
“If Mueller doesn’t want to talk, do you know what it means? It means he’s got nothing to tell ’em that he knows they’re gonna want to hear. If Mueller had things to tell them that they wanted to hear, he would have been there by now,” he added, noting that even if Mueller does testify, Democrats and critics will be “disappointed and mad” as there won’t be anything in his testimony to satisfy them.
“All Mueller knows is that if he goes up there and talks to ’em, they’re gonna be disappointed and mad at him. He doesn’t want them mad at him, and the press and all these Democrats on Capitol Hill, they think that Mueller should know that they’re on his team. See, they’re convinced that Mueller has got more information than Barr has released, that Mueller has more information than what’s in the report,” Limbaugh continued.
Attorney General Bill Barr confirmed this week that he has no objection to Mueller appearing before the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee.
“It’s Bob’s call whether he wants to testify,” Barr told The Wall Street Journal, repeating his position of not preventing Mueller from testifying.
Trump objected to the idea and tweeted earlier this month that the special counsel “should not testify.”
After spending more than $35,000,000 over a two year period, interviewing 500 people, using 18 Trump Hating Angry Democrats & 49 FBI Agents – all culminating in a more than 400 page Report showing NO COLLUSION – why would the Democrats in Congress now need Robert Mueller…….

….to testify. Are they looking for a redo because they hated seeing the strong NO COLLUSION conclusion? There was no crime, except on the other side (incredibly not covered in the Report), and NO OBSTRUCTION. Bob Mueller should not testify. No redos for the Dems!

Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler requested that Mueller testify by May 23 in a letter to the Justice Department last month, and told CNN, “We will subpoena him if we have to.”
“Bob Mueller’s like anybody else in that town: ‘Give me a really good puff piece in the Washington Post and I’ll do anything for you,'” Limbaugh said Friday. “If he thought there was a great Washington Post Style section puff piece waiting, he would have been up there by now. But Mueller knows he doesn’t have anything to tell them along the lines of what they want to hear.”
“They’re convinced that Mueller has got more information than Barr has released, that Mueller has more information than what’s in the report. And Mueller is essentially saying, ‘I don’t got nothing, I never had anything, and I’m not gonna come up and tell you that.’ So they’re very, very depressed,” Limbaugh said.
