Congressman Ted Lieu Claims Somebody ‘Got To’ Robert Mueller

By Rusty Weiss and Jeff Dunetz

Democrat Representative Ted Lieu (CA) tossed out a wild conspiracy theory during an interview on CNN, suggesting somebody “got to” Robert Mueller during his testimony and killed his big ‘gotcha moment’ against the President.

Lieu, who promised his rabid liberal base that “minds may be blown” during the testimony, was inadvertently an integral part in the Democrats messaging about obstruction of justice falling apart.

During the morning session of the former special counsel’s testimony, he was a hero, getting Mueller to agree that his office didn’t charge the President with obstruction because of Department of Justice policies against indicting sitting presidents.

In the afternoon, it all came crumbling down. Mueller began the new session by correcting the record.

That’s when Ted Lieu got his tinfoil hat. Appearing on Anderson Cooper 360, Lieu actually suggested Mueller, who had been a star for the resistance party for two years, had been compromised.

This was wild. Well, wild and an unfortunate attempt at trying to explain to your supporters how you managed to botch a ‘gotcha moment’ against the President you’re so desperately trying to take down.

“Mueller agreed that the OLC opinion prevented a sitting president from being indicted,” Lieu explained to host Wolf Blitzer. “And then the republican member after me asked him a series of questions to try to get him to walk it back, and he did not do that.”

“Then it wasn’t until there was a recess in the Intel Committee that he started to walk some of that back,” he continued. “I don’t know who got to him. I don’t know who talked to him, but that was very odd what he did.”

Blitzer gave him an opportunity to walk back his own assertion that Mueller had been strong-armed by somebody. GASP! Maybe the Russians? Perhaps there were threatening Zombies in the room Mueller hung out in between hearings. Or maybe it was poltergeists.

Since his correction simply stated what he already wrote in his report, It is most likely that Mueller was visited by the truth fairy.

Honestly, if anyone got to Mueller, it’d be Ted’s party who held mock hearings the day before to practice for the big congressional hearing. And it worked because after Mueller’s testimony most Americans mocked the real hearings.

The official campaign arm of the resistance party, meanwhile, ignored Mueller’s correction and pushed the narrative that Mueller testified he would charge President Trump with obstruction if he weren’t president.

The media tried to as well, with Trump swatting them down in epic fashion.

Lieu has also spread other conspiracy theories about Trump and Russia, including an assertion that the widely debunked Steele dossier “has lots of truth.” The only thing truthful one could say about the Steele dossier is that it used the alphabet and punctuation.

Do you think the Democrats will ever awaken from this Russia nightmare that keeps playing in their feeble little minds over and over again? It’s doubtful because if they moved away from the Russia hoax, they would need to find something to occupy their time—like help fix America’s problems.

DELUSIONAL NADLER: MUELLER TESTIMONY ‘BROKE THE LIE’ ON COLLUSION & OBSTRUCTION

Delusional Nadler: Mueller Testimony 'Broke the Lie' On Collusion & Obstruction

In reality, Mueller said he could not determine whether Trump committed ANY crimes

The Hill – JULY 28, 2019

House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Sunday that former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony last week “broke the lie” that Mueller’s report cleared President Trump of collusion or obstruction of justice.

“I think it was very important that he testified … he broke the lie that the president and the attorney general have been saying to the American people,” Nadler said on ABC’s “This Week” when asked by George Stephanopoulos if the testimony, during which Mueller repeatedly referred back to information already contained in his report, was worth the trouble.

“Since his report was issued, the president and the attorney general misrepresented that report, lied to the American people about it, said that the report found no collusion, no obstruction and totally exonerated the president,” Nadler told Stephanopoulos.

“All those three statements are lies [and] it was very important for Mueller to get up there and say just that,” he added. “It’s very important that that information get out to the American people and we can now build on that.”

Robert Mueller Squirms and Stammers Under Intense Questioning from Matt Gaetz

Gaetz made Mueller squirm while questioning him about Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele.

By Shane Trejo

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) blasted former FBI special investigator Robert Mueller during a Congressional hearing today before the House Judiciary Committee regarding Mueller’s unwillingness to address Fusion FPS and their dubious Christopher Steele dossier.

“Director Mueller, can you state with confidence that the Steele dossier was not part of Russia’s disinformation campaign?” Gaetz asked Mueller.

“Uhh ahh, I said, eeh uhh, in my opening statement, ehh uhh, that, uhh, part of the, ehh uhh, building of the case was predated me by at least ten months,” Mueller responded, struggling to spit out a coherent sentence.

“Yeah, and Paul Manafort’s alleged crimes regarding tax evasion predated you, and you had no problem charging him,” Gaetz retorted.

The pro-Trump legislator was just getting warmed up in taking Mueller to task for how he conducted his biased witch hunt.

“As a matter of fact, this Steele dossier predated the Attorney General, and he didn’t have any problem answering the question. When Sen. Cornyn asked the Attorney General the exact question I asked you, Director, the Attorney General said, and I’m quoting, ‘No, I can’t state that with confidence, and that’s one of the areas I’m reviewing. I’m concerned about it, and I don’t think it’s entirely speculative,’” Gaetz told Mueller.

“Now if something is not entirely speculative, then it must have some factual basis, but you identify no factual basis regarding the dossier or the possibility that it was apart of the Russia disinformation campaign,” he added.

Gaetz then began to delve into the details regarding the Steele dossier, which was produced by Fusion GPS via the law firm Perkins Coie funded with cash from the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and Democratic National Committee.

“Steele reported to the FBI that senior Russian foreign ministry figures, along with other Russians, told him that there was, and I’m quoting from the Steele dossier, ‘extensive evidence of conspiracy between the Trump campaign team and the Kremlin,’” Gaetz said.

“So here’s my question, did Russians really tell that to Christopher Steele or did he just make it all up and was he just lying to the FBI?” Gaetz asked Mueller.

Mueller resorted to his usual defense throughout the day’s questioning, in order to slither out of having to provide a direct answer.

“That’s beyond my purview,” Mueller responded.

Gaetz was not impressed by Mueller’s weasel tactics, and continued to drill him with the facts.

“No, it is exactly your purview, Director Mueller, and here’s why,” Gaetz said. “Only one of two things is possible, right, either, Steele made this whole thing up, and there were never any Russians telling him of this vast criminal conspiracy that you didn’t find, or Russians lied to Steele.”

“Now, if Russians were lying to Steele to undermine our confidence in our duly elected President, that would seem to be precisely your purview because you stated in your opening that the organizing principle was to fully and thoroughly investigate Russia’s interference, but you weren’t interested in whether or not Russians were interfering through Christopher Steele,” he added.

Gaetz’s smack down of Mueller can be viewed in full here:

Mueller’s persistent confusion and inability to answer basic questions has many speculating that he was merely a figurehead, and was never responsible for the contents of his own report.

Jack Posobiec of One America News Network contends that the Mueller report was written by Department of Justice attorney Andrew Weissman, a member of Mueller’s team who has extensive ties to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Today has to be seen as a major victory for Republicans, led by Gaetz, who can now point to Mueller’s muddled testimony as more evidence that his investigation against President Trump regarding Russian collusion was a biased witch hunt.
