Wednesday’s Mueller testimony before congress was certainly the underwhelming political event of the year, especially for the left. Many were hoping to shed light on details and divestitures from the Mueller report that would enhance the Democrat’s case to impeach President Trump.
The end result couldn’t have been further from this. Robert Mueller’s testimony to questions by Democrat and Republican Congressmen was filled with things like “I’m not going to get into that” or “I don’t remember”. There were many awkward moments and many times when he couldn’t even keep the facts straight from his own extensive report on Russian collusion.
That report, Debbie Lesko cited, was a monumental waste of taxpayer money. Among many other Republicans who grilled Robert Mueller, such as Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, and Louie Gohmert, Debbie Lesko, Republican Representative from Arizona, was one of the lesser-known names. Nevertheless, she outperformed many of her peers at cross-examining and at times excoriating Robert Mueller for bias and inconsistencies in the 2 years long taxpayer burdensome investigation.
Debbie Lesko referenced an earlier question Mueller received where Rep Ted Lieu asked “is the reason you didn’t indict the President because of the OLC (Office of Legal Counsel) opinion? And you answered that is correct.
But that is not what you said in the report and it’s not what you told Attorney General Barr, and in fact in a joint statement that you released with the DOJ, on May 29th, after your press conference. Your office issued a joint statement with the Department of Justice that said the Attorney General has previously stated that the special counsel repeatedly affirmed that he was not saying that but for the OLC opinion he would have found the president obstructed justice.
The special counsel’s report in his statement today made clear that the office concluded it would not reach a determination one way or the other whether the president committed a crime. There is no conflict of interest between these statements, so Mr. Mueller, do you stand by your joint statement with DOJ that you issued on May 29th as you sit here today?”
“Uh, I would have to look at it more closer before I said I agreed with it.”
Lesko continues in the video to nail Mueller down on contradictions that he refused to address one way or another.
In one instance she asks him if he was ever fired as special counsel and before actually saying no, he started to say “not that I know of”
