Ratcliffe: ‘Democrats Paid a Heavy Price’; Hearing Showed Mueller Was Not in Charge By Susan Jones for CNS News
GNN Note – If you missed what happened yesterday with the Mueller Report coming to life – WOW! – you missed one of the greatest slow motion train wrecks in political history. – click here for the coverage provided by our sister site.
Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller said he did not want to testify before Congress, and on Wednesday, it showed.
Mueller gave terse, one-word answers to many questions; refused to answer many questions; asked for questions to be repeated; and at times seemed not to know what was in the report that we have come to know as the “Mueller report.”
President Trump’s supporters pointed to Mueller’s performance as a reason to believe he had less to do with the Trump-Russia investigation than the Democrat lawyers he hired to help him.
“You know, sometimes the book is better than the movie,” Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.
“And the Democrats paid a heavy price by dragging a reluctant Robert Mueller, who was not familiar with the terms of his own report, and that was on display very clearly and at times, very painfully, before the American people yesterday. The big winner yesterday was Donald Trump because impeachment is dead,” Ratcliffe said.
At one point, Mueller admitted he was “not familiar” with Fusion GPS, the company paid by the Democrat National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to produce dirt (the Steele dossier) on Donald Trump during the campaign.
