Mueller Deflected Questions a Shocking 198 Times While Testifying Before Congress

At times, it seemed the special investigator didn’t even know where he was.

Former FBI special investigator Robert Mueller dashed the hopes of Democrats hoping for impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump today, as he looked confused and disheveled while testifying before two different House committees.

According to the estimate by the fake news, Mueller deflected direct questioning on 198 separate occasions as he found himself frequently at a loss when addressing basic facts in the report that he allegedly wrote while addressing Congressional lawmakers.

One deflection occurred when Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) asked Mueller: “So President Trump’s efforts to exert undue influence over your investigation intensified after the president became aware that he personally was being investigated?”

Mueller responded by saying, “I stick with the language that’s in front of you.”

Mueller gave a similar non-answer when addressing Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) after he asked, “Isn’t it true the evidence did not establish that the president or those close to him were involved in the charged Russian computer hacking or active measure conspiracies or that the president otherwise had unlawful relationships with any Russian official, Volume 2, page 76? Correct?”

The former special investigator’s noncommittal response was as follows: “I will leave the answer to our report.”

Mueller’s response to Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) was even more puzzling and served as an indicator that the tenured FBI spook may not have understood what was really going on.

“We went through and we counted 126 contacts between Russians or their agents and Trump campaign officials or their associates. So, would that sound about right?” she asked.

“I can’t say. I understand the statistic,” Mueller responded.

Mueller was particularly out to lunch on issues related to Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, Christopher Steele, and the opposition research that was likely used as the underlying basis for the entire Russian collusion investigation.

“One of the key players in the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting was Natalia Veselnitskaya, who you described in your report as a Russian attorney who advocated for the repeal of the Magnitsky Act. Veselnitskaya had been working with none other than Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS since at least early 2014. Are — are you aware of that?” Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) asked Mueller.

Mueller responded with one of his favorite excuses of the day to weasel out of giving direct answers: “Outside my purview.”

He also dodged the following question from Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX): “When you were appointed as special counsel, was President Trump’s firing of Comey something you anticipated investigating, potentially obstruction of justice?”

“I can’t get into that. That’s internal deliberations of the Justice Department,” Mueller responded.

Mueller was reticent about facing Congress for questioning, and it’s now clear as to why. He was unequipped to give testimony, and now Democrats are left with egg on their faces as the impeachment of Trump seems like a pipe dream.
