As a sympathetic Democrat in Congress attempted to endear former special counsel Robert Mueller to the American people, he inadvertently revealed that Mueller does not even remember which president appointed him as United States Attorney for Massachusetts.
When Sen. Greg Stanton (D-AZ) attempted to give Mueller the opportunity to stress his long service to the United States during his congressional testimony, Mueller revealed that his memory is so poor he does not even remember which president appointed him to one of the highest offices he held.
“Director Mueller, I’m disappointed that some have questioned your motives throughout this process, and I want to take a moment to remind the American people of who you are, and your exemplary service to our country,” said Stanton. “Which president appointed you to become the United States attorney for Massachusetts?”
Mueller stammered before responding, “Which senator?”
This prompted Stanton to clarify his question, reminding Mueller he is asking which president gave him the prestigious appointment.
“Oh, which president,” said Mueller, sighing heavily. “I think that was President Bush.”
Confused, Stanton corrected Mueller, “Um, according to my notes, it was President Ronald Reagan who had the honor to do so.”
Mueller attempted to make light of his confusion, laughing and saying “Oh, my mistake.”
Stanton: which Pres appointed you?
Mueller: which Senator?
Stanton: which President?
Mueller: oh which President (laughs) I think that was Pres Bush
Stanton: according to my notes that was President Reagan
Mueller: oh my mistake

Mueller has been roundly mocked by Republicans for his poor memory, speaking skills, and overall disappointing performance before Congress. Meanwhile, Democrats seem to be dismayed that he has thus far been unable to play into their narrative of Russian meddling in President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, or their desire to prove that the president obstructed justice.
Former FBI special counsel Robert Mueller, who has been painted as a crusader for justice by the Democrat Party and the fake news media, could not even answer basic questions about the contents of his own report during a Congressional hearing today that is still ongoing.
While getting questioned by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) in the House Judiciary Committee, Mueller displayed ignorance about the details of his report.
“Papadopoulos tells a diplomat, ‘Russians have dirt on Clinton.’ Diplomat tells the FBI. What I’m wondering is, who told Papadopoulos? How’d he find out?” Jordan asked Mueller.
“I can’t into the evidentiary findings,” Mueller stammered.
President Trump is celebrating the pathetic testimony on Twitter, publicly thanking Democrats for forcing the farce.
“I would like to thank the Democrats for holding this morning’s hearing,” wrote President Trump. “Now, after 3 hours, Robert Mueller has to subject himself to #ShiftySchiff – an Embarrassment to our Country!”

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment
Cuomo has refused to resign.
A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.
Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.
“Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”
Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.
Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
