UNREAL: Mueller Claims He is ‘Not Familiar’ with Democrat-Backed Firm Fusion GPS Referenced in His Report

Mueller refuses to answer basic questions about his own report.

Published

Former FBI special investigator Robert Mueller is getting grilled on Capitol Hill right now, appearing before the House Judiciary Committee for an Obstruction of Justice Investigation that was called to order by the Democrats.

It’s not going very well for Mueller, as the veteran deep state spook has been unwilling or unable to recite basic facts of his own report back to lawmakers.

At one point during the hearing, Mueller claimed he knew nothing about Fusion GPS and their operative, former British spy Christopher Steele. This was the firm that commissioned the dossier from Steele used as underlying basis for the Russian collusion investigation.

“When discussing the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, you reference ‘the firm that produced the Steele reporting.’ The name of that firm was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?” Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH) asked Mueller.

Mueller asked for details on where that information is found in his report as he thumbed through the massive document.

“Page 103. That’s correct- Volume II. When you talk about the firm that produced the Steele reporting, the name of the firm that produced that was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?” Chabot asked.

“I am not familiar with—with that, I—,” Mueller stammered.

“It was. It’s not a trick question. It was Fusion GPS,” Chabot replied.

Fusion GPS was contracted to compile opposition research through the law firm Perkins Coie, which was hired by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee. It was later completely discredited, although not before it was used to undermine Trump’s presidency.

Fusion GPS is explicitly mentioned on page 103 of the Mueller report where it is mentioned that a meeting between Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, Donald Trump Jr., former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner “might have been a setup by individuals working with the firm that produced the Steele reporting.”

Mueller opened today’s proceedings by giving some immediate excuses as to why his answers to specific questions from Republicans demanding answers would be subpar.

“It is unusual for a prosecutor to testify about a criminal investigation and, given my role as a prosecutor, there are reasons why my testimony will be limited,” Mueller said today.

“I am unable to answer questions about the FBI’s initial opening of the counterintelligence investigation,” Mueller added, claiming he would refuse to answer questions on “matters relating to the Steele dossier.”

He later gave the excuse: “Those matters are subject to review and any questions on that should be directed to the FBI or the Department of Justice.”

Although the hearing is still ongoing, it does not seem like Mueller will be able to say anything to regain his lost credibility as he appears to be unfamiliar with the basic contents of his own report.

Bill Barr Pushes Back Against Trump, Criticizes President’s Comments on Stone, Drops Case Against McCabe

The Attorney General appears to be protecting the deep state.

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr is asserting his independence and distancing himself from President Trump’s agenda, criticizing Trump’s comments about the Roger Stone case and dropping charges against disgraced former FBI spook Andrew McCabe.

“I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas.

“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody … whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board, or the president,” Barr said. “I’m gonna do what I think is right. And you know … I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.”

This came in response to President Trump calling out the deep state’s railroading of his long-time confidant Roger Stone.

Trump has also hammered McCabe, the disgraced former FBI Deputy Director, for his alleged leaking in order to drive the Russian collusion investigation that yielded no evidence that Trump and the Russians worked together. He also admitted lying to the FBI and apologized for it, according to a report from the New York Post.

Despite his foul behavior, Barr’s office announced today that the federal case against McCabe would be dropped.

“We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe,” wrote prosecutors J.P. Cooney and Molly Gaston at the behest of U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Tim Shea.

“Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the Government at this time, we consider the matter closed,” they added.

McCabe is gloating and playing the victim as a result of the dropped charges.

“I have to say that as glad as I am that the Justice Department and the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office finally decided to do the right thing today, it is an absolute disgrace that they took two years and put my family through this experience for two years before they finally drew the obvious conclusion and one they could have drawn a long, long time ago,” he said while appearing on CNN, where he is paid to spread deep state propaganda.

“At long last, justice has been done in this matter,” McCabe’s attorneys Michael Bromwich and David Schertler said in a statement. “We said at the outset of the criminal investigation, almost two years ago, that if the facts and the law determined the result, no charges would be brought. We are pleased that Andrew McCabe and his family can go on with their lives without this cloud hanging over them.”

Barr is making it clear that he is his own man, which is disconcerting considering his record of working under globalist former president George H.W. Bush. Barr also has said that dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. It doesn’t appear at the current Attorney General will be draining the swamp any time soon.
