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.
WOW: John Durham is Reportedly Dropping Russia-Gate Investigation to Appease Biden ‘Administration’
Durham’s probe ends as an empty flop.
U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly giving up on the Russia-gate investigation, as he is too scared to delve into the truth now that Biden has been announced as president-elect by the globalists.
Thus far, Durham’s investigation has been a huge bust. His work has only resulted in the prosecution of one individual – former FBI Attorney Kevin Clinesmith – for making or using “any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry.”
Outside of this nobody, there have been no prosecutions that have resulted from Durham’s Russia-gate investigation despite the laundry list of evidence showing wrongdoing.
Sean Davis of The Federalist has reported that the investigation is over. Durham is apparently quitting because of cowardice.

Big League Politics has reported on Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch blowing the whistle on Durham’s failure to do his job and investigate what was arguably the biggest crime in U.S. history prior to the vote steal:
Trump supporters are waiting with baited breath for U.S. Attorney John Durham to come out with his explosive findings in regards to his investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion probe against President Trump.
According to Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton, Trump supporters are getting taken for a ride. Fitton said during a recent appearance on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that Barr and Durham are making no progress on investigating what very well may be the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. history.
“You know, my concern is it’s been, what, sixteen-plus months since Durham was appointed and only now is he questioning Mr. Brennan,” Fitton said.
Fitton said that he is inclined to believe disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan when he says that he is not a person of interest in Durham’s investigation.
“I don’t see grand juries operating. I don’t see a bunch of witnesses coming in. I don’t see lawyers complaining about their clients being brought in before Durham,” Fitton said.
He said that the Mueller investigation was run much more thoroughly than Durham’s so-called investigation, the goal of which appears to be protecting the deep state.
“You know when the government is being pressure on witnesses and subjects and that is not evident here,” Fitton said, adding that it is his opinion that Durham is “not doing the work” needed to bring deep state criminals to justice.
Fitton did not object to Dobbs’ characterization that he is calling the Durham a “sham.”
“I’ll have to tell you. I’m a little concerned that the FBI is no longer an investigative agency because if this is the way they operate, it’s going to take them decades to deal with anything of real complexity,” Dobbs said.
It seems that Durham, and his boss Attorney General Bill Barr, were just deep state hacks all along. So much for “Trust the Plan,” huh?
