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.
FBI Director Christopher Wray Blames Sovereign Citizens, Militias for Summer’s BLM/ANTIFA Riots
The FBI has become a joke.
FBI Director Christopher Wray blamed sovereign citizen movements and militias for the summer’s unprecedented and historical riots, in which almost 30 Americans were killed, 700 law enforcement officers were injured, and 14,000 people were arrested.
Wray was responding to a question in a Tuesday hearing posed by Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz was inquiring as to the FBI’s plan to deter and prevent mob-style riot crime in American cities, with Wray’s answers seeming to suggest the agency has no real plan to avoid a repeat of the experiences of summer 2020 later this year.
In reality, the summer’s riots are almost entirely the fault of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. BLM engaged in an onslaught of destruction targeting small businesses and powerless members of American communities, after the controversial death of George Floyd.
Wray made a token allusion to “anarchist” extremism, before citing sovereign citizens and militias for BLM/ANTIFA’s violence.
“A lot of that activity fell in what we would categorize as anti-government, anti-authority violent extremism. Some of it is anarchist, violent extremism; some of it is militia violent extremism. Some of it might even be sovereign citizen violent extremism.“
Wray made no reference to the criminal Black Lives Matter riot movement, or the street terror cult known as ANTIFA. He did reference a Patriot Prayer demonstrator who was shot and killed by an ANTIFA militant in Portland.
With Biden’s ascension to the Presidential Throne, Democrats are chomping at the bit at the prospect of using powerful and unaccountable federal law enforcement agencies to gin up bogus accusations and surveillance of patriotic Donald Trump supporters and America First advocates. Don’t expect the FBI to arrive on the scene if ANTIFA/BLM crime explodes in the summer- unless, of course, a so-called “extremist” can be found on the scene waiving an American flag.
