Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) blasted former FBI special investigator Robert Mueller during a Congressional hearing today before the House Judiciary Committee regarding Mueller’s unwillingness to address Fusion FPS and their dubious Christopher Steele dossier.
“Director Mueller, can you state with confidence that the Steele dossier was not part of Russia’s disinformation campaign?” Gaetz asked Mueller.
“Uhh ahh, I said, eeh uhh, in my opening statement, ehh uhh, that, uhh, part of the, ehh uhh, building of the case was predated me by at least ten months,” Mueller responded, struggling to spit out a coherent sentence.
“Yeah, and Paul Manafort’s alleged crimes regarding tax evasion predated you, and you had no problem charging him,” Gaetz retorted.
The pro-Trump legislator was just getting warmed up in taking Mueller to task for how he conducted his biased witch hunt.
“As a matter of fact, this Steele dossier predated the Attorney General, and he didn’t have any problem answering the question. When Sen. Cornyn asked the Attorney General the exact question I asked you, Director, the Attorney General said, and I’m quoting, ‘No, I can’t state that with confidence, and that’s one of the areas I’m reviewing. I’m concerned about it, and I don’t think it’s entirely speculative,'” Gaetz told Mueller.
“Now if something is not entirely speculative, then it must have some factual basis, but you identify no factual basis regarding the dossier or the possibility that it was apart of the Russia disinformation campaign,” he added.
Gaetz then began to delve into the details regarding the Steele dossier, which was produced by Fusion GPS via the law firm Perkins Coie funded with cash from the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and Democratic National Committee.
“Steele reported to the FBI that senior Russian foreign ministry figures, along with other Russians, told him that there was, and I’m quoting from the Steele dossier, ‘extensive evidence of conspiracy between the Trump campaign team and the Kremlin,'” Gaetz said.
“So here’s my question, did Russians really tell that to Christopher Steele or did he just make it all up and was he just lying to the FBI?” Gaetz asked Mueller.
Mueller resorted to his usual defense throughout the day’s questioning, in order to slither out of having to provide a direct answer.
“That’s beyond my purview,” Mueller responded.
Gaetz was not impressed by Mueller’s weasel tactics, and continued to drill him with the facts.
“No, it is exactly your purview, Director Mueller, and here’s why,” Gaetz said. “Only one of two things is possible, right, either, Steele made this whole thing up, and there were never any Russians telling him of this vast criminal conspiracy that you didn’t find, or Russians lied to Steele.”
“Now, if Russians were lying to Steele to undermine our confidence in our duly elected President, that would seem to be precisely your purview because you stated in your opening that the organizing principle was to fully and thoroughly investigate Russia’s interference, but you weren’t interested in whether or not Russians were interfering through Christopher Steele,” he added.
Gaetz’s smack down of Mueller can be viewed in full here:
.@mattgaetz handing Mueller his butt…
Gaetz: Can you state that the Steele dossier wasn’t Russian disinformation?
Mueller: Dossier is before my time.
Gaetz: So were Manafort’s crimes. You charged him.
Mueller: Not my purview.
Gaetz: IT IS IN YOUR REPORT! pic.twitter.com/mSZzi4Bu3o

Mueller’s persistent confusion and inability to answer basic questions has many speculating that he was merely a figurehead, and was never responsible for the contents of his own report.
Jack Posobiec of One America News Network contends that the Mueller report was written by Department of Justice attorney Andrew Weissman, a member of Mueller’s team who has extensive ties to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Remember, folks. Weissman was involved with the dossier and Bruce Ohr in 2016
Weissman was talking about bringing in Mueller even before Comey was fired
Mueller came into all of this rather late in the game as a figurehead and that’s never been more obvious than today

Today has to be seen as a major victory for Republicans, led by Gaetz, who can now point to Mueller’s muddled testimony as more evidence that his investigation against President Trump regarding Russian collusion was a biased witch hunt.

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.
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.
