This Treasonous fraud desrerves his own thread - shouldn't be spoken of in the same breath as President Trump.

How old is he? ... looking about 104 and struggling big time!Dead

He should have just redacted all the fake news innuendo, stuck to the facts and written a three line report; 

"Trump is 100% Exonerated.

No collusion, no obstruction.

You win."

This is just pathetic and cringeworthy - only serving to ruin his legacy.Ouch
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

Jordan asked if Mifsud lied to special counsel investigators as well.

"I can't get into that," Mueller said.

"Did you interview Mifsud?" Jordan asked.

"I can't get into that," Mueller said.

Jordan asked if Mifsud was connected to any foreign intelligence agencies.

"I can't get into that," Mueller said again. "Can't get into that."

"Lot of things you can't get into," Jordan said.

Jordan implied there was bias behind Mueller's decision to indict 13 Russians "no one's ever heard of" and figures allied with Trump for making false statements – such as Papadopoulos and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort – but not to charge Mifsud.

Back to the racism card. Yawn.

We now know for sure Jordan hasn't read the Report, otherwise he would have seen this, which stuck out like dogs balls to anyone actually paying attention

“Mifsud told the press that he spoke to the FBI while in Washington in February 2017. While the FBI has not confirmed Mifsud’s statement, he is listed as a featured speaker at the February 2017 national meeting of Global Ties—an event sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. Mifsud then returned home to Europe“


So why all the “ I can’t get into that” nonsense

Simples Shrunkie, Mifsud is still an ongoing investigation by both FBI and Inspector General inquiries.

Mueller was not allowed to answer any questions regarding ongoing investigations by DOJ order.

Jordan and the others know that and kept asking him questions that he was not allowed to answer by order of Barr.

Very dishonest.

Nice of him to confirm what we already knew - there was no exoneration at all. Laughable to suggest there was. But seriously, that was embarrassing. The guy was dreadful. He’s ready for the retirement home.

Sad that performance is judged over substance in this bizarre Trump show. He was a very reluctant witness, had said he didn't want to be there, was threatened by his boss and knew he was to be relentlessly attacked by people only interested in blowing up the process, not seeking answers.

He warmed up in the second hearing where he wasn't being attacked nearly as much and was instructing on Russian interference, the heart of the inquiry but something Republicans failed to ask a single question on. Not Russia curious at all because that makes Traitor Trump mad because it de-legitimizes his illegitimate Presidency

One section of Republican questioning I found interesting that hasn't been reported on much so far in the initial flood of analysis and commentary, the questioning, angry at times on the prosecutio/declination decisions and the Special Counsel regulations.

This, I believe will become the replacement for the NO COLLUSION/NO OBSTRUCTION/TOTAL EXONERATION mantra that was blown up last night.

Wonder whether Republicans will go after Mueller for this? Mueller had already said that Trump, Trump jr and others were part of ongoing investigations regarding Wikileaks, Stone and Assange, so he shouldn't have been commenting.


Schiff: “I gather you believe knowingly accepting foreign assistance during a presidential campaign is an unethical thing to do.” Mueller: “And a crime in given circumstances."

I thought the same thing. Its clearly taken a toll. Looks like a man that is holding guilt.
Probably a stack of pressure from the left. Became a stressed puppet.

Looks like he has been drinking very very heavily and most likely pills too.
Actually quite sad at the end of the day.
Tipping he wished he just played golf on a Trump course instead.

Can someone help me out on why anyone thought this hearing would have any point? He'd already made it clear that his report spoke for him, and literally 15 mins into it he'd made it clear that he couldn't and wouldn't comment beyond that. Why continue?

I guess the anti-trumpers were just hoping for some "sound bites" and "optics", as people say today. Appeals to emotion over facts/ law/ truth. Typically elitist, condescending attitude. They hoped the "movie would be better than the book." The "book" (particularly the bloated gossip column of part 2) was a bore, apart from the Russia stuff, but the "movie" was bloody awful. Mueller went from hero to zero because of his frayed nerves. Dare I say it reminded me of the televised Pell trial and the hopeless stammering, uninformed prosecutor. At time Mueller didn't even seem to know his own report. It would be interesting to see if the writing style is consistent throughout, bit by bit. It seemed very inconsistent to me when I read it - part sober legal analysis and part tabloid sensationalism.

If the Democrats want to win the next election, they need to forget this bulls@#t, and actually come up with some innovative policies, I know that is a novel idea, but if they continue to concentrate on this non starter of an issue, they could have the most beloved American to ever exist, they would still not win!

It is a non issue, because nothing will happen before he leaves office.

This investigation is one of the things that makes people believe Trump when he says fake news. Either this guy found something, or he did not. If he found something which could be termed collaboration with the Russians, then just tell the public what it is.

The Democrats are just shooting themselves in the foot and handing another four years to The Donald, by continuing this fishing expedition, and in the end they will hook themselves, and catch nothing.    
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

Democrats are very busy passing lots of bills. They have a very large agenda, but Senate Majority leader McConnell refuses to look at anything at all. Over 100 bills sent to him he refuses to look at. 

Just today following Mueller's testimony on the dire threat to elections again next year, 2 election security bills were sent to him, he vetoed both without looking at them.

Why is it so obvious to everyone else?

This seems to be the theme throughout the western world ... the progressive Socialist political class of the left - and their salivating sycophantic media mates - just think that people are stupid.

Will they ever have the humility to work it out?Dead

Years of garbage, summed up perfectly in just one sentence.

While all this was going on, Trump helped bond East Europe.
Trump is an absolute master at this.
He really is an Emperor.
Emperors, historically, are always under-estimated.
They bat a simple game, with simple words, but play a master class game with very very strong agendas.
Trump is ready to go at The Federal Reserve banking empire now.

Really? You clearly didn't watch it.

For the rusted on 35-38% of brain-dead Trumpers it confirmed what Donald's gaslighting and Russian disinformation has been telling them.Stay strong and stay white, 2043 is coming.

Clintons LOL
