Wow.

Robert Mueller changing the job of a prosecutor from proving someone ‘Guilty beyond a reasonable doubt’ to ‘Not being able to exonerate someone accused of a crime.’

Dangerous and ridiculous.

It's a plum assignment, they said.

Let the staff do all the work and you take all the credit, they said.

Carrying over from the other thread, Mueller didnt expect a channel, they thought their word was gospel, every once in a while you have one enterprising atty likr our friend clarice, who challenges the judgement from on high, Sydney Powell In Arthur Anderson and the fellow Concord hired who was a veteran of the southern district of Florida (did he know about the Weinstein deal) and nee york

This will harm the Dems in the end. Absolutely nothing new will come of it.
Dems will have their self destructive biases confirmed and get some more MSM hysteria.
Normal people including many Independents will just grow sicker of their obsession.
That obsession is about as popular as their take on socialism, immigration, jihad, climate change and girls compelled to wax tranny nuts.

Captain Hate

Mueller always has been a disgrace. What wasn't so well known was that he was the consummate Deep State puppet/front man who looked the part and could read prepared remarks and appear to be a stellar G-man without pushback. Today the public sees him as the corrupt fraud he always has been. The senile stuttering-fuck act is a fraud.

This is your DOJ/FBI, folks. Burn it all down and sow the ground with salt.

CNN and MSNBC probably will cut the live feed of this continues.

Thanks TK. That is what I assumed would be Trump's reason for seeing him, but if Trump says Mueller was seeking the job? Maybe Mueller did make a play for it.

Employees just lie and take the days anyway. This just makes PTO accounting more painful for employers.

Under new legislation signed into law May 28 by Democratic Gov. Janet Mills, workers in Maine will now be able to accrue paid time off — and use it for whatever they wish. Maine is the 11th state to guarantee full-time workers paid sick leave, but the first to allow the time to be used for something other than personal illness.

Rep Jim Jordan is up now, and he's taken off his suit coat like he means business, and he's going over the details of that do-nothing meeting with the Russians.

Mueller: "I can't go into that."

Jordan: "Yes you can, because you wrote about it."

More, but I'm waiting for a Twitter video. This is a damning line of questions.

MissMarple2

As Jim Jordan begins questioning, the House goes into session and C-SPAN 1 cuts its coverage. It can be seen on C-SPAN3 if you can access it.

A poster on Twitter also noted that each democrat questioning gets a close-up, but when the GOP asks questions they do a long shot of the whole committee.

Perhaps it's because I'm partial to wrestlers, but I love Jordan!

“It is humbling to be honored in such a way by the National Wrestling Hall of Fame,” Jordan said. “Through the sport of wrestling, I learned lessons about hard work and discipline that I have carried with me throughout my life. I’ve been blessed to have the support of a loving family and great coaches throughout my life, but I am particularly thankful for my experience in Badger wrestling and what it has meant to me and so many others who have been a part of one of the best programs in history.”

IMO, there isn't a sport out there that requires as much hard work as wrestling does. It's a work ethic that follows you through life. I'm happy to say that my youngest learned that work ethic that wrestling teaches.

Cates is completely wrong on what Mueller said. Mueller told Gohmert that he was there to advise the President about the director position.

Actually Cates was 100% correct. Mueller clearly said he was not at that meeting as a candidate for the FBI Director job. Right after he said that Gohmert dropped the topic like a hot potato.

Brilliant from @Jim_Jordan. He asks why Joseph Misfud, the key DOJ witness who helped launch this garbage collusion conspiracy, lied 3 times but DIDN’T get charged—even as Mueller was charging people connected to Trump for lying.

Mueller refused to answer. Blatant conflict.

I'm not sure anyone could have done more to discredit Mueller's report and investigation than Mueller is doing right now. He can't answer simplec questions about his own investigation, fumbles answers about his own report, and seems utterly befuddled by what's happening.

In response to Gohmert's question about the meeting with Trump about the FBI Director job, Mueller's response was "Not as a candidate" at which point Gohmert dropped it like a hot potato and did not follow up.
