Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finally appeared before Congress to testify on his written report on Trump/Russian “collusion”, we can now confirm what I and others said and wrote when the written report was released in April–this investigation has been a trumped-up (no pun intended) fraud from the beginning, and the Attorney General’s follow up investigation of the origins of this case must include the harshest possible accountability for the rogue agents of our government who perpetrated it. Mueller’s testimony performance was pathetic and I almost felt sorry for him in the way he bumbled through it, but it was clear in the first few minutes that his “not my purview” response to any inquiry involving the fraudulent origins of this case would amount to nothing less than a complete cover up to protect criminally rogue elements of the DOJ and FBI who were the actual miscreants behind the Russia-collusion hoax.
From the outset of this fiasco, the most insightful analysis of this case has come from Kimberly Strassel of The Wall Street Journal, who had this to say in her coverage of the Mueller appearance: “Mr. Mueller’s testimony this week put to rest any doubt that this sheltering was deliberate. In his opening statement he declared that he would not ‘address questions about the opening of the FBI’s Russia investigation, which occurred months before my appointment, or matters related to the so-called Steele Dossier’. The purpose of those omissions was obvious, as those two areas go to the heart of why the nation has been forced to endure years of collusion fantasy”.
Amen. Mr. Attorney General, the ball is now in your court. Do your job.
