Doug Collins: “Democrats want the work of Mueller, but don’t want to talk to Mueller”…

House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member, Doug Collins, points out how Jerry Nadler wants the “theater but doesn’t want the truth”.  Specifically highlighting how the Democrats in congress conspicuously don’t want to present Robert Mueller for testimony.

.

Jerry Nadler has not demanded testimony from presumed author of the special counsel report, Robert Mueller. It is likely the Judiciary Committee’s lack of interest surrounds the fact they know Mueller was a figurehead with no substantive control over the small group led by Andrew Weissmann. The special counsel probe, with sunlight upon Mueller, would be a risk to Nadler.

    Watched it…Collins was Collins as usual, but the best part of show was Nadler’s expressions…must suck to be him. They are working themselves into an impeacment situation. To Nancy’s peril. And the chicken showed up again.

    Good times. Good times.

      Collins keeps referring to Mueller as the author of the report but there seems to be a consensus that Weissman wrote it. Maybe Collins should subpoena Weissman. How would that work out for Nadler?

            This is illuminating . Explains why Nadless keeps cutting Pubbies mikes.
            And why he desperately wanted his staff (lawyers) to be grilling Barr.
            He and his crew of ‘fence posts’ are nothing but a bunch of former slip and fall failed litigators. Dumber then a box of rocks. So of course he doesn’t want MuellEAR on the stand. The freedom caucus might expose his puppet role and other “conflicts ” he has.
            Pres Trump has mentioned those frequently. I believe this is an appetizer before the declass main course. Of which there will be many dishes to feast on.

          Not so sure about that after reading the released testimony of the Deputy Assistant General of the FBI. At one point she was asked just who in the sign-off process for FISA warrants actually reads the darn hings. Very shaky and apparently the top guys and down a few levels just sign off. Comey had it down to 20 minutes for a stack of 20 or so separate warrants. They have a very convoluted system but what it does is allow most oil the signatories to escape responsibility.

          Mueller therefore I suspect used that same system while he was Special Counsel. It’s an official looking but waste-of-time system that employs people who don’t seem to do much for a living and as a result take no responsibility.

      First time I’ve read this and totally agree. I think there are subtle hints pointing that direction. I think it may be the real reason Barr is basically ignoring Mueller, avoiding and delicately side-stepping obvious “tensions.” I don’t think he’s just dancing around because of a long friendship. I think he knows Mueller doesn’t have all of his faculties and doesn’t see anything to be gained in putting him in the hot seat. Yes, he played the figurehead role; but if he’s mentally deteriorating, it’s understandable Barr wouldn’t see much point in laying everything at his feet.

      Clearly at least Mueller is getting advice that is in alignment with Democrat objectives.

      If Mueller were working for Trump, as it has been claimed, then Mueller would be begging to testify.

      Mueller has to be aware that at the very least he’s a central figurehead of a circus act that is based on a fake premise, with the borderline-seditious goal of removing the President.

      Ultimately I believe Mueller’s testimony is largely irrelevant and ultimately unnecessary due to the testimony that we already have from the small-group plotters, who ultimately created the predicate for Mueller’s investigation.

      Andrew Weissmann is a member of the small group (under Bruce Ohr, from the DOJ) and was appointed to the Special Counsel. That’s all anyone needs to know.

    As far as I’m concerned, this entire situation is a testament to the wisdom of our British friends, who built into their government the concept of a “Vote of No Confidence.” With this, they are actually able to Fire(!) their entire Parliament, and to replace it within two weeks.

    Today, I am watching Members of Congress who simply are no longer “working for ME.” They are lost in their respective political turf-wars. Even within a single Committee – by the way, a profoundly important Committee – I see two gentlemen who sit within twelve feet of one another who are “working for themselves, and not for ME.”

    I believe that the American people have long recognized that their Government was no longer “working for them,” and that this is precisely why they “seized the day” when Donald Trump – for the very first(!) time in American history – provided them with an alternative to “the usual.” Regardless of what you think about “the man himself,” I still think … “what an AMERICAN thing to do!”

    But still we have “career politicians” who just don’t “get it.” People who can consider themselves to be “enemies” when they work ten feet apart. People who consider themselves to be “enemies” when, in fact, both of them “work for ME.”

    Pelosi has two BIG problems right now.

    1. Nadler and his soon to be 2 contempt resolutions (Barr and McGahn). She knows these are both legally meritless. If she brings them up to the full House for a vote, they will pass but then get quashed by the courts, exposing Dems as both stupid and weak. If she were to go the Schiff ‘inherent contempt’ route (unused by the House since 1917 for good reason), the TDS politics becomes even more exposed.

    2. Growing demand for impeachment. AOC today. Pelosi knows that, unlike the Clinton impeachment circus, there are no plausibly valid grounds. A purely political impeachment might satisfy the Dem base, but it would send Trumplicans and independents into election overdrive. For example, a Michigan state legislator has already stepped up to primary Amash following censure from his own Freedom Caucus.

    A sign of desperation? First, HRC went all in on her crime machine pathway to power. Then Obama and his team went along with it, and sent in his intelligence agencies to help. Then the notion that HRC could “slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin” came to seem obvious to everyone in DC. Then she lost! Then an insurance policy was needed. They paid the premiums, but the policy wasn’t backed up by anything. Mueller’s investigation netted a handful of process crimes, some unverified fundamental conclusions (e.g., the Russians hacked the DNC), but basically smashed the bottom out of the Russian collusion ship, revealing their mutinous crew. Now all the details of their criminal acts are in the sights of the DOJ IG, AG Barr, Durham (whatever became of Huber?).

    The thing that alarms me is that some substantial part of DC apparently believes that Impeachment may win, or at least save the sorry a**es of those who should be held accountable. For that to be true requires believing that no accountability is coming.

    Can the House even plausibly launch impeachment without forcing the issue of Mueller testimony? Are they boxed in? They have to pretend they want him to testify when they know it would be disaster, so they’re acting like they’re “negotiating” for it, and ultimately will claim vaguely that “the White House” made it too difficult.

    I don’t think Mueller is mentally sound. I believe they *really* can’t allow him to testify. And that has got to make impeachment too risky. Doesn’t it?

      It’s my understanding that the House can easily impeach but the problem will be with the Senate, which will hold the trial. During the trial Trump’s defense will surely involve Mueller testimony.

      But that’s just my understanding and I am by no means an expert in governmental goings-on. I hope I’m right but I might not be.

    Mueller can’t testify, not for any honest reason but because he can’t exaggerate evidence, thereby contradicting his own bad faith, ill willed, false pretense “report”, nor can he discount what is already zero evidence of Rats’ sassafras “Trump collusion” narrative.

    As Loretta-baby trundles forward like some nursery elephant on wheels, blatting forth supremely unintelligent denials, one wonders– if Crisco mixed with fish-heads is a dog’s breakfast, what does that make Gangrenous’ tarmac-hospitable AG? (That’s a koan, son. The answer is, “The higher the fewer,” but of course that’s not the classic, true response.)

      Just a few days ago she told congressional Dems that there would be NO IMPEACHMENT and no one objected.

      Wonder what changed?

      Politico:

      Pelosi and her top deputies announced they will hold a closed-door meeting Wednesday to fully brief members on the House Democrats’ sprawling oversight efforts and investigations — an attempt to mollify the faction of Democrats who have begun to demand more drastic measures against Trump.

      But at a closed-door meeting late Monday, Pelosi rejected calls from House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler to move ahead with an impeachment inquiry, according to multiple sources. Nadler was also instructed to tell members of the panel not to bring up the notion of an impeachment inquiry at the panel’s high-profile hearing Tuesday, where McGahn defied a Democratic subpoena.

      This is good. Nadler is ticking off Pelosi. Pelosi is supposed to be the leader of the House but Nadler and others are trying to wrest power away from her. She’s actually right to not pursue impeachment, it will fail at the Senate trial, Trump will not be convicted.

    Naddler is sick. His color, his skin and watch his hands. It is hard physical work for him to sit there.

    I give it 50/50 that he will see ER before month’s end.

    Assume that Nadler remains averse to calling Mueller as a witness to his committee acting in a general fact-finding mode, presumably out of fear of an embarrassing Mueller performance under hostile questioning by Collins, et al. Do the risks to the Dems diminish or increase for the same committee shifting to impeachment mode?

    Meanwhile, Mueller, Inc. appears intent on getting out the word that their guy is reluctant to show up as a witness because he doesn’t want to “appear political.” Does it get more political in Nadlerville than a formal impeachment hearing?

    So my impeachment barometer is set on Jerry’s witness list. And while acknowledging that certain Yankee philosopher’s wise caution, that predictions are hard, especially about the future; he also noted that you can observe a lot, just by watching.

    It’s so obvious and I knew he would not show. Muller does not want to expose himself to the questions from the Republicans that would expose him for the fraud he is. That is all.

    I think the first comment in the below piece sums it up quite well.

    “Mueller has zero interest in testifying under oath.
    “When did you know Trump was innocent of collusion?” “Why didn’t you mention Fusion GPS in the report?” “Did you review the FISA warrants?” “Why did you wait until after the mid-terms to publish your report?” etc,etc,etc…

    So, Democrats are going to give impeachment a go.

    They really don’t have a lot of choice. The zombie base that they worked into the Muh Rushan Clooshun frenzy is demanding fresh Trump meat for dinner and, well, they won’t take “no” for an answer.

      But the Democrats know that impeachment will be a flop just like everything else they’ve tried. How many more flops can their base tolerate? The base was assured “Trump can’t win the nomination”, “Trump can’t win the election”, “Trump is going to be indicted”, etc. I think the Democrats are barking a lot about impeachment just for a show but aren’t really going to carry through. The timing is getting tricky for them with the 2020 primaries on the radar.

    Saw an amazing comment earlier about Congressional oversight needing to be applied to Biden’s questionable dealings in things foreign and financial.

    Not sure if there is a way for that to happen.

    The point made by the poster was that it would put the Democrats whoa-brakes on “investigating” him, and they would be forced to publicly defend their objection, a fun show to watch considering the level of hypocrisy involved.

    Ranking minority member Collins has stepped up very impressively while the GOP majority Senate seems to be doddling along as POTUS is facing constant and relentless attacks. Isn’t this the standard Republican response? When they are the opposition they make great speeches and promises that never seem to match their achievements when in the majority. Without POTUS publicly pushing hard on his agenda, very little would have been done between 2016-2018 with the Ryan/McConnell majority duo in charge.

    Today the most impressive chamber for the GOP is the minority opposition House with Collins on the point and the Freedom Caucus covering his flanks while the majority Senate seems to be getting quietly buried under the media’s mountain of anti Trump Dem propaganda and malicious subpoenas generated by Nadler et al. I hope the Senate and Sen Graham prove me very wrong. They could have subpoenaed Mueller and asked him many puzzling questions but Graham shot that idea down long ago. Not impressive.

    It’s against the law to lie to Congress during testimony. = Mueller would be on the spot, for possible jail-time,if he lied. … If he told the truth, it might incriminate many ‘Democrat’ operatives. … Saying, ‘I don’t recall’ ~ a large number of times would be complete buffoonery.

    TheLastRefuge has numerous articles about the Uni-party among ~many Democrat and Republican Senators. TheLastRefuge has pointed out, that President Trump’s political strength is derived from his base of supporters, and just a few Washington DC politicians.
    [Republican, Congressman Justin Amash (with his call for Trump’s impeachment) is just the latest example of the ~constant, treachery, Trump faces.]

    The Big-Money is calling in all of its markers, trying to derail Trump.
    There are a lot of citizens supporting Trump, but we do need Trump operating the Trump-Train to Make America Great.
