        I’m wondering if Barr was sending his ol bud Mueller a message, when he volonteered that DOJ would certainly support Mueller if he decided not to testify?

        Was there perhaps an unspoken corelary; and if you DO agree to testify, participating in this dog/pony show, forget about any ‘support’; let it be on your head?
        And if Mueller heard the message, loud and clear?

          It seems like it’s all public now. This removes what the Democrats hoped and Mueller was temptation and opportunity to venture off the SC report.

          But Bob faced reality. He’s going to parrot whatever the Mueller SC report says. Democrats don’t like him anyway and Barr stays off his @ss for now.

          That is, until new information comes to light and then Bob is on his own which I am sure Barr let Mueller know.

        I predicted, in another thread, Mueller wouldn’t testify.

        Epstein’s arrest coupled with recent court decision ordering Team Mueller to cease referring to Concord as Russian sanctioned meddlers in 2016 election, are but two chinks in Sir Mueller’s armor.

      I believe the delay is only to prepare him for possible new information. Tonight on Hannity, Trey Gowdy stated that the Repubs get a chance ONLY if Mueller slips up and goes outside the script. Trey Gowdy also stated if he wanted anything out of it he would want to know it would be to corner Mueller about the Office of Legal Counsel boondoggle re:obstruction. He would ask if the report was outside of the scope of his responsibilities. Hard to gey much from it since Hannity talks over everyone. He gets very good guests but does not let us hear what is being said.

        Hannity was particularly annoying tonight, CONSTANTLY stepping on each participant’s salient point. The upshot was, I couldn’t hear Hannity or the participant, talking over each other, and all, except Geraldo, were well worth hearing. i figure Geraldo must have something on the Murdochs. Otherwise he would be where he belongs, in the dust bins of blabbermouths.

        It means seconds after a Republican (or by some freak of nature a Democrat) begins answering the questions Sundance has outlined outside the scope of the Mueller report, Nadler will bang the gavel incessantly and proclaim the question meaningless.

        After admonishing the questioner, Nadler will say proceed.

        If the questioner continues to ask lucid meaningful questions, Nadler will have the questioners mic shut-off and he will move on to a plantation Democrat’s questioning.

      I would agree, if it were actually going to happen.

      The dems aren’t afraid of what Mueller will be asked. Gowdy was right — no matter *what* anyone were to ask, they’re just not going to trip up these trained spooks, no matter how blatant the contradictions and absurdities. You’ve seen these hearings. They aint depositions. The leverage and rules aren’t in place to hold a witness to a question. If that were all it is — Nadler would have showcased him already, possibly multiple days.

      The problem is Mueller himself. I believe the barely-concealed secret is that he’s just not up to it. A *trained spook* or even a semi-intelligent slimeball could slither by; but I truly believe Mueller is firing on all cylinders, very few people know that with certainty, and it’s exacerbating and already-charged dance over his testimony.

      The irony is, whatever zingers the Rs are practicing in the shower, all they really may need to ask is an “exam” question, like please summarize the findings on [X]. What may inadvertently save Mueller is never having a long enough time talk to expose himself.

      But I doubt it comes to that. It’s going to slide right off the calendar until the summer’s over. Risk is too high.

        Newhere nailed it and I’ll add….

        1) Mueller was a figurehead for an investigation that was run by others.
        2) The Report WHICH HAS HIS NAME ON IT was not written by him

        3) For the last 2 years MSM has been replaying loops of Mueller FROM A DECADE AGO.
        Images of Mueller at his prime of power and “honor”.

        Then there was Mueller posters, Mueller prayer candles, Mueller poems, SNL singing about him…..

        They have been WORSHIPING a man…………that NO LONGER EXISTS.
        That 9 minute presser was rather shocking….it revealed that the Wizard was just an ol humbug…..couldn’t remember his lines and too SCARED to even take a question from a MSM that were the HIGH PRIESTS of the MUELLER CULT

        4) SCARED because he knows little about the INVESTIGATION other than IT WAS A SCAM

        Maybe in his HEYDAY he could have pulled off what needs to be done….but he ain’t got the juice now.
        The American people didn’t hire him to investigate a bubble gum theft at the Circle K in Noblick, Missouri (great place, BTW)…….no no….
        He was paid $30 M to do the “most important investigation in US history”:
        Find out whether “Vladimir Putin had a Russian Op running out of the Oval Office.”
        (h/t Rachel Maddow)
        Not remember facts about his OWN investigation is one thing…….

        But REFUSING to answer or (D’s BLOCKING him from answering) BASIC QUESTIONS about the investigation WE PAID FOR
        and showing it all on Super-Bowl sized TV event……
        will be like Fonzie dropping the chopper in favor of water ski’s..
        only worse….
        Fonzie is a 72 yr old man and can’t give the thumbs up HEYYY because he’s too busy wiping his ever-leaking runny nose.

        Barr threw him a lifeline and gave him an out.
        I’m more concerned Barr will actually STEP-IN and block

        Other than that maybe the Dems are putting the finishing touches on a COMEY-SIZED Mueller costume and the wandering Twitter poet is working on his best Bob impression.

          I don’t think Barr will step in. He’s been savvy. He knows he can’t. That’s why he did the lifeline thing, as you point out. Perhaps the risk is he’ll bend over backward giving cover in a way that starts to sound fishy, and the new line will be that he “secretly” stopped him … but, no, I think he’s Barr’s got the play down pat.

          I do think mental incapacity could explain why Barr is steadfastly handling him with kidd gloves. The “friendship” thing might explain it, but only to a point, if Barr is the real deal. But it would make sense if Barr quickly surmised that Bob was enlisted to play the useful idiot, likely even pressured due to already being compromised (I mean, does he look like he’s enjoyed any of this?), there wasn’t much point in hammering him, that Weissmann is running the operation, and in the end Mueller will probably be exposed/humiliated (possibly punished) and in the meantime he can’t even really be squeezed to roll on anyone … he’s just the willing dupe.

            I concur. Its obvious from Barr’s testimony that he knows Mueller had little to do with the report itself and that it was written by others. I’m fairly certain Barr is of the opinion that the investigation is over, the report is written and Mueller’s official capacity is done. Anything he does beyond this point falls on his own head for being stupid enough to continue playing the game instead of bailing out and going radio silent (i.e. “the report is my testimony”) like he originally said he would.

            The thing is, Mueller, if nothing else, appears to be a fairly private guy and someone who knows the blood sport that is politics. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why he agreed to testify. Its not like Nadler was ever going to subpoena him, despite the noises he made otherwise.So why agree to testify? Gowdy flat out stated the guy isn’t going to offer up anything new and will answer questions in the most mundane, boring way possible. I’ve seen Mueller testify in the past and have to agree with the assessment. There has to be a yet unknown reason for why Mueller agreed to testify.

            The only reason I can come up with is that Weissmann and others agreed to testify when Mueller wouldn’t, which forced Mueller’s hand because he knows they will take a scorched earth approach and in their zeal to see the president taken down would inadvertently completely destroy the report and Mueller’s reputation as well as giving the Republicans all the ammo they need to go guns blazing after the small group, including Mueller himself and everyone on the SC team all in one foul swoop. It’s not that Mueller’s playing good guy here, he’s just practicing self preservation.

      I follow all cabinet members on Twitter. Lots going on – money saved, processes changed, more assistance delivered. Trump administration will get little credit for the massive cleanup happening across the board. Regardless of 2020 outcome, the size, accounting practices, regulatory processes, etc., have been scrutinized and cleaned up and programs implemented. I think Trump gave his team a “hurry up” order in case he was a one term President.

    Did you miss this?

    The negotiations come as a closed-door session with Mueller and his deputies was suddenly canceled. Under the original plan, after the open hearing with Mueller, House Democrats had proposed to question Mueller and his top lieutenants in private for an hour. But on Wednesday, lawmakers were told that the session was off.

    Alter the Committee Hearing Format for Mueller’s Testimony
    By Margaret Taylor Tuesday, July 9, 2019
    https://www.lawfareblog.com/alter-committee-hearing-format-muellers-testimony

    -snip-

    For Mueller’s upcoming hearings, Congress should consider trying something different. Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler and Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff could first recognize all of the Democratic members to question Mueller, then recognize all of the Republican members. This would involve calling on the members of each party serially, in two separate blocs, and would allow each party to develop its own line of questioning in full.

    • … knowing, of course, that “limiting the hearing to one hour” would prevent any Republicans from actually asking any questions.

      Honestly, these Committees should probably stop(!) listening to these “Lawfare” people. They’re not giving good advice. They’re concocting ways to “jimmy the rules of Committee proceedings,” and developing “novel interpretations” of [the last half of one sentence of …] the Obstruction of Justice statute, all the while presuming that nobody in America is actually aware of what they are doing.

      They call themselves “the smartest (and no doubt, the highest-paid) kids in school,” but they talk like idiots, and they are making a damned fool of several Congressional Committees.

      Hey Margaret……
      How bout just having the hearing in the swimming pool at the retirement center so Mueller doesn’t miss his afternoon “water jazzer-cise” class.

      All the members can optionally either join the class and dance along to 80s oldies or
      float the lazy river while they ask their questions.

      BONUS: Wednesdays are LIME JELL-O days at dinner served promptly at 3PM.

  27. Further complicating the situation now, of course, is the recent ruling by the judge in the Concord Management case – in which one of the Russian companies cited by Mueller actually showed up in US Courts and requested to be arraigned. The Judge has instructed the prosecution not to make any statements, in court nor publicly, to the effect that the plaintiffs are “associated with the Russian Government.” Since of course this is precisely what Mueller said in his Report, one wonders what the impact will now be to his Congressional testimony.

    “They’re Russian. They’re not on US soil. They’ll never show up in court here …”

    Oops.

    A Federal judge has ruled that Mueller has no proof that Russian trolls were part of the Russian government.* The “Russian government interference” of the 2016 presidential election was a Mueller-Weissman-concocted ruse (or a hoax, as PDJT always says) that’s falling appart. Could this be the reason why crooked puppet Mueller needs more time to compose and rehearse his answers at the staged congressional circus parade?

    Just catching up on this…….. 2 explanations, 2.5 explanations suggest themselves, off the bat, all of which can be factors…..

    1. Mueller/Legal: Mueller simply cannot appear & testify, even sticking to his report, and take questions, due to the issues surrounding Concord Management & Consulting, LLC…. Mueller called this delay, acccording to the statement so see 3

    2. Logistical: This thing was already getting more complicated than planning WrestleMania, & Schiff & Nadler just found themselves over their heads & called a timeout. Probably not, but sure they are relieved to have it off their back another 7 days

    3. Backstage: Things we don’t know or can’t know. Possibly Mueller has been talking to AG Barr, perhaps he picked up the phone after the AG offered him a lifeline

      4. Lawfare: liike Sundance said, Mueller may need additional coaching. I didn’t think about that, since he’s held his own in the past. But in the past 2 yrs he’s acted like a totally depleted man, puppet, front man for laundering others’ business, sad. A friend looked at the pic of he & Barr from the 1990s & said “WOW….. Mueller’s face used to tell a story, there was a soul in there.”

      A great follow up question to this would be, “If it wasn’t in your scope due to RR setting the scope, as a top notch non partisan investigator, did you request from RR that he expand the scope so you COULD investigate the dossiers genesis? If not, why not? A fair and partial thinker who is interested in protecting our republic at all costs would in fact want the real truth. Damned where it leads you. Your goal should have been to find the truth. Not just come in and not use your decades of investigating experience JUST to focus on what was in scope, Without even INQUIRING if you could look in that direction.

        IT WAS SMACK DAB IN MUELLER”S SCOPE:

        The 3rd Carter Page FISA renewal was REQUESTED BY and approved FOR MUELLER.
        That FISA is based on the Steele Dossier.

        So in fact he already acknowledged it was in his scope.
        R’s can make big hay out of this………
        even more so, if Mueller refuses to answer questions about it…..
        especially in HPSCI session because Adam Schiff read nearly every allegation from the dossier into the congressional record on Mar 20 2017 in his OPENING STATEMENT.

        In fact Nunes in his opening statement could read back to Mueller ADAM SCHIFF’s own “questions” from that first hearing adding
        “I look forward to discussing what you found out to answer my good friend, Mr Schiff’s, concerns from 2017……”

      This is the reason. 100%. He will now back off an not testify at all. No chance. He was already risking a lot by doing this, and now he’s lost the backbone of his entire case. He can NOT go in front of congress now that a judge has essentially said he has no proof for his claims (which in all honesty was his only claim to supposedly real Russian meddling) and can’t use them.

      Book it. He won’t testify. He’s got nothing to hide behind.

      Special counsel Robert Mueller’s claim of “sweeping and systematic” Russian meddling in the 2016 US election just took another body blow, as a federal judge ruled that his indictment of a ‘troll farm’ is not actual proof of it.
      Mueller’s charges against Concord Management & Consulting, the Russian company accused of running a “troll farm” and “sowing discord” on US social media in 2016, do not establish a link between that private company and the Russian government, US District Judge Dabney L. Friedrich pointed out.

    The originally scheduled meeting by Nadler was in violation of House procedural rules. They had planned on limiting the time and of who could ask questions. Rules require that each member of the committee who wants to ask questions be granted 5 minutes. There was a lot of blow back because this rule was going to be violated. Now, every member will be allowed their allotted time. I see this as a good thing as it creates the situation where all of the relevant questions we want answered can be asked.

    A few things from my perspective.

    Stick with me on this….Maybe ….just maybe….

    First of all, this is a complete waste of time. The Republicans should not even show up.

    The report has already been submitted. What needs to be added?

    2 years and millions of dollars later……The President did Nothing.

    Now what if after or during Mueller’s testimony the Dem’s say:

    “With all we have learned, we now consider the Mueller Report to be”

    “Invalid”…..”we need a “New” investigation”

    Then the Dems get what they want. The entire 2 year storyline starts all over again.
    Even, if another Special Prosecutor is not assigned, the report is invalidated and put on the trash heap.

    Rinse….Repeat..

    The Republicans would actually be assisting in this cause thru questioning Mueller.
    Get it?? They should not even show up.

    The move for two public sessions of three hours each is telling.
    Totally agree the need for further prep of Mueller is likely reason for the delay but not the driving force.

    Unfortunately…
    I can’t shake the unease something is going to break into the news cycle a day or two before the 24th that will shape the narrative of the last two and half years.
    Shape it in such away, the door will be opened for Mueller to speak ‘off the script’ and line up the swamp’s hearts desire.

    Not going to put words to my thoughts since I don’t want to come across like it is the DNC version of the Twelve Days Before Christmas.
    Just that…

    The last week has seen striking telegraphing of the swamp closing in and I believe VP Pence holds the answer.
