Jim Jordan Discusses Last Minute Addition of Zebley, and Mueller Expectations…

Representative Jim Jordan discusses his perspective on the last minute addition of Aaron Zebley to protect the collective interests of the DOJ/FBI small group and coup-plotters.

.

It’s worth noting how the DOJ quickly promoted Aaron Zebley to the position of “Deputy Special Counsel” just yesterday to afford: (1) increased justification; and (2) enhanced credibility, for their narrative.

    Zebley is going to eat up the 5 minutes of each house republican and probably has rehearsed soundbites. Total farce.

    How the Hell can there be a Deputy Special Counsel…if the office of the Special Counsel has been shut down?

    Calling AG Barr? I really hope you are just standing back to let the idiots hang themselves.

    Really hope so.

    Zebley is not going to be sworn in, so he can spew lies and innuendo that will be echoed by the corrupt media.

    Since they spent 2 years building Mueller up as some sort of super hero I’m not sure the Zebley thing is going to work. I like Jordan’s attitude of just proceeding as planned to question Mueller. If Mueller has to consult or try to let Zebley answer for him it really only continues to destroy the stoic Mueller hero angle they worked so hard to build.

      Louie Gohmert sent a raging e-mail about Mueller, making him out to be the ringleader of the coup, asking for donations to fight him. Why would it require money? Rhetorical question of course, but I did enjoy the rage-tone of the letter.

    What’s to keep the GOP committee members from pressing Mueller to provide answers independently, without “assistance” from Zebley? Ask Mueller, then halt any inputs from Zebley. If Mueller cannot provide the answers, it shows the man as a tool/figurehead. Don’t give Zebley the opportunity to make any inputs.

      How about bringing in an actual sports timekeeper who will add up the minutes that Mueller “consults” with Zitney and ensures that each member’s 5 minutes are not shortened by those diversions. “Delay of game penalty” is another possibility.

    It’s obvious these 2 great Americans had not seen the 2nd surprise on the day before the hearing–Pelosi’s “Mueller Blitz” media release yet.

    The Blitz has several “screeching” All Caps headlines and several underlined condemnatory attacks but one important thing it doesn’t have is one indictable fact. It’s just a contrived political hit job written by high priced lawyers using jargon likely to fool the gullible which is hopefully a small minority of Americans. However, it’s very fortunate, the Republicans won the Senate.

    Why even try ?

    Why extend to ~6 hours of testimony when no testimony was preferred to be given ?

    In 6 hours one can pick and choose any nicely sounding bite desired.
    The witness can now be advised on any question that is needed.
    All they need is ~ 1 minute or less of good sound.

    How does one counter this ?
    It’s tough.
    And fruitless as few are watching anyway.

    But the way one makes the best of it is to make a louder bang than any other.
    Make noise. Clear, poignant, and searing noise. Don’t expect answers.
    They may just be forced to air it.
    Go big or go home.

    On the plus side, as long as it’s not fouled up, there is nothing to lose.
    It is a manifest fact this is defense.
    They cannot unspin that.

    Mueller I think has some legal jeopardy. Hence the appearance of his counsel at his side. The concern of Zebley contributing to stalling underscores the apparent legal risks Mueller faces. Stalling is a tactic to buy time to organize a proper defense. For what might you ask? How about sedition, obstruction of justice and fraud. Mueller is no choir boy folks.

    This must be an AG Barr sting operation of some sort. Way above my pay grade.

    But why would President Trump’s prime Swamp Drainer promote this guy to Deputy Special Counsel at the last minute to protect Mueller?

    What is Barr’s Swamp Draining plan with this move. The man is many steps ahead of me on his Swamp Draining.

    So far ahead I can’t even make out what he’s actually doing.

    They knew Mr. Handler, alleged “Deputy Special Counsel”, would be there from Day 1. This “last minute” announcement is for effect only. As Sundance says, to drum up outrage, and to give the American people the middle finger once again.

    Personally, I think Mueller was always part of their insurance policy. He was just waiting in the wings for Comey to be fired and then they would roll him out as the white hat who would save the day.

    The good news is that any objective individual understands from Mueller’s own actions and inactions that he is not, nor was he ever, the lily-white choir boy the UNIParty made him out to be when they pushed the American Citizens into this ridiculous and outrageously expensive witch hunt, claiming we needed to get to the bottom of it. He didn’t even try to be objective, that is clear.

  22. You know, everyone seems to have one or two questions that they’re just dying to hear Mueller be asked, tomorrow. I was immune to conjuring questions till earlier this evening, when I remembered Mueller (disingenuously and erroneously) declaring, ““If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

    I’d like for someone to ask Mueller to roughly estimate how many cases he’s tried, over the years– 50?; 500?; 2,000?; 5,000?; 10,000? The answer is irrelevant, but after he determines some number– ANY number– then, ask the SOB in how many of those cases did he have confidence that the defendant clearly did not commit a crime– And, Mueller will not be able to say even ‘one’.

    Zero. In his 70+ years Mueller has never had confidence that the defendant clearly did not commit a crime. That takes some of the sting out of his ludicrous statement, that Lo-Fo voters may be valuing.

    • Hot damn!! Representative John Ratcliffe asked my question this morning, and Mueller stuttered, stammered and finally said ‘he cannot name a precedent in which the Justice Department decided an individual was not exonerated because their innocence had not been proven…’

      “Can you give me an example other than Donald Trump where the Justice Department determined that an investigated person was not exonerated because their innocence was not conclusively determined?” the Texas Republican asked.

      “I cannot, but this is a unique situation,” Mueller responded.

      “It doesn’t exist,” Ratcliffe continued. “Nowhere does it say that you were to conclusively determine Donald Trump’s innocence or that the special counsel report should determine whether or not to exonerate him. It’s not in any of the documents, it’s not in your appointment order, it’s not in any of the special counsel regulations, it’s not in the OLC opinions, it’s not in the Justice manual, and it’s not in the principles of federal prosecution.”

      Well, that was fun, but I don’t think I’m gonna go to Law School, this Fall… No offense to the attorneys here at The Treehouse, but I promised The Lord I’d use my mind for good; not evil 😉 My younger brother’s the attorney in the family, and our father discouraged us kids from going into the same field of study, as one another…

    My personal opinion is Mr Mueller may be suffering from dementia, which would explain his being accompanied today by Mr Zebley.

    Also, I now believe it is the intention of the DOJ to “run out the clock” on any serious investigations of related actions taken by the Obama Administration during 2015-16.

    In support of this contention, I would cite the lack of any hearings on this subject being held by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    (Why this is, I’m not sure. But a logical inference would be that senior Republicans were somehow involved as well.)
