Descent to the Mueller miasma

Yesterday’s appearance of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees did not go exactly as planned by the Democrats. While Democrats sought to have Mueller regurgitate the alleged wrongdoing of Donald Trump, anyone who saw Mueller respond to the questions posed must have wondered who ran the investigation conducted under Mueller’s nominal authority and whether Mueller read the report issued in his name.

The Washington Free Beacon’s David Rutz has compiled the supercuts video below displaying the motifs that ran through Mueller’s testimony. The Free Beacon has posted the video here along with Rutz’s brief account of the lowlights reel. What a farce.

Twitter captured Republican members’ most devastating exchanges with Mueller. There were several. I have embedded a few of them below.

Rep. Doug Collins made a key point that belied a Democratic theme near the outset of the show yesterday morning.

Rep. John Ratcliffe followed up with a devastating exchange that exposed the vacuity of a featured Democratic talking point with admirable efficiency.

Rep. Matt Gaetz reviewed essential facts that seemed to have escaped Mueller’s attention. Mr. Mueller, you’ve got to be kidding me!

For those of us who have been following the “collusion” hoax in some detail, this may have been Mueller’s leading “you’ve got to be kidding me” moment. Breitbart’s Aaron Klein comments here. Quick! Somebody call Visiting Angels!
