BOB’S VERY BAD DAY: Mueller Says He’s ‘Not Familiar’ With Fusion GPS, Firm Behind Steele Dossier

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.24.19

Former special counsel Robert Mueller stunned lawmakers on Capitol Hill during his Congressional testimony Wednesday; telling legislators he was “not familiar” with opposition-research firm Fusion GPS.

“When discussing the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, you reference ‘the firm that produced the Steele reporting.’ The name of that firm was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?” asked Rep. Steve Chabot.

“Page 103. That’s correct- Volume II. When you talk about the firm that produced the Steele reporting, the name of the firm that produced that was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?” pressed Chabot.

“I am not familiar with—with that, I—,” Mueller replied.

“It was. It’s not a trick question. It was Fusion GPS,” Chabot said.

“Steele authored and compiled information for the controversial and unverified anti-Trump dossier on behalf of Fusion GPS — the firm that was hired to conduct opposition research funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign through law firm Perkins Coie,” reports Fox News.

That document was then used to obtain FISA warrants against individuals close to the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Sen. Lindsey Graham weighed-in Wednesday afternoon on Robert Mueller’s “confusing and sad” testimony before Congress; calling his behavior “dangerous and ridiculous.”

“Wow. Robert Mueller changing the job of a prosecutor from proving someone ‘Guilty beyond a reasonable doubt’ to ‘Not being able to exonerate someone accused of a crime.’ Dangerous and ridiculous. Thus far Mueller completely contradicts what he told AG Barr about the reason not to proceed on the obstruction of justice. He told AG Barr that the decision not to proceed was not solely based on the OLC opinion but on complicated facts in the law. Mueller hearing becoming very confusing and sad,” posted Graham on social media.

The mainstream media is already downplaying Robert Mueller’s highly-anticipated testimony hours before its conclusion; labeling the event a ‘Day of Disappointments’ for Congressional Democrats.

NY POST EDITORIAL BOARD: ‘Nadler’s Mueller Hearing Was a Waste of Everyone’s Time’

The New York Post Editorial Board blasted Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s Mueller hearing Wednesday; calling the entire spectacle a “waste of everyone’s time.”

“By all accounts, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hoped that dragging in former special counsel Bob Mueller for a hearing would jump-start his drive to get going on impeachment. Oops: It was a total waste of time,” writes the Editorial Board. “Mueller made it clear long in advance that he didn’t want to testify, and wouldn’t talk about anything except what was in his report. He even got the Justice Department to issue a guidance instructing him to keep to his preferred limits.”

“What did we learn? Nothing. What’s the impact? Nothing. If Nadler was hoping to get Democrats and their voters energized about impeachment, he’ll surely be disappointed. And we’re no closer to knowing how much this long investigation relied on opposition research by Hillary Clinton and dirty tricks by intelligence operatives appalled by Donald Trump,” adds the Post.

The senator also envisioned some of the questions Mueller will likely be asked — by Republicans, of course.

“Bottom line is, after all of your looking and all the time you had and all the money you spent, did Trump collude with the Russians? No – Do you stand by your report? – Yes,” Graham said.

“It is ‘case-closed’ for me,” he added, making it clear that there’ll be no dog and pony in the Senate. “They can do anything they want to in the House, and I think it will blow up in their face.”

Sean discussed other potential questions for Mueller, for instance, “How do you justify hiring Hillary Clinton’s attorney and hiring only Democrat attorneys?”

“It will blow up in their face. This will blow up in their face,” Graham repeated. “The conclusions can’t change, there is no collusion, that’s what the whole thing was about, to begin with.”

As for alleged obstruction, Graham noted that Trump gave 1.4 million documents to Mueller and let former White House counsel Don McGahn to testified for 30 hours.
