Presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway weighed-in Friday on Robert Mueller’s disastrous testimony at the US Capitol; asking if the former special counsel ever bothered to read his own Russia report.
“I saw somebody who did not want be used and abused by people. I also saw somebody who -is not clear to me- was in charge of his own investigation or most of it. I saw a poll that said very few Americans have read the Mueller report… I’d like to know if that number includes Bob Mueller himself,” said Conway at the White House.

Despite Mueller’s bizarre testimony, House Democrats refuse to back-off their non-stop push to impeach the President.
“Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee said Friday they are proceeding with what they called an ‘impeachment investigation,’ as they insisted former Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered damning testimony against President Trump in this week’s hearing despite concerns from many on the left that his appearance was faltering and broke little new ground,” reports Fox News.
“The House must have access to all evidence,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler said Friday. “We are exercising our constitutional authority. We are continuing the investigation of President Trump’s malfeasances, and we will do and consider what we have to consider including whether we should recommend Articles of Impeachment to the House. We may, we may not. It remains to be seen.”
“We are crossing the threshold,” Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, said. “When you think about the mode we were operating under before, it was an oversight. This is now crossing the threshold with this filing, and officially entering into an examination into whether or not to recommend articles of impeachment—I just want to make that point clear.”
“This is an impeachment investigation, on whether we should introduce articles of impeachment to Congress,” added failed presidential candidate Eric Swalwell.
“Chairman Nadler’s legal action here is sure to fail, weakening Congress’s ability to conduct oversight now and into the future. If my colleagues want grand jury information, they should propose legislation allowing Congress to access it,” said Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia. “Democrats want to convince their base they’re still wedded to impeachment even after this week’s hearing, but a baseless legal claim is an odd way to show that.”
