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

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.24.19

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.

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.

GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Dems Are ‘MAD’ at Barr Because They Didn’t Get the ‘Outcome They Wanted’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.02.19

Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on Attorney General William Barr’s congressional testimony; saying Democrats are simply “mad” because they didn’t “get the outcome they wanted.”


“To all my friends on the other side… We gave Mueller two years to do his job. He had 19 lawyers, he had $25 million, he interviewed 500 people, he issued 2,000 subpoenas, he had plenty of opportunity without interference… Here’s what we know: There was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians,” said Graham.

“It is over. The reason they’re mad at Barr and me is because they didn’t get the outcome they want. My friends on the other side want an outcome, and they don’t care how they get it,” he added.

GRAHAM SLAM: Lindsey Graham UNLOADS on Mueller’s ‘CONFUSING AND SAD’ Testimony

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.

“It’s hard to understand what congressional Democrats hope to achieve by summoning a reluctant Robert Mueller to appear before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on Wednesday,” reports the Week.

“The former special counsel’s exhaustive 448-page report has been done for nearly four months. It’s been public for three, with the country having plenty of time to absorb its comically anti-climactic conclusion,” adds the website. “So here we are, waiting for Democrats to question Mueller on the subject, even though he has made it quite clear that he won’t answer any questions beyond the bounds of what’s in the report itself. What’s likely to come from that? Legally speaking, the answer is almost certainly nothing. And politically speaking? Maybe even less.”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller appeared flustered in the opening hours of his Congressional testimony Wednesday; asking lawmakers to repeat their questions and dodging direct inquiries into Fusion GPS and the infamous Steele Dossier.

“The longtime lawman was known to be reluctant to testify, having made clear he would largely stick to the boundaries of his original report. He reiterated Wednesday that his testimony before House committees would be based on the text of his report on Russian election interference and potential obstruction of the investigation,” reports Fox News.

“As defined in legal dictionaries, collusion is largely synonymous with conspiracy as that crime is set forth in the general federal conspiracy statute,” Rep. Doug Collins read from the report. “Now, you said you chose your words carefully. Are you contradicting your report right now?”

“Not when I read it,” Mueller replied.

“No, no, the uh, if you look at the language,” deflected Mueller.
