Mueller Fails To Explain Why Fusion GPS And Glenn Simpson Were Absent From His Report

Mueller’s refusal to give a straight answer is pretty much an answer, right?

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave congressional testimony on Wednesday, during which he was asked by Rep. Steve Chabot to explain why Fusion GPS, the company that hired Christopher Steele to put together the now infamous “Steele Dossier” that was used to launch the investigation into President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

The Steele Dossier was mentioned several times in the Mueller report, but the origins of the dossier were conveniently left out. Founder of Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, who was an important figure in creating all the “evidence” against Donald Trump was also not mentioned in the report.

Seems like that’s the kind of information you’d want in a report like this, right?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire on the exchange between Chabot and Mueller:

At the hearing, Chabot asked Mueller a simple question. Chabot referred Mueller to page 103 of Volume 2 of his final report, in which he describes “the firm that produced the Steele reporting,” but does not name the firm. Chabot asked Mueller: “The name of that firm was Fusion GPS, is that correct?”

Mueller, who has appeared confused at numerous questions so far during this hearing, looked at his binder, which contained a copy of his report, and asked: “And you’re on page 103?”

Chabot repeated the question.

“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?”

Mueller’s response was, “I’m not familiar with that.”

Chabot went on to put the screws to Mueller, grilling him over why he didn’t dig into Fusion GPS’s collusion with Russia during the 2016 election.

“At the same time Fusion GPS was working to collect opposition research on Donald Trump from foreign sources on behalf of the [Hillary] Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, it also was representing a Russian-based company which had been sanctioned by the U.S. Government. Are you aware of that?”

Mueller stated that all of that was “outside of my purview.”

Chabot then went on to bring up how Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with several top dogs in the Trump administration — including Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner — had been working with Fusion GPS since 2014.

“You didn’t mention that or her connections to Glenn Simpson and Fusion GPS in your report at all. NBC News reported the following: Russian lawyer says she first received supposedly incriminating information she brought to Trump Tower describing alleged tax evasion and donations to Democrats from none other than Glenn Simpson, the Fusion GPS owner.”

Mueller went on to say that the “matter was being handled by others at the Department of Justice,” though he didn’t go into any detail about who was handling that or what they found.

So Mueller’s answer to everything was “outside of my purview,” which seems like a cheap and easy way to deflect a serious question that, if answered truthfully, would paint a very negative picture of the man and his work on this investigation.

It certainly seems like the pieces of the puzzle are fitting together. It seems the Democratic Party had it out for Donald Trump from the beginning and were willing to do anything possible to stop him, which included this failure of an investigation.

Talk about fear. These folks quake in their boots over Trump. Very telling, isn’t it?

Save conservative media!

Democrat Senator Refuses to Condemn Antifa, Then Abruptly Storms Out of Hearing (Watch)

Ooooo, she got ’em good!!

There are a number of rotten apples in both the lower and upper chamber. The vast majority of them will vote for Joe Biden in November. Hawaii’s Mazie Hirono is one of the worst. When asked by Senator Ted Cruz to denounce the wildly anti-American group, “Antifa,” Mazie refused. She even took things a step further and walked out of the hearing. Yes, she literally took her ball and walked away so nobody else could play. And that’s what libs do best. From Fox News: Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when a top Democrat walked out of the room declaring she couldn’t sit through Sen. Ted Cruz’s rhetorical speeches any longer. The dustup occurred when Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

The Democrat way: cause massive problems (or refuse to fix them), then demand more and more money to cover the problem like a band-aid – knowing full well how easily it can peel off. New Yorkers, what were you thinking when you put this guy in office? Want a do-over or what?

Barbot, in the resignation letter she submitted Tuesday morning, said the Health Department’s expertise was not sufficiently tapped. “I leave my post today with deep disappointment that during the most critical public health crisis in our lifetime, that the Health Department’s incomparable disease control expertise was not used to the degree it could have been.” Do the right thing and resign, Bill. Enough is enough.
