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?

Joe Biden Wants Congress To Ban Chokeholds And Work On Police Reform

Published

on

Former Vice President and current Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden has called on Congress to take up the fight for police reform now instead of waiting until November. These comments come just a day after President Trump encouraged the use of military force to try and bring the chaos reigning in many cities across the country as violent protests explode, leading to riots, looting, and even shootings. Biden wants to see lawmakers ban the use of chokeholds by law enforcement officers with a federal law. Along with this he wants to see a national list of use-of-force best practices and for military grade equipment to stop being transferred over to local police departments. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If Mitch McConnell can bring in the Senate to confirm Trump’s unqualified judicial nominees who will run roughshod over our Constitution now, it’s time to pass legislation that will give true meaning to our constitutional promise of equal protection under the law,” Biden said. Biden then went on to vow that he would make dealing with institutional racism one of his top priorities during his 100 days in office, should he defeat Trump in the upcoming presidential election. He also restated that he supports a police oversight commission. “Bad cops should be dealt with severely and swiftly,” Biden stated. “We set up in the Justice Department the ability for the Civil Rights Division to go in and look at the practices and policies of police departments. That’s why we were able to stop stop and frisk,” Biden told leaders gathered at the Bethel AME Church. “Reestablish that with more teeth in it because we also have to fundamentally change the way in which police are trained.” How can Biden claim to deal with institutional racism? Racism is a…

Biden Delivers Speech On Racism, Says Trump Is ‘Part Of The Problem’

Published

on

During remarks delivered by Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden concerning the rioting, looting, and deadly protests happening across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police officers, the former vice president couldn’t resist sliding in a big shot at President Trump. “The president of the United States must be part of the solution, not part of the problem,” Biden said during the speech Tuesday morning. “But this president today is part of the problem and accelerates it.” The speech, so far, is the most direct assault on the president’s handling of the current civil unrest rocking the country after Floyd’s tragic death in Minneapolis on May 25. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “When he tweeted the words when the looting starts the shooting starts, they weren’t the words of the president, they were the words of a racist Miami police chief in the 1960s,” Biden said, referencing Trump’s controversial tweets over the last week. “The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us, leadership that brings us together. Leadership that can recognize pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for a long time,” he said. “There’s no place for violence, no place for looting, or destroying property or destroying churches or destroying businesses.” As this was a prime opportunity for Biden to chit-chat about the upcoming presidential election later this year, the presumptive nominee promised that he would “seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country.” What that entails or how he plans to do such a thing still remain a mystery.
