MUELLER TIME: Special Counsel Set to Make 11am Statement

After months of silence, we will finally hear from Mueller himself.

Robert Mueller

It took months of goading by democrats, authors, and the American people, but we may finally get the answers we’ve been asking for.

For 22 long months, and at a cost approaching $30 million, Robert Mueller trudged through the tertiary connections between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign.  The left hoped that the Special Counsel would find ample evidence to indict the sitting President on something – maybe “collusion”, maybe “obstruction”.  When neither of these charges came to fruition against Donald Trump, congressional democrats decided to dig a little deeper, believing that Robert Mueller had left them a “road map” for impeachment.

Of course, the republicans disagree, and they have the backing of the Justice Department’s top official Attorney General Bill Barr.

Now, after months of silence, Mueller himself is set to speak to the nation at 11am.

“Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III will make a statement on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election,” the department said. “This will be a statement only, no question and answer period to follow.”

A senior White House official said that the White House was notified on Tuesday night that Mueller might make a statement, so the administration was not caught off-guard.

Mueller has not made any comment on the investigation since he was named special counsel in May 2017. House Democrats are seeking to have him testify before Congress in the coming weeks. Last week, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said Mueller was willing to testify but only in private.

There has been no indication as to the content of the coming press conference, leaving many Americans to speculate as to Mueller intentions.

Working for VP Harris is ‘Scarlet Letter’ in White House, Aides Flee in Droves

WHOA!

Published

on

The situation at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is a strange one at this moment, and news from the East Wing has many wondering just how much worse things are going to get before they begin to mend.

While there is certainly a great deal of trouble within the Biden administration, perhaps no corner of the executive branch is quite as worrisome as the office of the Vice President, with Kamala Harris dropping staffers by the handful, and new reports of castigation befalling those who’ve worked for her.

A new report revealed that departing staffers for Vice President Harris are leaving their White House posts in part due to concerns of being forever labeled a “Harris person.”

A growing list of Harris staffers are heading out the door amid internal chaos and disastrous poll numbers.

The concern of being labeled a “Harris person,” as well as burnout and desire for greener pastures, are driving the exodus from the vice president’s office, sources familiar with the chaos in the VP’s office told Axios.

One anonymous Democratic strategist said that Harris needs “someone loyal, who can think methodically to best position the vice president and to make sure everything she’s doing is being maximized and communicated to a broad population and get her numbers up.”

And also:

A different Democratic operative close to the veep’s office told Axiosthat the staff departures are lighting a fire under chief of staff Tina Flournoy to keep the sinking ship afloat.

“If we mess this up, it’s going to set women back when it comes to running for higher office for years to come,” the operative said.

The label of being a “Harris person” apparently carries a weighted stigma with it in Washington — something that does not bode well for the fledgling veep as her first year in office begins to wrap up.

The news will undoubtedly reignite the Democrats’ fears about their chances to win the White House again in 2024.

President Biden Claims Persistent Cough is Not COVID-Related

But Fox’s Peter Doocy had to ask anyway.

Published

on

When the nation elected Joe Biden, there were concerns…not only about the possibility that he’d be able achieve much of anything, but also about his age and health.

Biden has never been all that slick with his words, and this is not a dig at his battle with a speech impediment:  He just says a whole lot of awfully goofy and incorrect things. It’s a lot of what he’s known for, and it’s made the job of the writers at Saturday Night Live much easier.

Cognitive function aside, Biden’s sheer age has been a concern as well, especially during a pandemic.

One Fox News reporter appeared to show concern for the President’s persistence cough this week, but Biden has insisted that it’s nothing to worry about.

Fox News’s Peter Doocy noticed President Joe Biden’s voice was a little different Friday and as such, queried about his health, asking “are you okay?”

The inquiry came at the end of remarks given in the White House following jobs report that MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinksi described to Jen Psaki as “off.” Fox News’ chyron, however, blared “DISAPPOINTING,’  an assessment which was not unfair.

“First of all, Mr. President, your voice sounds different. Are you okay?” Doocy asked

His answer?

“I’m okay. I have a test every day to — covid test,” Biden explained. “What I have is a 1 1/2-year-old grandson who had a cold who likes to kiss his pop and he has been kissing me anyway. But it is just a cold.” Doocy followed with a question about Covid-19 and the administration’s efforts to continue to mitigate the spread of the potentially deadly pathogen.

President Biden announced new stricter rules for international travelers coming into the US on Thursday, on account of the latest news surrounding the omicron variant.
