VIDEO: GOP Lawmaker Gets Mueller To Admit He Held Trump To Different Standard

Mueller gets what he deserves here.

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller was pressed by a GOP lawmaker during testimony he delivered before Congress on Wednesday, to admit that he held President Trump to a different standard than the DOJ holds other individuals under investigation.

This, of course, isn’t surprising to those of us who were paying close attention to how the whole investigation was being handled and reported on by the mainstream media. Though it’s nice to now see that fact being owned up to by Mueller.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

“You said in Volume 1, on the issue of conspiracy, the special counsel determined that the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) said during the House Judiciary Committee hearing. “Then in volume 2 … the special counsel did not make a determination on whether there was an obstruction of justice crime committed by the president.”

“The evidence we obtained about the president’s actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred,” Ratcliffe continued, reading directly from Mueller’s report. “Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Ratcliff who is a former prosecutor, also argued that the final conclusions of the report were in violation of Department of Justice policies and principles due to the fact they failed to exonerate Trump after Mueller failed to conclusively determine he was innocent of all accusations against him.

“Your report, and today, you said that at all times the special counsel team operated under, was guided by, and followed Justice Department policies and principles,” Ratcliffe stated. “So, which DOJ policy or principle sets forth a legal standard that an investigated person is not exonerated if their innocence from criminal conduct is not conclusively determined?”

The question was repeated multiple times before Mueller finally provided a solid answer.

Mueller could not provide another example of someone who was held to the same standard as Trump, but then tried to justify it all by saying “this is a unique situation.”

“You can’t. Time is short, I’ve got five minutes, let’s just leave it at ‘you can’t find it’ because I’ll tell you why: it doesn’t exist,” Ratcliffe replied.

Ratcliffe went on to drop the hammer on Mueller for going outside of his purview by attempting to conclude whether Trump was innocent and whether or not he should be exonerated.

“The special counsel’s job, nowhere does it say that you were to conclusively determine Donald Trump’s innocence or that the special counsel report should determine whether or not to exonerate him. It’s not in any of the documents, it’s not in your appointment order, it’s not in the special counsel regulations, it’s not in the OLC opinions, it’s not in the justice manual, and it’s not in the principles of federal prosecution.”

“Nowhere do those words appear together because respectfully, respectfully, director, it was not the special counsel’s job to conclusively determine Donald Trump’s innocence or to exonerate him because the bedrock principle of our justice system is a presumption of innocence,” Rattcliffe said. “It exists for everyone. Everyone is entitled to it including sitting presidents.”

There you have it, folks. Mueller admitting this whole investigation was a face from the get-go. There was a definite political agenda undergirding the investigation, with the end goal being to find something buried on Trump so he would be impeached and hopefully removed from office.

The left is scared of Trump. They know they cannot win against him in 2020, so they’re trying dirty tricks to sneak by him and try to take on Mike Pence, who they, for some odd reason, think will be a less formidable foe.

They’re delusional, to say the least.

Save conservative media!

Trump Set to Declassify Obamagate Docs, Will Show Obama Spying on Trump Campaign

Donald Trump accomplished more in one term than anybody thought possible. He managed to make even many “never Trump” Republicans see the light, with the way he went about business in the Oval Office. Unfortunately, Trump will not be able to serve a consecutive term and continue to expose government malfeasance. That being said, there’s still a whole lot POTUS can give us before leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the 20th.

Joe is quite the card, even after all these decades. WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

School Featured In ‘Remember the Titans’ Might Be Renamed ‘Kamala Harris High’

Great movie, terrible idea.

Giving Kamala Harris the title of vice president is pretty awful. Senator was bad enough. But now she’s going to be honored with her name on a school? What’s next? Forget Harriet Tubman and put the woman who slept her way into politics on the $20? From TDW: T.C. Williams High School, well known for its prominent role in the popular Disney film “Remember The Titans”, could soon be renamed as “Kamala Harris High School.” In November, the Alexandria City School Board voted unanimously to remove Williams’ name due to his support of segregation while serving as superintendent of the Alexandria, VA, school system. According to the school, Williams was a “staunch segregationist whose views could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” Students are being given the chance to vote. The final decision will be made in April. Other options the kids have to choose from are “George Floyd High School” and “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School.” If it came down to Kamala, George, or Ruth, you’d have to go with RBG High…right?? Here’s a clip from the film… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYp94Kk8AdE
