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

Mueller gets what he deserves here.

Published

on

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!

Katie Hill Criticizes Paul Gosar For Epstein Tweets; Gosar Fires Back And Says ‘You Taught The Country What A ‘Throuple’ Was’

Published

on

Rep. Paul Gosar, Arizona, struck back at his former colleague Katie Hill after she ripped him for tweeting about the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein, a current hot topic and popular meme circulating around the Internet. Gosar’s burn was aimed at Hill’s recent controversy involving lewd photographs of her with a staffer who she had an inappropriate relationship with, noting that she taught the country what a “throuple” was. Here’s more from Fox News: Hill reprehended Gosar over a series of tweets that spelled out “Epstein didn’t kill himself,” a line that has been appearing in memes and on social media. Hill blasted him for “tweeting out real conspiracy theories.” “No[,] like this actually happened. Real members of Congress tweeting out real conspiracy theories. In an acrostic no less,” Hill tweeted. Gosar fired back, “You’re surprised by me? You single-handedly taught an entire country a new word. #throuple,” Gosar reacted. “And wth is up with that tattoo? Relax.” “Throuple,” which is a term to describe a three-person relationship, was the arrangement Hill reportedly had with her estranged husband and a female campaign staffer. Hill accused her estranged husband of leaking the nude photos as “revenge porn” amid their messy divorce. Hill’s attorneys also vehemently denied allegations made in a DailyMail story that one of the nude photos shows a “Nazi-era Iron Cross” tattoo. Gosar got a whole lot of attention on his Twitter account Wednesday after he let loose with a series of tweets he made in connection with the ongoing testimony of U.S. diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent as the first witnesses in the impeachment hearings against President Trump. The first letter of each of the tweets spells out “Epstein didn’t kill himself.” Rather clever, wouldn’t you agree?

First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps. The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president. Here’s more from Fox News: At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016. Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence. “My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1194710194166497281 There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in…
