That was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s explanation today about why she only watched a “little bit” of the Mueller hearings.
Or the horror show was too much for her.
Here’s a factoid/tidbit for you people that still somehow think Russia colluded with Trump to do anything. According to the Mueller report itself, Putin’s entire leadership team began reaching out after the election — to publicly known Trump team members BECAUSE none of them had any Trump team contact numbers before the election.
It is impossible in this day and age, to coordinate a conspiracy with people you do not even have contact info for, and evade a thorough investigation by a former FBI Director.
I must admit, although Mueller never impressed me — he looked especially confused today.
Mueller contradicted himself so often, the FBI should arrest him for lying to a Federal official, (like that poor Martha Stewart woman) since he had to be lying when he repeatedly testified in writing that collusion exists as a chargeable offense — and is synonymous for conspiracy and then also testified twice orally — that it was not synonymous, and/or he wouldn’t talk about it. Whatever the hell that means.
Mueller and Comey have that in common, they just make up new shit “I’m not going to talk about that” and no one calls them on it. Mueller didn’t plead the fifth today, he didn’t say it was classified, he didn’t answer anything either, he just hid behind stuff like it was “Beyond my purview” (more lies) and that “doesn’t exonerate” nonsense, which he also made up, and then got called on that, real bad.
He looked like he was having a mini-stroke right during the hearing.
If an investigator can’t find evidence to charge you with a crime — and you aren’t Mueller — you are not legally permitted to comment about how this does or does not exonerate the person.
The optics and fact set on this Mueller investigation, and Mueller’s testimony — are so bad, Pelosi spelled out her rules to the Dem Caucus today, Pelosi explained that if you want to talk impeachment in your district, feel free, BUT, do not criticize other members who don’t — and do not even say you are for impeachment because it is a patriotic thing to do — since this implies members not for impeachment — are not patriotic.
This is complete capitulation. Complete. Those instructions are as close to Pelosi saying:
“I surrender, you’ve beaten me Trump!” as I’ve seen yet.
I have Trump at 338 in electoral votes right now, and by the end of summer, barring any big surprises, he should be north of 350.
