This is not going to go as Democrats have planned. It never seems to work out for them, lately. Mueller will only repeat what he already wrote in the report. It will be highly publicized, heavily watched, and totally disappointing to the left.
Unless he answers one question.
Before explaining what that question is, here’s the latest on Robert Mueller’s intentions to testify before the House Judiciary Committee:
Robert Mueller agrees to testify before House lawmakers July 17 after subpoena, Nadler and Schiff announce
Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17 after they subpoenaed the special counsel Tuesday, according to the committees’ chairmen, Reps. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
Congressional Democrats have fought to get access to Mueller and his unredacted report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether President Trump obstructed justice. Weeks of negotiations between House Democrats and the Justice Department ultimately ended with the subpoena.
Fox News has learned Mueller would appear only under a subpoena, which has been described as a “friendly” subpoena, one that in essence had been planned. Mueller is expected to stick to the “four corners” of his report.
As he said at his press conference, he plans on only answering questions with references to his report. But there’s one question that he seems to have already answered in an indirect way. If he answers it directly, it could be a serious problem for President Trump.
The question is this:
“Would you have recommended corruption charges based on the evidence if the person of interest wasn’t the President?”
If he answers that question in the affirmative, the Democrats have their primary talking point for the 2020 elections.
It is unlikely he will answer this question, but one never knows until it happens.
But there’s a danger to the Democrats as well. If Mueller testifies that he believes Trump should be impeached, whether directly or by inference as he did at his press conference, it will be very difficult to hold back the reins as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been doing. She’ll have to act or risk a coup in her own party. By acting on impeachment, she will be helping the President. He doesn’t want it to happen, but his team is aware that impeachment would be an unpopular play for the Democrats.
The Democrats are grasping at straws now. They can’t get anything to stick because it seems there is nothing interesting enough to the people to stick on the President. But that’s not stopping them from trying. And failing.
