    Mueller is no longer a "prosecutor". He is a WITNESS!

  • DATING HARLEY QUINN Post author

  • Daniel Schaeffer Post author

    I can hardly wait to see what happens when the House GOP gets filled with carefully rehearsed indignation and starts insulting Mueller to his face.

  • Kevin Jacobs Post author

    The real question is , will this pencil neck shifty finally show the proof of collusion , heโ€™s said heโ€™s had for over two years ?

  • blue4me43 Post author

    Finally we the American's get to hear Mr Mueller. Thanks to Democratic Congress.

  • Lisa O Post author

    Mueller and his staff should definitely testify. however it's not good that he has to give both the public and private testimony back to back on the same day. he should give one testimony, then 1 or 2 days later, have him give his second testimony. this is so that the committee will have quality time to review and discuss his testimony afterwards. more importantly, to give Mueller and others who have to testify at least a day and a night to rest between testimonies because testifying may be stressful.

  • harry smarts Post author

    meka willy and lawrence and rachel maddick are spies omg morning jo jo is fake cover even nicole wallace been doing staff omg rumor msnbc cover up was wallace trying to do muller and her huby found out prison time

  • Wond Erful Post author

    Trump cannot stop Mueller testifying according to Neal Katyal in some discussion many weeks ago on MSNBC

    if I remember rightly:

    the president is powerless to stop the special counsel testifying PROVIDED the special counsel has resigned,
    furthermore they designed the system so that the special counsel wouldnt be financially disadvantaged by resigning,

    he didnt explain how they prevent him being financially disadvantaged by resigning,

    and my interpretation is that while he was special counsel, he was still under the DOJ,
    but by resigning he can dodge the DOJ

  • Errol Mills Post author

  • Luna Azule Post author

    Hummm, Mueller is friends with Barr who is friends with Trump. WHY ON EARTH WOULD HE TESTIFY? That would mean doing something he was paid to do for US, not for a golf round with Atgolf Twittler.

    I don't understand why congress hesitates to send subpoenas. Why not routinely start with one? The courts do. Courts send subpoenas right away when calling for documents or witnesses. Congress could save months this way.

  • Bill E Post author

    It will be interesting to know when Muller knew there was no collusion and then strung it out to tempt the president to obstruct. Which we know he couldnโ€™t bait him to do so. No collusion… no obstruction!

  • Bill E Post author

    Delusional!

  • Brad Christy Post author

    and what exactly are we going to learn from Mueller testifying….?

    That the Democrats still canโ€™t face the fact that they lost the 2016 election. Duh…..

Hopefully we Californians who love Trump will be able to overcome the political crimes and joke that is our elections here next time…..since we have thousands of homeless insane and addicts, illegal aliens and rats infesting our streets and yet another new gasoline tax coming on July 6th, while gas is already over $4/gal. in some places, like San Diego.

    You guys ever listen to yourselves? I waist my time to check-in to see if their is even one truthful sentence on this channel or it's comments but year after year not one sentence gets waisted without twisting it in to pure propaganda. You can't be as dumb as you sound so if you know your lying you must be traders. Some of you say President Trump will start a war to stay in office. Your side has been trying to start one in order to remove him. Let's start a new game show. Your side picks one fake news sentence you think is true. The right side will explain why it is not. This way you learn how you've been brainwashed so we can work together to save life instead of abort.

    And thank God Mueller is a man who will follow the law but I bet because Donald Trump knows that he was not exonerated he's going to go to the extremes to block this subpoena and you know why Donald Trump is because Donald Trump know that his attorney general Barr and him told a guy Gannett lie about him being exonerated and by Donald Trump knowing that he is lying about he is exonerated he's going to the extremes to try the block Mueller from testifying if you believe this and know this hit me up if you believe and you know Donald Trump told a lie about him being exonerated and what Donald Trump's going to do because he knows he lied is going to try to block that subpoena because he know that he lied and he's going to try to block it to stop Mueller from testifying because he knows he lied about being exonerated hitting me up because this is what's going to happen and say Yes Donald Trump knows in his attorney general board knows that they lied about Donald Trump being exonerated and Donald Trump is going to try to do everything in his attorney general to block Mueller subpoena from testifying because they both know they lied about Donald Trump being exonerated this is true why I bet this is what happened

  • Alta Montgomery Post author

    Thank you Mueller cuz the only way we going to get the truth if you testify since we can't get the original Mueller report that Donald Trump and his attorney general Barr is blocking to cover up Donald Trump's crimes the American people is thankful that we have you who will stand up for the American people until the truth thank you Mueller

  • Alta Montgomery Post author

    Mueller American public love you and we need you because we can trust you to tell the American people the truth well we can not trust any Republican under guest president or in the Republican Senate or on any Republican committees to tell the American people the truth all of them are criminals working with criminals to cover up the truth in the lies that's why the American public I need you to testify on our behalf that we get the truth we paid for the truth and you the only person to give us the truth you and your prosecutors and we would never give up on trying to find that truth because we know how criminals work to cover up their criminal activities

  • C Rizzy Post author

    This is yet another political stunt to attack Trump. BTW Schiff it is Barr's JOB to decide on the Mueller report you imbecile.
    This is going to be bad for Democrats. The Republicans have much more to gain here. Mueller has to explain stacking his team with Democrats, the FISA court fraud, The deleted Strzok emails, the lack of Russian interference investigation regarding the Russian dossier purchased by Hillary's campaign. No investigation of the illegal spying on the Trump campaign. Mueller is going to be in the hot seat with very tough questions to answer.

    Bet he doesn't say "No collusion, no obstruction" or that Trump, the Self Made Fraud, is exonerated.

  • fastermx Post author

    Mueller knows better than to testify willingly – or even under a "friendly" subpoena – the Rs would run with it and claim he is partisan.
    Some aspects can't be made public because of ongoing investigations and criminal cases, and sometimes maybe even of national security. More in-depth questions can be asked in private session. Since Dems have a majority in the House, we have to put our faith in their integrity in those committees. I think they are fully aware of the peril America is in, and will do their best. If they don't, we're lost.

  • fastermx Post author

    That subpoena should have required him to bring the entire unredacted report and testify on it, except where it can't be made public for good reasons. But the committees are entitled to full and unredacted copies, starting the day Mueller submitted his report.
    Barr doesn't have (and never had) the authority to decide what Congress could see.

    IMPEACH INDICT – IMPRISON – Since the USA now has their own Hitler in #45ย  not one politician, who had the power to stop this (Im talking to you Nancy Pelosi)ย  should be surprised and not take responsibility , for the mass graves filled with children, they will find when this is all over. Isn't that what happened with the German version of Hitler in World War II. The ONLY difference is the WWII atrocities were mostly done to adults. Ours will be far worse because they will be children and babies. The best indicator of future behavior is past behavior. #45 will stop at nothing and is using Hitlers playbook. Don't think for a second that this will not happen. It probably has already.ย  St. Philomena and St. Anthony protect the children

    WILL THE RIGHT QUESTION'S BE ASK ? (1) was collusion with russia
    investigated since he left that up to congress . he stated that his
    investigation was based that a sitting president could not be indicted
    of crimes so was the investigation of trump limited by that and only
    looked at russia's tampering with election and others contacts setting
    trump aside from those investigations. (2) why was trump jr not
    questioned if any investigation of collusion was seriously looked into
    im guessing its because of my first question !
