Democrats believe Robert Mueller’s July 17th public testimony will be the key to turning the tide on public opinion about impeachment.
Anti-Trump forces believe once the public sees and hears Mueller lay out his findings, Americans will demand Congress remove President Trump from office.
But William Barr shut down Robert Mueller’s plan to impeach Donald Trump with these two words.
Attorney General William Barr spoke publicly about Mueller’s upcoming testimony with the Associated Press.
Barr made it clear that he found the idea of hauling Mueller before Congress ridiculous.
The Attorney General also ridiculed Mueller’s testimony as being the Democrats pathetic attempt to create a “public spectacle.”
The Associated Press exclusively reports on their interview with Attorney General Barr:
Attorney General William Barr on Monday accused Democrats of trying to create a “public spectacle” by subpoenaing Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify before Congress about the Russia investigation.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Barr said the Justice Department would support Mueller if he decides he “doesn’t want to subject himself” to congressional testimony. Barr also said the Justice Department would seek to block any attempt by Congress to subpoena members of the special counsel’s team.
There’s no indication that Mueller does not wish to appear before Congress on July 17. But he put lawmakers on notice that any testimony he gives will not go beyond his 448-page report that was released in April. At a news conference in May, Mueller said the team chose the words in the report carefully and that the work speaks for itself.
“I’m not sure what purpose is served by dragging him up there and trying to grill him,” the Associated Press also reported Barr telling them.
“I don’t think Mueller should be treated that way or subject himself to that, if he doesn’t want to.”
Mueller is not likely to add any new information to the public record.
The special counsel already stated that he intended for the report to act as his testimony.
“Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. It contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself. And the report is my testimony,” Mueller told the press back in May.
Democrats were left grasping for straws.
Mueller’s report sucked the wind out of their impeachment balloon by presenting no evidence of criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as no determination on obstruction of justice.
Ever since, the polls have consistently shown a clear majority of Americans oppose impeaching President Trump.
But feeling the pressure from their unhinged base, more and more Democrats have come out in favor of impeachment.
So they orchestrated what Attorney General Barr deemed a “public spectacle” as a last-ditch effort to bring the public to their side on impeachment.
