Mueller To Testify

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 27, 2019

         FORMER SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER HAS AGREED TO TESTIFY JULY 17 BEFORE TWO HOUSE COMMITTEES ABOUT HIS TWO-YEAR INVESTIGATION OF ALLEGED COLLUSION BETWEEN RUSSIA AND THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. THE ANNOUNCEMENT CAME FROM TWO COMMITTEE CHAIRMEN WHO ISSUED A SUBPOENA COMPELLING HIS APPEARANCE.

         THIS WILL BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR REPUBLICANS TO ASK ABOUT DETAILS BEHIND THE INVESTIGATION. FOR EXAMPLE, DID MUELLER RELY ON THE BOGUS STEELE DOSSIER THAT LED TO A FISA WARRANT AND SPYING ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN TO LEGITIMIZE HIS INVESTIGATION?

         DEMOCRATS, OF COURSE, WILL FOCUS ON MUELLER’S STATEMENT IN HIS 400-PLUS PAGE REPORT THAT SUGGESTED THE ONLY REASON HE DIDN’T RECOMMEND AN OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE CHARGE AGAINST THE PRESIDENT IS THAT JUSTICE DEPARTMENT POLICY SAYS A SITTING PRESIDENT CANNOT BE INDICTED. OF COURSE IF THERE WAS NO COLLUSION, THERE CAN’T HAVE BEEN ANYTHING TO OBSTRUCT. DEMOCRATS AND THEIR MEDIA COLLEAGUES WILL SEE IT DIFFERENTLY, BUT THEY COULD LOSE THIS CONFRONTATION AND I HOPE THEY DO SO VOTERS CAN FOCUS ON REAL ISSUES. I’M CAL THOMAS.
