If You Loved the Mueller Report, Get Ready for the Sequel
The next James Bond movie should be called, "The Russia Hoax Never Dies"
The collapse of the Steele Dossier hasn't stopped the same smear machine from reviving it. Here's the New York Times.
"Donald J. Trump and his backers say revelations about the Steele dossier show the Russia investigation was a “hoax.” That is not what the facts indicate."
Speaking of "the facts", even Rep. Schiff admitted that Mueller was non-compos mentis.
Mueller, now 76, was appointed special counsel in May 2017 after former President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Although Schiff writes that he pursued Mueller to deliver his July 2019 testimony , the reality was "heartbreaking" to Schiff when he struggled to answer basic questions.
"Had I known how much he had changed, I would not have pursued his testimony with such vigor — in fact, I would not have pursued it at all," Schiff wrote in his upcoming book Midnight in Washington, according to CNN.
"No questions calling for a narrative answer," Schiff told the committee, according to his book. "No multipart questions. If you think your question may be too long, it is. Cut it down."
Spare me the heartbreak. Schiff knew that Mueller was incompetent to conduct anything and instead of admitting that, dragged out the massive scam for partisan purposes. The mere fact that Mueller is out there or that the report bearing his name found nothing, won't stop the dead horse beaters from taking another whack at it.
An unpublished investigative compilation sometimes referred to as the "Alternative Mueller Report" has been located in Justice Department files and could be released soon, according to a letter filed in federal court Thursday.
A top deputy to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann, revealed in a book he published last year that the team he headed prepared a summary of all its work — apparently including details not contained in the final report made public in 2019.
The book in question reportedly scored a $1.5 million payday. And for that kind of cash, you've gotta deliver something.
"At least for posterity, I had all the [team] members ... write up an internal report memorializing everything we found, our conclusions, and the limitations on the investigation, and provided it to the other team leaders as well as had it maintained in our files," wrote Weissmann in "Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation."
The reference prompted the New York Times to submit a Freedom of Information Act request for the document in January and to follow up in July with a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
Lawyers from the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan told Judge Katherine Polk Failla in a letter Thursday that officials have figured out what document Weissmann was alluding to and have begun reviewing it for possible release.
Well after the point where no one is even pretending that the Mueller report had anything to do with Mr. M, they're going to try to revive it yet again. The New York Times needs the clicks and the Dems need to keep pushing their conspiracy theories to tamper with elections and censor opposition speech.
