Can the investigators be investigated too? This has been the question on the minds of most Americans, especially after the 45th Democratically elected President of the country was subjected to a witch hunt for 2 years and millions of dollars wasted on what proved to be the biggest conspiracy in the United States.
Rep. Jim Jordan said Thursday that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s failure to answer many important questions underscores the importance of the Justice Department’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. This could drag Bob Mueller, the supposed reputable Special counsel, into the mud where he actually belongs.
Jordan, R-Ohio, grilled Mueller on Capitol Hill Wednesday, accusing him of selective prosecution methods and promising Attorney General Bill Barr would get to the truth.
“The president was falsely accused of conspiracy. The FBI does a 10-month investigation and James Comey – when we deposed him a year ago, told us at that point they had nothing. You do a 22-month investigation. At the end of that 22 months, you find no conspiracy and what [do] the Democrats want to do — they want to keep investigating. They want to keep going,” Jordan said in a heated hearing at the Capitol Hill.
“Maybe a better course of action is to figure out how the false accusations started. Maybe it’s to go back and actually figure out why Joseph Mifsud was lying to the FBI and … that’s exactly what Bill Barr’s doing. And thank goodness for that. That’s exactly what the attorney general is doing … and they’re going to find out why we went through this three-year saga and get to the bottom of it.”
Robert Mueller had condemned Attorney General William Barr for misrepresenting his work, that is the infamous Bob Mueller’s report; saying, if they hadn’t found Trump guilty of committing a crime, they would have said so in the report. Meanwhile the report didn’t highlight any crimes committed by the President or his campaign. This alone leaves Mueller’s reputation hanging by the thread.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Attorney General William Barr claimed Congressional Democrats were creating a “public spectacle” by subpoenaing Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election “I’m not sure what purpose is served by dragging him up there and trying to grill him,” the Attorney General said of the Mueller’s hearing.
