Former special counsel Robert Mueller appeared confused during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee. He frequently asked for questions to be repeated and declined to answer over 100 times. He claimed he was ‘not familiar’ with Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that produced the Steele Dossier for the Hillary Clinton campaign. That was the key ‘evidence’ used to initiate his investigation that cost at least $25-million in taxpayer money, and two and a-half years of time.

Congressman Louis Gohmert said that he believes Mueller’s performance was partially an act, designed to run out the 5-minute clock to avoid answering more questions. He says Mueller intentionally drew out the investigation to affect the 2018 midterm elections and that Mueller impeded justice by seeding the investigation with people who were biased against Trump. -GEG

REP. STEVE CHABOT (R-OH): Thank you. Director Mueller, my Democratic colleagues were very disappointed in your report. They were expecting you to say something along the lines of here’s why President Trump deserves to be impeached, much as Ken Starr did relative to President Clinton back about 20 years ago. Well, you didn’t, so their strategy had to change.

Now they allege that there’s plenty of evidence in your report to impeach the president, but the American people just didn’t read it. And this hearing today is their last best hope to build up some sort of groundswell across America to impeach President Trump. That’s what this is really all about today.



Now, a few questions. On page 103 of Volume 2 of your report, when discussing the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, you referenced “the firm in that produced the Steele reporting.” The name of that firm was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?

ROBERT MUELLER, FORMER SPECIAL COUNSEL: And you’re on page 103?

CHABOT: 103, that’s correct, Volume 2. When you talk about the–the firm that produced the Steele reporting, the name of the firm that produced that was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?

MUELLER: I–I’m not familiar with–with that. I–could you–

CHABOT: –Let me just help you–

MUELLER: –Can you–

CHABOT: –It was. It’s not–it’s not a trick question or anything. It was Fusion GPS.
Now, Fusion GPS produced the opposition research document widely–widely known as the Steele dossier. And the owner of Fusion GPA was someone named Glenn Simpson. Are you familiar with that name?

MUELLER: This is outside my purview.
