Trump Weighs In On Whether Or Not Mueller Should Testify

After reports stated that Democratic Judiciary Committee members are trying to nab Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify on May 15, President Trump decided to express his thoughts on the matter and stated quite bluntly that the man should not under any circumstances testify.

The president equates the idea of having Mueller testify as giving the Democrats a redo on the topic of Russian collusion, which the special counsel’s two year investigation said there was no evidence of upon its recent release.

As Politico noted Sunday, Democratic Judiciary Committee member Rep. David Cicilline (RI) told “Fox News Sunday” that the committee has tentatively scheduled Mueller to testify on May 15; the congressman later issued a clarification on Twitter. “Just to clarify: we are aiming to bring Mueller in on the 15th, but nothing has been agreed to yet,” wrote Cicilline on Sunday. “That’s the date the Committee has proposed, and we hope the Special Counsel will agree to it. Sorry for the confusion.”

While the White House has said that they will not attempt to prevent Mueller’s testimony, Trump took the Twitter to express his disapproval of Democrats trying to get “redos” on the special counsel’s final report.

“After spending more than $35,000,000 over a two year period, interviewing 500 people, using 18 Trump Hating Angry Democrats & 49 FBI Agents — all culminating in a more than 400 page Report showing NO COLLUSION – why would the Democrats in Congress now need Robert Mueller to testify,” he said in a series of Mueller-themed tweets (tweets below). “Are they looking for a redo because they hated seeing the strong NO COLLUSION conclusion? There was no crime, except on the other side (incredibly not covered in the Report), and NO OBSTRUCTION. Bob Mueller should not testify. No redos for the Dems!”

Politico suggests that if Trump’s tweet is “interpreted by the attorney general as a direct order to stifle Mueller’s testimony,” it “could set up the most consequential legal question related to the special counsel’s probe: whether executive privilege can be used to stop an executive branch employee from testifying about an investigation into the president.”

Trump seems to be right on the money about this whole fiasco. This is nothing more than attempts by Democrats to get a “do over” on the Russian collusion nonsense, which despite having a two-year investigation turn up zero evidence, they still can’t seem to let go.

Progressives are still placing all of their bets on having Trump removed from office over this stuff, which isn’t going to happen. They are so desperate to impeach him. Why?

Because they know that Americans don’t want their policies and that if they face off against Trump next year in the presidential election, they’re likely going to lose and lose big.

So they’d rather remove him than face him down, than to listen to the American people and abandon their extreme left-wing views and go back to the center. That says all you need to know about these folks.
