  1. It appears to me that Mueller is ignorant of what is in that report.
    WHY? Because he was only selected as “head” of it to be a FIGURE-head, to make it appear to be a “non-partisan” investigation, why Hillary-connected Democrats did the dirty work.
    Watching him stammer his was through the questioning is proof that his only task was to sign the finished product.

    It didn’t work. It flopped.” ~U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)
