Everyone thought when Robert Mueller turned in his final report that his quest to bring down Donald Trump ended in failure.
That turned out not to be the case.
Robert Mueller has one more trick up his sleeve to impeach President Trump.
Now that Mueller’s report is in and the American people can see that Mueller found no evidence of collusion with Russia and declined to bring obstruction of justice charges, impeachment is less popular than ever.
Democrats and Mueller’s team are creating a fake scandal surrounding a supposed cover up of Mueller’s “true findings” because Attorney General William Barr won’t break the law and release an unredacted version of the Mueller Report.
The latest salvo on this front was House Judiciary Committee member David Cicilline announcing his committee has targeted May 15 as the day for Mueller to testify.
Earlier Sunday, a Judiciary Committee member, Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), told “Fox News Sunday” that Mueller was tentatively scheduled to testify on May 15, but he later walked back that remark on social media.
“Just to clarify: we are aiming to bring Mueller in on the 15th, but nothing has been agreed to yet,” Cicilline wrote online. “That’s the date the Committee has proposed, and we hope the Special Counsel will agree to it. Sorry for the confusion.”
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) has said the committee is eyeing May 15 for Mueller to testify. The committee did not immediately respond to Cicilline’s comments.
The White House, Cicilline said in the Fox interview, has indicated it would not interfere with Mueller’s attempt to testify and “we hope that won’t change.”
Democrats are hoping Mueller will explain further his belief that Trump committed obstruction of justice crimes but that the Department of Justice guidelines prevented him from indicting a sitting President.
They also want Mueller to help advance the phony “cover up” scandal by testifying that Barr did not adhere to the anti-Trump talking points Mueller scripted for the report’s release.
In both cases, Democrats are counting on Mueller to develop new threads they can use for impeachment.
