The Mueller cover up
...Gaetz does a good job of challenging Mueller on his failure to pursue obvious evidence of Russian collusion by people employed by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. Mueller's attempt to dodge Gaetz's questions was feeble statements of "it was now within my purview" when it clearly was and should have been. He also points out that the crimes he charged Paul Manafort were not within his purview either.
The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel wrote an excellent editorial entitled “What Mueller Was Trying to Hide,” in which she argues that the investigation was about protecting the actual miscreants in the collusion hoax. Strassel wrote:
The most notable aspect of the Mueller report was always what it omitted: the origins of this mess…The Mueller report authors studiously wrote around the dossier, mentioning it only in perfunctory terms. The report ignored Mr. Steele’s paymaster, Fusion GPS, and its own ties to Russians. It also ignored Fusion’s paymaster, the Clinton campaign, and the ugly politics behind the dossier hit job. Mr. Mueller’s testimony this week put to rest any doubt that this sheltering was deliberate.
In his opening statement he declared that he would not “address questions about the opening of the FBI’s Russia investigation, which occurred months before my appointment, or matters related to the so-called Steele Dossier.” The purpose of those omissions was obvious, as those two areas go to the heart of why the nation has been forced to endure years of collusion fantasy.
She points out that Mueller refused to discuss the dossier because it “predated his tenure and is the subject of a Justice Department investigation.” Both excuses are dishonest. “Nearly everything Mr. Mueller investigated predated his tenure, and there’s no reason the Justice Department probe bars Mr. Mueller from providing a straightforward, factual account of his team’s handling of the dossier.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) questioned Mueller about why his report failed to address these issues. His exchange with the former special counsel was one of the highlights of the hearing during which he answered all of Gaetz’ with some variation of “not my purview.”
