The Mueller investigation was not a pursuit of the truth, it was a sham

Mueller’s Ignorance Of Fusion GPS Proves His Investigation Was A Sham

Robert Mueller’s ignorance when queried about Fusion GPS exposed both the proceedings and the special counsel probe as a sham.
It never made any sense that an investigation that was supposed to be about Russian interference with the 2016 election would ignore those responsible for the Steele dossier which was chocked full of Russian lies.
Yet here he was, telling Congress that Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier were outside of his “purview.” But the Steele dossier built the entire case of Russia collusion. It justified the four Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act surveillance orders on former Trump adviser Carter Page. It detailed supposed connections between Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen and the Kremlin. Had anyone truly believed there was collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia, they would have pulled every thread in the Steele dossier to see if something stuck.

Rep. Matt Gaetz knew this, and said to Mueller:

No, it is exactly your purview, Director Mueller. And here’s why. Only one or two things is possible. Either Steele made this whole thing up and there were never any Russians telling him of this vast criminal conspiracy that you didn’t find. Or Russians lied to Steele. Now, if Russians were lying to Steele to undermine our confidence in our duly elected president, that would seem to be precisely in your purview because in your opening you stated that the organizing principle was to fully and thoroughly investigate Russia’s interference. But you weren’t interested in whether Russians were interfering through Christopher Steele. And if Steele was lying, then you should have charged him with lying. But you say nothing about that in your report.
Muller tried to say it was not his job.  He was less than persuasive.
