Except for the most delusional Kool-Aid drinking Democrats (looking at you, Rachel Maddow!) their side knows they had their butts handed to them at the Mueller hearings.
Weak, confused answers leave the public wondering whether he REALLY lead the investigation, or was just some other guy’s figurehead sock puppet.
Poor Michael Moore.
He was so upset by the hearings that he tweeted about them. The president was enjoying the spectacle and couldn’t help himself. He saw MOORE’s tweet and shared it.
Even Michael Moore agrees that the Dems and Mueller blew it! https://t.co/ZFPb50vi4v

Ok, so what was the game plan for the Democrats? Mueller had handed them a dry document to work with that nobody cares about and even fewer have even read. Since nobody ‘read the book’ they were hoping ‘the movie’ would get better traction.
Don’t forget, this is EXACTLY what they tried to accomplish before, with this train wreck:

‘Shockingly’, that approach failed. Badly.
Hopefully, they could get Mueller to read it in his own words and add some plausible gravitas and drama to their anti-Trump attacks.
Republican twitter thought that plan crashed and burned in a hilarious fail. Even David Axelrod agreed, well, except for the ‘hilarious’ part:
This is delicate to say, but Mueller, whom I deeply respect, has not publicly testified before Congress in at least six years. And he does not appear as sharp as he was then.

Ted Lieu, predictably, showed us usual contempt for facts, truth and the American public:
Did we have special effects, soaring music and a laser light show? No.
But the @HouseJudiciary Committee today did establish that @realDonaldTrump committed multiple acts of Obstruction of Justice. Those are felonies. We have a felon in the White House. #MuellerHearings https://t.co/uBUF6RyJ9j

Ted Lieu also posited a falsehood so egregious that Mueller himself went out of his way to correct it in a later series of questioning after the fact:
In a blow to Dems, Mueller clarified earlier remarks he made to Judic's Rep. Ted Lieu about his decision not to indict Trump bc of OLC opinion.
“That is not the correct way to say it,” Mueller said.We did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime.”

We remind Ted that without a finding of ‘guilty’ even those who have had actual criminal charges placed against them are merely called ‘accused’ and not ‘felons’. Dummy.
We remind you that after what, $30M worth of investigation and FBI horsepower, the evidence STILL did not rise to the level of indicating he had likely committed a crime.
Big question: Can the Members of Congress (especially Dems) shut up long enough to let Mueller talk, or will they fill the time with their own bloviation? #MuellerHearings

Narrator: No, no they couldn’t.
Jake Tapper on Mueller: "There were times in the hearing where he was sharp as a tack. But we can't avoid the fact that there were times when he was not…there were times when it seemed he was unfamiliar with parts of the investigation."

Of course, the media dutifully did what they so often do.
As one example, NowThis (originally founded by two Huffpo execs) stepped in to shield their beloved Democrats when they got in over their heads and tried to rescue the narrative.
In this case, that required perpetuating the very same lie Mueller himself just went out of his way to correct. Great job, guys.
Wouldn’t Pravda be proud!
Rep. Ted Lieu: ‘The reason, again, that you did not indict Donald Trump is because…you can not indict a sitting president, correct?’

We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
