Nadler Denies That Mueller’s Testimony Was a Mistake Despite Poll Showing Majority Found It to Be a Waste

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) denied that having former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify in front of the community was a mistake, although a poll shows a majority of Americans found it to be a waste of time.

During a Sunday interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Nadler was asked by host George Stephanopoulos on whether or not he believed it was a “mistake” to “force” the former special counsel testify in front of his committee.

Nadler said that he did not view having Mueller testify as a mistake and instead believed that his testimony was “very important” as it “broke the lie” being told by President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr.

“No. I think it was very important that he testify because he established very clearly — he broke the lie that the president and the attorney general have been saying to the American people for the last, I don’t know, seven or eight weeks.”

Watch the video here:

Nadler went on to claim that Trump and Barr “misrepresented” Mueller’s report into Russian election interference and that it was “important” for the former special counsel to “get up there and say just that.”

“Since [Mueller’s] report was issued, the attorney general and the president misrepresented that report, lied to the American people about it,” said the House Judiciary chairman. “[They] said that the report found no collusion, no obstruction, and totally exonerated the president. All those three statements are lies. It was very important for Mueller to get up there and say just that.”

While the House Judiciary Chairman may not view Mueller’s testimony as a mistake, the majority of Americans sure did.

According to a new ABC poll, 60 percent of self-described independents viewed Mueller’s testimonies to the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees as a waste of time and taxpayer dollars. Less than two percent of Republicans saw value come out of Mueller’s testimonies.

Only four percent of Democrats, however, said it was a waste.

Jerroldo may as well revisit the Al Caponè ‘vault’ because there was nothing there either.

Nads is useless and flailing. Mueller and his team of Dim partisans could not find anything to charge, not even with the “Trumped” up allegations of collusion.

Stop wasting OUR dollars and do you f’ing job of legislating. Here’s a thought: persuade your party leader(s) whether Nancy or the Twisted Sisters to come up with policies that actually help their constituents, not Palestine, not Somalia, nor criminal trespassers.

Who knows, maybe you’ll win an election. Your newbie Moderates will appreciate it.

Was it Einstein who said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”? What incite into the future. Nadler should get the t shirt.

Mueller didn’t take his meds before appearing b-4 Congress and it looks like Nadler never does take his meds instead he puts them in his pants.
