Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway reminded American taxpayers that their money will be going to fund former Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s hearing on Russian election interference later this week.
During an interview with Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Conway was asked for her thoughts regarding Mueller’s upcoming testimony to the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees taking place on Wednesday.
Conway responded by saying that she wanted taxpayers “to see” how the Democrat-controlled House “is spending their money” and blasted the upcoming hearings as “a do-over of the do-over of the do-over.”
She also claimed that some Democratic lawmakers said they wanted the former special counsel to “read from his own report.”

“I want the taxpayers to see the way the Democratic Congress is spending their money day in and day out. A do-over of the do-over of the do-over. Mueller made clear in late May in his own press conference that his report is his testimony. I saw this yesterday, [a] Democratic congressmen quoted as saying ‘I want Mueller to read from his own report.'”
“Ladies and gentlemen, taxpayers, you are paying for this nonsense,” added Conway.
The counselor to the president continued on to blast the Democrats for not working to “fix” the U.S. immigration system, infrastructure, or drug prices, and for not voting on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
“The same congress that won’t do that is spending your money. They work for you. This is your money,” continued Conway. “You already paid for the Mueller report and the Mueller investigation. Now, they want Bob Mueller. They want to drag him before Congress and have him read out loud. Bob Mueller book on tape, courtesy of the taxpayer. I don’t think so.”
As IJR News previously reported, the House Democrats are planning to focus their time with Mueller during his testimony on examples of actions that President Donald Trump undertook which could have resulted in criminal charges for obstruction of justice for any other American.
