‘My Lord’: Mueller Gets Crushed for Claiming He Was ‘Not Familiar’ with Firm Behind Steele Dossier

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller is being crushed after he claimed that he was “not familiar” with the firm behind the infamous Steele dossier that helped launch the FBI investigation into the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.

During his long-awaited hearing with the House Judiciary Committee, Mueller was asked by Ohio Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) about the controversial Trump Tower meeting and the research associated with it from FusionGPS compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, which alleged connections between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

The Steele dossier helped with securing the FISA warrant to investigate former Trump campaign aide Carter Page in 2016, and was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s (D) presidential campaign.

“When discussing the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, you reference ‘the firm that produced the Steele reporting.’ The name of that firm was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?” asked Chabot.

Mueller asked for the page number while flipping through his massive report, which the Ohio Republican replied with, “Page 103. That’s correct — Volume II. When you talk about the firm that produced the Steele reporting, the name of the firm that produced that was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?”

Mueller responded by saying that he was “not familiar” with the firm.

Watch the video here:

Some Twitter users were not too happy with Mueller’s response, with one exclaiming “my Lord” in a tweet.

Another called the response “hilarious” and “a total, complete, apocalyptic disaster for the conspiracy-theory Democrats.”

Another user called out Mueller, calling his statement “transparent obfuscation.”

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said that Chabot’s “question was very important” as it showed that Mueller was “uninformed about the information.”

Check out some of the reactions:

Mueller’s response to Chabot’s question could prove troubling for the former special counsel following his grueling day of back-to-back hearings with the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

Absolutely absurd.

Next, the FISA Judges need to call in EVERY person who signed off on the four illegal FISA warrants and have them explain the FRAUD they perpetrated on the Court. Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein et al. AG Barr, get to work to begin sweeping the trash out of D.C.

If you were listening, Mueller stated more than once that the counterintelligence investigation was NOT under his PURVIEW and is an ONGOING investigation.—-on going, as in Mueller stating FBI CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING. Ongoing as under investigation by the Inspector General. What word(s) would be tripping up these folks, Houston? Purview? Ongoing? Currently under investigation?

I spent most of my day watching the testimony even going so far as to let my dog out in the backyard versus going for our regular walk. As coincidence would have it at the exact moment that Mueller uttered those words my dog took a massive crap.

‘Nuff said.

Maybe he is not familiar with them because he did not write the report and slept through most of the investigation. andrew weissmann, anybody?
