IT'S MUELLER TIME!

IT'S MUELLER TIME!

News has just broken that, pursuant to a subpoena, former Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III will testify in open session before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17.

Now, I’ve been rather down on Mueller the past few days. This piece on Palmer Report sums up my feelings. I’ve always said that Mueller wouldn’t save us; but it seems that he could have done so much more and didn’t, either because he didn’t want to seem political, or because of pressure from higher ups.

But now he’s going to testify in open session before the relevant committees, and the chessboard has just been upended. Moron Hitler can’t stop him. Attorney General William Barr can’t stop him. There will be no White House lawyers objecting to questioning as there was for Hope Hicks’ testimony.

Mark it in your calendar, folks. July 17, 2019. (Which just happens to be two days before my birthday. What a wonderful present.)
