This video is the clearest example of the control Hannity, Fox News, and the Right-Wing Cabal have over the Republican Party. This should be scary.
It was great however watching Congressman Hakeem Jeffries use Mueller's responses to his questions. He used them to methodically make the immediate case for impeachment.
Fox News & Hannity are the GOP's masters
Recently Fox News, specifically Sean Hannity have been giving advice to Congresspeople. They had a specific list of questions following many Right-Wing conspiracy theories.
Key network players are urging Republican members of Congress to use their question time to promote the network’s conspiracy-minded counternarrative.
“For Republicans, this hearing is a golden opportunity to ask the questions that need to be asked to Robert Mueller to hold him accountable,” Hannity said during a July 12 segment on the hearings. “We -- you, we, the American people, we deserve answers to all the pressing questions that our government has totally ignored and the media mob has ignored.”
He then reeled off more than a dozen questions that Mueller “must answer.” Many of them revolved around the dossier and the composition of the special counsel’s team.
HANNITY: Mueller must answer, why did he hire a team full of Democratic donors, not one Republican available? Why would he ever hire in this case Hillary Clinton's former attorney?
Why did he hire this guy, Andrew Weissmann? A guy who has withheld exculpatory evidence in the past, a Clinton-loving partisan hack, he was there the night of Clinton's, oh, victory party that never happened. A record full of prosecutorial misconduct.
Why did Mueller have time to investigate, let's see, taxi medallions, loan applications, FARA violations, tax fraud, but he didn't look at the dirty dossier, the lying to a FISA court, the premeditated fraud committed on a court to spy on the presidential campaign? Why was the probe never into Hillary Clinton's bought-and-paid-for Russian lies? Or what about Christopher Steele, with his Russian lies that he put together? What about Glenn Simpson, Fusion GPS? What about the Clinton campaign's coordination with the government of Ukraine that we have pointed out?
Now, keep in mind people like Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, George Papadopoulos, all charged with crimes totally unrelated to collusion or conspiracy with Russia to impact the 2016 campaign. Yet, in an investigation supposedly about collusion and corruption, well, no one connected to Clinton, the DNC, their phony Russian sourced op research. How did you ignore all of that, Mr. Mueller?
Does Robert Mueller hate President Trump? Did he hire people that hate President Trump for a reason, then-candidate Trump? Now, is this why he pursued an investigation into obstruction even after there was no underlying crime of conspiracy or collusion?
And why is Mueller given contradictory statements on the topic of obstruction? Is he being pressured by Andrew Weissmann? Did he forget? Did he not remember what he said? Did he even write that 9 1/2 minute rambling press conference?
You know, at the end of the day, is Rob Mueller really proud of his 22-month witch hunt, that really did nothing than give fuel to what are rampant conspiracy theories, lies, propaganda, misinformation?MediaMatters
The Mueller Hearings are over now. Fox News and Hannity should be proud. Their GOP minions fulfilled their duties.
