Serial liar, Adam Schiff, who appeared nightly, mostly on CNN to declare that he had seen clear evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, and who eventually was proven to have lied to the American people constantly, now says he regrets calling Robert Mueller to testify before Congress because he was mentally infirm. Does he also regret voting for Biden for the same reason?
Speaking in an interview with NPR, Schiff admitted he regretted serving Mueller a subpoena to testify. I think the real reason he regrets it is because he made the Democrats look like fools. He claimed that Trump was not exonerated because his inquisition failed miserably because they could find no evidence of his crimes.
Maybe that’s because he committed no crimes? No DA in the world would make that statement about any defendant who was not prosecuted due to no evidence of guilt.
“He is, I think, one of the greatest public servants, a decorated Vietnam veteran, a man with impeccable integrity who served as FBI director and distinguished himself in every way. But he was not the same man I knew.”
That is another lie because Mueller was well known for falsely prosecuting defendants, he either knew were innocent or shouldn’t have known was innocent. In two notable cases, he and the US government were sued for falsely accusing innocent people of crimes. Those two lawsuits cost the taxpayers $108 million dollars.
Schiff described Mueller’s testimony as “painful” and admitted he would not have pushed for Mueller’s testimony in hindsight.
I did understand immediately why his staff had been so protective and why they were so reluctant to have him testify. And I immediately told our members we need to cut down our questions. We can’t ask for narrative answers. We need to be very precise in what we ask. We need to have the page references of the report ready. And it was painful. Honestly, it was painful.
Earlier in the interview, Schiff told NPR he pressured Mueller to testify, essentially through coercion, sending the former FBI director a note telling him that testifying was his duty to America.
As the Washington Examiner’s Becket Adams observed of Schiff’s newest remarks:
To be clear, no medical professional has publicly stated any such thing about Mueller’s mental state. No doctor who has examined Mueller has said the man’s mind has gone soft. Schiff — who peddled several major lies during the Russian collusion craze, including that he had personally seen evidence proving the then-president conspired with Moscow to steal the election — simply alleges Mueller’s mind has slipped. For good measure, the California congressman dresses up his baseless assertion in faux concern.
