Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday where he shared additional information concerning his 22-month investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and potential obstruction of justice committed by President Trump.
His testimony satisfied some congressional Democrats as they wanted Mueller to share with the American public who did not read his final report of its contents and conclusions but left many frustrated over Mueller’s inability to answer basic questions concerning the scope of the investigation or its origins.
Sidney Powell, the attorney who represents former Trump aide Michael Flynn, torched the testimony as “an embarrassment,” BizPac Review reports.
“It was just appalling from every perspective on every level,” she added.
“It was an embarrassment for Mr. Mueller to allow his credibility and integrity to be put behind this investigation build on a fraud,” Powell said.
Powell said the Department of Justice may be pursuing criminal ramifications against Mueller or others involved with the investigation.
Here’s more from BizPac Review:
A Mueller critic, Powell appeared on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” to discuss the Democrat-led dog an pony show that proved to be disastrous for them, in large part because Mueller was not very sharp and often appeared befuddled — the biggest take away seemed to be that Mueller did not seem to know what was in his own report.
When asked where it goes from here, Powell spoke of the need for “serious criminal ramifications” for those who orchestrated the Russian collusion hoax.
“Attorney General [William] Barr and [U.S. Attorney John]Durham have their work cut out for them,” Powell said. “Because to restore any faith in the justice system at all in this country and to restore the rule of law, they’re going to have to be serious criminal ramifications for the people who lied on the FISA warrants [and] abused power.”
Barr tapped Durham to lead a separate investigation into the origins of the bureau’s 2016 Russia case that laid the foundation for Mueller’s probe, In effect, to investigate the investigators.
“The future of our republic depends on restoring the rule of law,” Powell concluded, pointing to Barr’s responsibility to getting Americans to trust the nation’s top law enforcement agencies and their members.
