QUESTION: Marty, it seems the Mueller’s testimony was really bad for the Democrats and it looks like Mueller refused to investigate the fact that Hillary paid for the Steele Dossier which started this whole investigation. How can Mueller investigate everything but not Hillary and the Steele Dossier?
ANSWER: You are correct. Mueller claimed ignorance. He was paid millions of dollars to investigate Hillary’s accusations based on the Steele Dossier but then claimed he never heard of the company that created that dossier. It is just not credible. If you are the head of such an investigation and you produce the 448 pages report, you should know everything from at the bare minimum a broad overview. He refused to implicate Hillary or the Democrats. This was purely political. Here is the transcript:
CHABOT: 103, that’s correct, Volume 2. When you talk about the–the firm that produced the Steele reporting, the name of the firm that produced that was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?
MUELLER: I–I’m not familiar with–with that. I–could you–
CHABOT: –Let me just help you–
MUELLER: –Can you–
CHABOT: –It was. It’s not–it’s not a trick question or anything. It was Fusion GPS.
Now, Fusion GPS produced the opposition research document widely–widely known as the Steele dossier. And the owner of Fusion GPA was someone named Glenn Simpson. Are you familiar with that name?
MUELLER: This is outside my purview.
CHABOT: Okay. Glenn Simpson was never mentioned in the 448 page Mueller report, was he?
MUELLER: Well, as I–as I say, it’s outside my purview and it’s being handled in the department by others.
