Even the liberal media had to admit it: Mueller’s testimony was not the bombshell that democrats had hoped for.
The former Special Counsel stuck strictly to the script given to him by the DOJ, not answering any questions outside of the scope of his 440+ page report, filed months ago. His answers were short, succinct, and monotone, as Mueller did his best to avoid any of the trappings of partisanship on display before him.
And while some democrats claim that Bob Mueller was some sort of rock star, it would take some awfully creative reading between the lines to come to that observation.
Now, even the most ardent supporters of the RussiaGate conspiracy theory are finding themselves walking back their once-unflappable fervor.
Take Adam Schiff, for example, who appeared on CNN just hours after Mueller testimony concluded.
“I would be delighted if we had a prospect of removing him through impeachment, but we don’t,” Schiff said. “And the most attractive thing to me about an impeachment is that it is among the strongest forms of censure that we have. But the same is true of an acquittal for the president. That’s the strongest form of exoneration for him. And that stays my hand.”
Schiff has repeatedly been at odds with the President, earning him the dubious honor of being given a nickname by the Commander in Chief: “Pencil neck”.
