EP 2015-9AM LINDSEY GRAHAM THREATENS TO SUBPOENA MUELLER; SHIFTY-SCHIFF PANICS
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., announced Sunday that he will grant a request to call former Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify about the Russia investigation.
Graham made the announcement in a statement a day after Mueller published an op-ed in the Washington Post in which he defended the prosecution and conviction of Roger Stone after President Trump commuted Stone's sentence. Stone's case spun out of Mueller's probe.
"Apparently Mr. Mueller is willing -- and also capable -- of defending the Mueller investigation through an op-ed in the Washington Post," Graham said in a statement. "Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have previously requested Mr. Mueller appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about his investigation. That request will be granted.”
Mueller's op-ed defended both the decision to prosecute Stone, as well as the overarching Russia investigation that Republicans and the president have repeatedly denounced. Mueller said he felt "compelled to respond both to broad claims that our investigation was illegitimate and our motives were improper."
Trump tweeted Saturday that Stone "was targeted by an illegal Witch Hunt that never should have taken place."
"The Russia investigation was of paramount importance," he added. He went on to indirectly address Republicans' accusations that the investigation was led by crooked actors within the Justice Department (DOJ). "The women and men who conducted these investigations and prosecutions acted with the highest integrity. Claims to the contrary are false," he said.
Saturday's op-ed represents perhaps the boldest statement from Mueller, who was criticized for offering what was considered a tepid testimony to House investigators last year. Former FBI Director James Comey similarly defended the investigation last May and ridiculed accusations that the DOJ engaged in a "deep state" conspiracy against Trump.
The White House responded to Mueller's op-ed Sunday, referring to Mueller's own report, which noted a lack of evidence that the Trump campaign illegally colluded with Russia.
"Robert Mueller and his corrupt investigation failed to hold anyone in the Obama-Biden Administration accountable for their negligence toward Russian interference or for spying on the Trump Campaign based on a Democrat-funded dossier full of lies, and instead wasted taxpayer dollars trying to undo an election,” Deputy White House Press Secretary Judd Deere said in a statement. “Mr. Mueller should keep his promise to the American people and let the report, which fully exonerated the President, stand instead of pontificating in the editorial pages with more spin.”

House Intelligence Chairman and serial liar Adam Schiff on Sunday wasn’t too happy about Lindsey Graham’s move to call in Robert Mueller to testify about the sham Trump-Russia investigation.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday announced he will be calling Robert Mueller to testify after the former special counsel blasted Roger Stone in a Washington Post op-ed.
“Apparently Mr. Mueller is willing – and also capable – of defending the Mueller investigation through an oped in the Washington Post.” – Lindsey Graham said.
“Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have previously requested Mr. Mueller appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about his investigation. That request will be granted.” he added.
“I suspect that all Lindsey Graham wants to do is continue his counter-factual counter-narrative, that is that Donald Trump is somehow the victim when Donald Trump was the one inviting Russians to help him get elected in the first place,” Schiff said.
Schiff echoed Mueller’s lies and asserted Roger Stone was acting as an intermediary for the Trump campaign and communicating with Russian intel through their ‘cutout’ WikiLeaks.
This is a blatant lie and the fact that Roger Stone was never even charged with an underlying crime further proves Mueller (Weissmann) had NOTHING.
Roger Stone was charged with process crimes after countless hours of questioning by Mueller’s crooked team of Democrats because there was no hacking and Stone never broke the law.

Mueller’s op-ed (probably written by Weissmann) was full of Russian collusion lies.
For example, Mueller peddled the lie that “WikiLeaks released emails stolen by Russian military intelligence officers.”
By late 2016, the FBI had evidence that the Russians had signaled to a Trump campaign adviser that they could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to the Democratic candidate. And the FBI knew that the Russians had done just that: Beginning in July 2016, WikiLeaks released emails stolen by Russian military intelligence officers from the Clinton campaign. Other online personas using false names — fronts for Russian military intelligence — also released Clinton campaign emails. – Mueller wrote.

To this day, there is zero evidence to support Mueller’s claims of Russian hackers — the FBI never did forensic analysis of the DNC servers and just took CrowdStrike’s word that the servers were hacked by the Russians.
