Meadows Warns Mueller: “Better be Prepared” for GOP Cross-Examination
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) is warning Robert Mueller that he “better be prepared” for the Republican cross-examination that will occur during the July 17 House Judiciary and Intelligence Committee hearings.
“It is not a good day for America, but Bob Mueller better be prepared because I can tell you, he will be cross-examined for the first time and the American people will start to see the flaws in his report,” said Meadows while speaking to Fox News’ Laura Ingraham last night.
The congressman said it is imperative to protect the civil liberties of those involved in the Democrats’ Trump-Russia witch hunt.
“We have to protect our civil liberties,” he said. “Whether they’re Republican or Democrat or in between, we have to protect those. This is a sad day for civil liberties and those who love those. Those rights that we have.”
“Yet it’s a worse day for Congress because … what Adam Schiff and them have done, they have basically harassed the president and put forth a political agenda,” he continued.
Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Fox News’ Shannon Bream last night that Republicans have many questions for Mueller surrounding the Democratic bias within the special counsel team.
“We have legitimate questions about how all these people ended up on the Mueller team that had a history of donating financially to Democrats and there didn’t seem to be sufficient balance,” said Gaetz.
The congressman said he wants to ask Mueller about why former FBI special agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page were brought onto the special counsel team in spite of both having worked on the Clinton email probe. “That’s not something you would normally see,” Gaetz said.
