In this episode I address the emergence of more suspicious activity and suspicious omissions from Mueller’s report. I also discuss another epic fail from AOC while trying to question an FBI official.
Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, Nadler said “Let’s just say that I’m confident he’ll come in soon.”
He also said his committee would subpoena Mueller “if we have to.”
Last week, Mueller said he would not testify before Congress, claiming his final Russia report was his testimony.
“Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report,” he said in a press conference. “It contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully and the work speaks for itself. And the report is my testimony.”
He continued, “I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress. In addition, access to our underlying work product is being decided in a process that does not involve our office. So beyond what I have said here today, and what is contained in our written work, I do not believe it is appropriate for me to speak further about the investigation or to comment on the actions of the Justice Department or Congress.”
Dowd left a voicemail for Flynn’s attorney, Rob Kelner in November 2017 and as the Daily Wire reports, the transcript was “selectively edited to give the impression that Trump’s attorney was asking Flynn’s attorney for information that might hurt the president while reminding the attorney about what Trump has said about Flynn.”
In other words, the voicemail was edited to either make it seem like Dowd wanted to obstruct justice or attempt to conceal damaging information about the president.
I understand your situation, but let me see if I can’t state it in starker terms. . . . [I]t wouldn’t surprise me if you’ve gone on to make a deal with … the government. … [I]f . .. there’s information that implicates the President, then we’ve got a national security issue, . . . so, you know, . . . we need some kind of heads up. Um, just for the sake of protecting all our interests if we can …. [R]emember what we’ve always said about the ‘ President and his feelings toward Flynn and, that still remains ….
In reality, the full transcript shows that Dowd specifically requested information that was not confidential–an important distinction to make.
Full voicemail transcript:
Hey, Rob, uhm, this is John again. Uh, maybe, I-I-I-‘m-I’m sympathetic; I understand your situation, but let me see if I can’t … state it in … starker terms. If you have … and it wouldn’t surprise me if you’ve gone on to make a deal with, and, uh, work with the government, uh … I understand that you can’t join the joint defense; so that’s one thing. If, on the other hand, we have, there’s information that … implicates the President, then we’ve got a national security issue, or maybe a national security issue, I don’t know … some issue, we got to-we got to deal with, not only for the President, but for the country. So … uh … you know, then-then, you know, we need some kind of heads up. Um, just for the sake of … protecting all our interests, if we can, without you having to give up any … confidential information. So, uhm, and if it’s the former, then, you know, remember what we’ve always said about the President and his feelings toward Flynn and, that still remains, but — Well, in any event, uhm, let me know, and, uh, I appreciate your listening and taking the time. Thanks, Pal.
Dowd appeared on Fox News’ Hannity last night and slammed Mueller’s report as a “fraud.”
“Isn’t it ironic that this man who kept indicting and prosecuting people for process crimes committed a false statement in his own report?” he said. “By taking out half my words…they changed the tenor and the contents of that conversation with Robert Kelner. It’s an outrage. And there’s probably more of it.”
Watch Dowd’s appearance on Hannity below:
In this episode I address the stunning piece of information Bob Mueller hid from us in his report. I discuss the latest Democrat presidential candidate to disingenuously cry “racism.” I also address the real reason liberals want to keep the citizenship question off of the census. Finally, I discuss the question every media rep should be asking Joe Biden.
In this episode I address the surprise public statement by Special Counsel Bob Mueller. I also address the ridiculous opinion piece penned by Jim Comey in the Washington Post. I also address the attack on a successful businessman for his philanthropy.
President Trump tweeted about Brennan, writing, “John Brennan on the Mueller probe, ‘I don’t know if I received bad information, but I THINK I SUSPECTED THAT THERE WAS MORE THAN THERE ACTUALLY WAS.’ Wow, he admits he was wrong! Congress should go back to work on drug prices etc.”
President Trump’s tweet was a reference to Brennan’s March 25 appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe shortly after the release of the Mueller report.
When asked if he was surprised by the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not find evidence of collusion in his Russia probe, Brennan replied, “Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I suspected there was more than there actually was…”
Brennan replied to the President’s tweet minutes later, writing, “I subsequently learned from the Mueller report that there was a lot more evidence of collusion and obstruction of justice than was indicated in the misleading & highly politicized Barr memo. Your obvious fear of Congressional action is warranted & your dishonesty is appalling.”
The Hill is reporting that a group of about 20 Democrats will host a “marathon” public reading of the Mueller report in the House Rules Committee Room on Thursday.
The vice chairwoman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) will begin the reading, followed by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY).
Scanlon told the Washington Post, “We’ve been saying for weeks that if you think there was no obstruction and no collusion, you haven’t read the Mueller report. So the ongoing quest has been, ‘How do we get that story out there while we are waiting for the witnesses to come in?’”
Scanlon insisted she and her fellow Democrats were not engaging in a political stunt, saying “It’s not a ploy to keep anything going.”
The reading would take between 12 and 14 hours.

In this episode I address the real reasons behind the Trump revolution, and why media elites still can’t process what’s going on. I also address the troubling revelation this weekend by a prominent reporter about John Brennan’s role in the spying scandal. Finally, I address the failings of the Mueller Report.
