Dem. Rep. Ted Lieu Claims Somebody ‘Got’ to Robert Mueller


-By Rusty Weiss

Democrat Representative Ted Lieu (CA) tossed out a wild conspiracy theory during an interview on CNN, suggesting somebody “got to” Robert Mueller during his testimony and killed his big ‘gotcha moment’ against the President.

Lieu, who promised his rabid liberal base that “minds may be blown” during the testimony, was inadvertently an integral part in the Democrats messaging about obstruction of justice falling apart.

During the morning session of the former special counsel’s testimony, he was a hero, getting Mueller to agree that his office didn’t charge the President with obstruction because of Department of Justice policies against indicting sitting presidents.

In the afternoon, it all came crumbling down. Mueller began the new session by correcting the record.

Lieu, appearing on Anderson Cooper 360, actually suggested Mueller, who had been a star for the resistance party for two years, had been compromised.

Mueller Compromised?

This was wild. Well, wild and a very sad attempt at trying to explain to your supporters how you managed to botch a ‘gotcha moment’ against the President you’re so desperately trying to take down.

“Mueller agreed that the OLC opinion prevented a sitting president from being indicted,” Lieu explained to host Wolf Blitzer. “And then the republican member after me asked him a series of questions to try to get him to walk it back, and he did not do that.”

“Then it wasn’t until there was a recess in the Intel Committee that he started walk some of that back,” he continued. “I don’t know who got to him. I don’t know who talked to him, but that was very odd what he did.”

Tin Foil Ted

Blitzer gave him an opportunity to walk back his own assertion that Mueller had been strong-armed by somebody (GASP! Maybe the Russians?!)

Honestly, if anyone got to Mueller, it’d be Ted’s party who held mock hearings the day before to practice for the big congressional hearing.

The official campaign arm of the resistance party, meanwhile, ignored reality and pushed the narrative that Mueller testified he would charge President Trump with obstruction if he weren’t president.

The media tried to as well, with Trump swatting them down in epic fashion.

Lieu has also spread other conspiracy theories about Trump and Russia, including an assertion that the widely debunked Steele dossier “has lots of truth.”

Do you think the Democrats will ever awaken from this Russia nightmare that keeps playing in their feeble little minds over and over again?

“What are you suggesting?” he pressed. “Are you saying he only did that because of pressure from someone?”

“I don’t know. But he clearly answered the way he answered to me, and then he had numerous times to walk that back by the next republican member who asked a series of questions on exact same issue trying to get him to walk it back,” Lieu countered. “So I don’t really understand what happened.”

‘I don’t really understand what happened’ could be the title of Lieu’s autobiography one day.
