As more and more Committee hearing testimony is revealed, some really interesting narratives are starting to develop.
Reading over the testimony of Andrew McCabe, the former Deputy Director of the FBI, it brings to light the question of Mueller lying in a statement that was publicly released about the firing of Peter Strzok.
Did Mueller Lie?
On December 2, 2017, Peter Strzok being removed from the probe was announced.
That information came out via a statement from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office.
Peter Carr, speaking for the Special Counsel office, stated, “Immediately upon learning of the allegations, the Special Counsel’s Office removed Peter Strzok from the investigation.
“Lisa Page completed her brief detail and had returned to the FBI weeks before our office was aware of the allegations.”
That statement, however, contradicts testimony given by Andrew McCabe under oath during his testimony to Congress on December 21, 2017.
Regarding Peter Strzok, McCabe stated, “I made the decision to remove him from the investigation that evening.
“I came back from my meeting with the inspector general.
“I met with a very small group of my fellow leaders.
“We discussed Peter’s reassignment, and we discussed where we would place him.”
Mueller needs to be called in to testify not only about his report but about this particular statement.
Some will say it is semantics, but I would completely disagree.
Right now, Democrats are breaking down every word Trump says and if he is even slightly off, they want to bring up charges against him.
They are doing the same thing to Barr and every other member of the Trump administration.
In Mueller’s case, it goes directly to his credibility.
If McCabe did, in fact, remove Strzok from the investigation, why did the Special Counsel’s office state otherwise?
If Mueller and company lied about that, what else have they lied about?
The integrity of the entire report now comes into question over this one statement.
And, regardless, either McCabe or Mueller lied, with one possibly doing so under oath, the other possibly to the American people, either of which should be punished.
