Pelosi rebuffs Nadler on impeachment after Mueller flop

The two senior Democrats discussed the party's next steps in a closed-door caucus meeting after the special counsel's testimony.

By JOHN BRESNAHAN, HEATHER CAYGLE and KYLE CHENEY 07/24/2019 08:08 PM EDT

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler pushed to launch impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump during a closed-door meeting Wednesday, only to be rebuffed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to four sources familiar with the discussions.

At a caucus meeting that came after the hotly anticipated testimony of former special counsel Robert Mueller, Nadler suggested that several House committee chiefs begin drafting articles of impeachment against Trump. Pelosi called the idea premature, the sources said.

Gosh Nero, what a disappointing day it must be for you. The Mueller business is down the drain, the Trump golden shower from Russian female agents is just your masturbation fantasy and even the networks news groups are saying impeachment is dead. Maybe if you wish for it really hard and click your ruby slippers together three times the impeachment witch of the socialists will appear and finally get get the job done.

After Mueller’s Testimony, Adam Schiff Isn’t Sure Impeachment Is A Good Idea

JOHN SEXTON
Posted at 1:21 pm on July 25, 2019

Is there any creature more pathetic in the entire collusion-gate, Mueller report saga than Rep. Adam Schiff. I think you could argue that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow set the bar pretty low with her constant focus on conspiracy theorizing about the case, but she’s a commentator on the resistance network. Rep. Schiff is the consummate Democratic insider who really had more insight into this than most people. And yet, his legacy seems to be redefining failure as a moral victory for his team.

I was on a plane for 12 hours yesterday so I missed the Mueller show in its entirety but looking at the aftermath today, it seems clear there were no bombshells and Mueller didn’t do much to pump up Democrats. Rep. Schiff seems to have acknowledged as much today. He appeared on CNN to suggest that after the Mueller testimony he wasn’t convinced impeachment was such a good idea:

On CNN’s “New Day,” Schiff swatted away concerns that Mueller’s performance, which lacked any bombshell moments, was an impediment to Democrats’ investigative efforts, emphasizing the “substance” of the former special counsel’s testimony was “just devastating.”

“Should we put the country through an impeachment?” Schiff said. “I haven’t been convinced yet that we should, and going through that kind of momentous and disruptive experience for the country, I think, is not something we go into lightly.”…

“Yes, you know, the halting nature of his answers made questioning him a challenge,” the congressman said. “As a former prosecutor, it meant that, you know, you take each witness as they come, and it meant it wasn’t easy to get him to tell a narrative.”


On one hand, Schiff has said before that he wasn’t sure impeachment was a good idea, but the whole point of yesterday’s Mueller show was to give Democrats a chance to reset the narrative, one they felt had been stolen from them unfairly by AG Barr. That’s why Dems, and Schiff in particular, kept demanding that Mueller give this testimony as a final service to the country. But what he and Democrats got yesterday was not the lifeline what they were hoping for. In fact, Rep. Schiff’s take (“it wasn’t easy to get him to tell a narrative”) is being very generous with Mueller’s performance. Other observers put it much more bluntly:

Michael Moore

@MMFlint
A frail old man, unable to remember things, stumbling, refusing to answer basic questions...I said it in 2017 and Mueller confirmed it today — All you pundits and moderates and lame Dems who told the public to put their faith in the esteemed Robert Mueller — just STFU from now on

Getting back to Rep. Schiff, remember when this lamprey-with-eyebrows was telling the nation that he’d seen evidence of collusion. He rode that horse until the Mueller report shot it out from under him. Now his latest stunt to justify his own public fixations has failed. Here’s Schiff’s closing statement yesterday. This is what it looks like when you spend two years promising the resistance the moon and wind up delivering nothing more than an embarrassing hearing that impressed no one who wasn’t already convinced.

Mueller testimony was "elder abuse" :lol: :lol:

Robert Mueller is a very impressive man. Until he opens his mouth.
Or, perhaps, he is just a calcified, barnacle-crusted swamp creature long past his prime.



If that’s the case and Democrats forced him out of his retirement home to just play along with their silly partisan fantasies, then they should all be rounded up and arrested for elder abuse.



Either way, it’s no wonder why Mr. Mueller fought so hard against testifying publicly before Congress.

But there he was: in the bright lights on national television sputtering, bumbling and doddering about some report these people kept talking about. Again and again, Mr. Mueller would wander off topic and his mouth would wander off from the microphone. The lights flickered in his eyes as if there was a faulty connection.

Democrats, desperate for Mr. Mueller to be the blockbuster star they need to keep their partisan fantasies alive, ran after him like orderlies in an old folks home. They kept bringing him back to the microphone, propping him up and prompting him to repeat lines from the Mueller Report.

How confusing it must have been for Mr. Mueller to keep hearing these people go on and on and on about a report that somebody named after him. :lol:

Democrats and political journalists in Washington — not to repeat myself — for weeks have been yelling at stupid American voters that they are not reading enough of the Mueller Report. It is their Holy Bible and they have become a party of traveling preachers screaming and haranguing that everybody’s going to Hell because they’re not reading enough of the Good Word every day.

So I guess it was kind of a shock to realize that everybody in the congressional committee room had read the Mueller Report — except for Bob Mueller.

“Eh, do you have the citation, ma’am?” Mr. Mueller asked, flipping hopelessly through the report bearing his name. “And, eh, what portion of the page?”

Other times, the poor old man got fooled by words that were not in his report.

“Where are you reading from on that?” he inquired, bewildered, searching.

“I’m reading from my question,” Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner Jr., Wisconsin Republican, replied gently.

If this was supposed to be the movie version of the Mueller Report, it is a box office disaster. If anything, the movie is an even bigger flop than the book was.

Lucky for Mr. Mueller and his family, he had come to the one place in America where he was not the biggest buffoon in the room. In that department, Congress can give anybody a run for their money :lol:

Disheveled Rep. Steve Cohen, Tennessee Democrat, struggled to prove that President Trump was angry at former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. This, of course, would prove, well, nothing.

But in Mr. Cohen’s weak mind, it would prove that Mr. Trump stole the 2016 election. After all, this is the same hack who told disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok that he deserved a Purple Heart for his efforts to steal the 2016 election away from Mr. Trump.

Anyway, he kept grilling poor Mr. Mueller to provide evidence that Mr. Trump was angry at Mr. Sessions. Mr. Mueller only doddered around painfully and failed to satisfy Mr. Cohen.

Just don’t anybody tell Mr. Cohen there is this thing called the internet and it has something called Twitter and if he wants to prove how mad Mr. Trump was at Mr. Sessions, it is all right there on Twitter. In Mr. Trump’s very own words.

Yet, still, it proves nothing.

At one point, Rep. Hank Johnson, Georgia Democrat, tried to steer Mr. Mueller back to the subject at hand. This is the same intellectual titan who once — and I am not making this up — once asked an admiral in the United States Navy if he was concerned that the weight of the naval base on Guam might cause the Pacific island to tip over and “capsize.” :lol: :lol: :lol:

“Uh,” the admiral replied, with a perfectly straight face. “We don’t anticipate that.”

Sure, it was a rough day for Mr. Mueller. But lucky for him, he was only up against members of Congress.

The House Democrats realized that the Mueller Report was underwhelming, and that many Americans would not be reading through a 400+ page report.

So Plan B was to get Mueller to testify in Congressional hearings, on TV, so that Americans could hear Mueller’s in his own words repeating at least some of the sections that Dems thought would make Trump look bad.

Well that failed, for a number of reasons:
1) Mueller refused to read or quote from the report. He insisted that the Congressman read the section and then Mueller would answer a question pertaining to it.
2) Mueller seemed doddering and confused during much of the proceedings, asking for the questions to be repeated on several dozen occasions. For the one potentially “gotcha” comment (Ted Lieu and the OLC verbiage) Mueller came out during the afternoon session and backtracked on what had been said earlier that morning.
3) Turns out that Americans who didn’t want to be bothered reading the report, also didn’t want to be bothered watching the hearings. TV ratings for the hearing were down significantly from recent Congressional hearings:

Quote:
The 7 1/2 hours of hearings, from 8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. ET, drew an average of just under 13 million viewers (12.98 million) on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC.

In the hearings, Mueller reiterated the findings of his report on Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and contacts with members of Donald Trump's campaign — including that the report did not clear the president of possible obstruction of justice.

The 13 million viewers falls short of some other recent televised hearings: Former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, for instance, drew about 16 million viewers when he testified before Congress in February. Ex-FBI Director James Comey's 2017 appearance before Congress attracted 19.5 million and Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearing averaged 20 million viewers.

So ratings were almost 20% lower than Cohen’s appearance in February and down 35% from the Kavanaugh hearings.

Well, I think it is like watching the same porn video a bunch of times...after a while the excitement just isn't there....well...that's what I heard.
