Adam Schiff wants Mueller to bring his report 'to life'


By ELEANOR MUELLER 07/21/2019 12:15 PM EDT

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said on Sunday he hopes Robert Mueller's testimony before the House will bring the former special counsel's report "to life."

"Since most of our constituents in their busy lives haven't had the opportunity to read that report and it's a pretty dry prosecutorial work product we want Bob Mueller to bring it to life, to talk about what's in that report," Schiff told Margaret Brennan on CBS' "Face the Nation."

"It's a pretty damning set of facts," he said, "that involve a presidential campaign in a close race welcoming help from a hostile foreign power, not reporting it but eagerly embracing it, building it into their campaign strategy, lying about it to cover up, then obstructing an investigation into foreign interference again to try to cover up.

"That's a pretty damning set of facts that most American people are not familiar with," Schiff said. "And, of course, the president keeps on trying to deceive them about those facts. But who better to bring them to life than the man who did the investigation himself?"

Mueller is slated to testify before the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees for a combined five hours on Wednesday. And Democratic congressional leaders hope the public hearings can reinvigorate public interest in the report.

"We want the people to hear it directly from him, not [Attorney General] Bill Barr who had his own misleading characterization of it," Schiff said.

1. I want him to be asked one question: considering well over a thousand prosecutors and

former prosecutors have said they would indict Trump if he wasn't the POTUS (vomit in mouth), would you agree with them?

4. Would love to hear real answer. But, I suspect Mueller will say, "Rep, but he is POTUS (vomit),

and my Report includes what I have to say about this."

will do his best to intercede.

Afraid of mic off (low tech sabotage) at this point?



Expecting some like last minute stay *cough* delay?

When you suck this bad, the expectations should match?
