‘Enough with the closed door BS’: Ex-Tea Party Congressman demands Mueller testify

Published

on

On Tuesday, former Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL)  took to Twitter to demand that special counsel Robert Mueller testify in a public hearing, so that the American people can get his side of the story.

Walsh, who was elected in the 2010 Republican wave only to lose to Tammy Duckworth two years later, was an extremely conservative member of Congress but has emerged as one of the biggest critics of President Donald Trump’s administration from the right. He has condemned the president’s actions as a threat to the rule of law, and expressed his frustration at what he sees as his former colleagues’ lack of intellectual consistency in supporting actions by Trump that they would never have accepted from former President Barack Obama.

Nor is Walsh alone. Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), a sitting congressman elected the same year as Walsh, has argued Mueller’s report details obstruction of justice on the part of the president, amounting to an impeachable offense.

House Democrats have sought verbal testimony from Mueller in the wake of the release of his report, and Mueller in principle has agreed to provide it, but it is currently unclear when this testimony will take place.

Published

on

President Donald Trump went off on a strange rant after the sentence was handed down in the Roger Stone case.

Trump was supposed to be speaking about his new system of pardons which would pass down recommendations, but instead, he wanted to talk about those he felt should be prosecuted instead of Stone.

"But it happened to Roger Stone, and it happened to Gen. Flynn. and it happened to -- I won't name names," Trump continued during his Hope for Prisoners commencement address. "I know Roger but a lot of people know Roger. Everybody sort of knows Roger. And what happened to him is unbelievable. They say he lied. But other people lied, too. Just to mention [James] Comey lied. [Andrew] McCabe lied. Lisa Page lied. Her lover Strzok, Peter Strzok, lied. You don't know who these people are? Trust me. They all lied."
