Mueller is reluctant to testify publicly about his report because he doesn’t ‘want to appear political’: report

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller is reluctant to publicly testify about his report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election because he does not want to become part of a political firestorm.

CNN reported on Tuesday that Mueller and his team are worried about the political environment that he would be stepping into if he agreed to testify publicly before the House Judiciary Committee.

CNN says that Mueller may be more willing to testify behind closed doors, but he is hesitant to create a public spectacle with cameras on.

Mueller’s reluctance to talk publicly about his own report is frustrating congressional Democrats, especially since the report did not make a definitive call on whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) has insisted that Mueller must testify publicly about his work, and he will subpoena him if necessary.

“Eventually we will hear from Mueller because … we will subpoena him if we have to,” Nadler told CNN. “I certainly hope it doesn’t come to the, to our necessity to subpoena him.”

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
