Democrat Representative Ted Lieu (CA) tossed out a wild conspiracy theory during an interview on CNN, suggesting somebody “got to” Robert Mueller during his testimony and killed his big ‘gotcha moment’ against the President.
During the morning session of the former special counsel’s testimony, he was a hero, getting Mueller to agree that his office didn’t charge the President with obstruction because of Department of Justice policies against indicting sitting presidents.
In the afternoon, it all came crumbling down. Mueller began the new session by correcting the record.
Robert Mueller crushes Democrats' dream yet again:take our poll - story continues below
"I want to go back to one thing that was said this morning by Mr. Lieu, who said, and I quote, 'you didn’t charge the president because of the OLC opinion.' That is not the correct way to say it." #MuellerHearing pic.twitter.com/W77YxcRXO8

That’s when Ted Lieu got his tinfoil hat. Appearing on Anderson Cooper 360, Lieu actually suggested Mueller, who had been a star for the resistance party for two years, had been compromised.
This was wild. Well, wild and an unfortunate attempt at trying to explain to your supporters how you managed to botch a ‘gotcha moment’ against the President you’re so desperately trying to take down.
“Mueller agreed that the OLC opinion prevented a sitting president from being indicted,” Lieu explained to host Wolf Blitzer. “And then the republican member after me asked him a series of questions to try to get him to walk it back, and he did not do that.”
“Then it wasn’t until there was a recess in the Intel Committee that he started to walk some of that back,” he continued. “I don’t know who got to him. I don’t know who talked to him, but that was very odd what he did.”

Blitzer gave him an opportunity to walk back his own assertion that Mueller had been strong-armed by somebody. GASP! Maybe the Russians? Perhaps there were threatening Zombies in the room Mueller hung out in between hearings. Or maybe it was poltergeists.
Since his correction simply stated what he already wrote in his report, It is most likely that Mueller was visited by the truth fairy.
Honestly, if anyone got to Mueller, it’d be Ted’s party who held mock hearings the day before to practice for the big congressional hearing. And it worked because after Mueller’s testimony most Americans mocked the real hearings.
The official campaign arm of the resistance party, meanwhile, ignored Mueller’s correction and pushed the narrative that Mueller testified he would charge President Trump with obstruction if he weren’t president.
The media tried to as well, with Trump swatting them down in epic fashion.
Lieu has also spread other conspiracy theories about Trump and Russia, including an assertion that the widely debunked Steele dossier “has lots of truth.” The only thing truthful one could say about the Steele dossier is that it used the alphabet and punctuation.
Do you think the Democrats will ever awaken from this Russia nightmare that keeps playing in their feeble little minds over and over again? It’s doubtful because if they moved away from the Russia hoax, they would need to find something to occupy their time—like help fix America’s problems.
