Robert Mumbler? Special Counsel Gives ‘Disoriented’ Russiagate Testimony

from Sputnik News:

Observers were bemused Wednesday by former special counsel Robert Mueller’s marathon testimony before the US House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. Called to answer questions about his March report on alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US election, Mueller’s favorite refrain quickly became “I’m not going to talk about that.”

“Very, very painful” to watch: that’s how former Barack Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod described Mueller’s eight-hour testimony before Congress Wednesday. Democrats called the former special counsel before the two committees to clarify a number of questions about his two-volume report presented to the Justice Department in March. After becoming dissatisfied with Attorney General William Barr’s redacted version of the report which he presented to Congress, Democrats subpoenaed the unredacted version of the report – and then sought testimony from Mueller himself, when Barr continued to resist.
