The high stakes congressional testimony of Robert Meuller will be the biggest media spectacle of the summer but Democrats may live to rue the day when they sent him a subpoena.
The Dems have never quite recovered from their disappointment over the Mueller report that not only exonerated President Trump of colluding with the Kremlin but failed to make the case for obstruction of justice.
Few have gone from hero to schmuck in the eyes of much of the rabid left faster than Bob Mueller who was to have been the long-awaited Trump slayer.
Once the report landed with a thud, it became clear that Dems, celebs and the media had oversold Mueller as the man who would frog march President Trump and his family out of the White Hosue in handcuffs and they haven’t recovered.
So the Dems are looking to their stunt with Mueller to breathe new life into the moldering corpse of their conspiracies despite the former special counsel’s own stated reluctance to be a part of their political shenanigans.
Suicide hotlines nearly lit up when the news hit that Mueller was backing out of his July 17th commitment which was a potential disaster Dems.
Following a day of conflicting stories, it was confirmed that Mueller would descend from the sky, after all, only a week later according to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold ‘Fat Jerry’ Nadler.

Via The Hill, “Mueller to give extended testimony after appearance postponed”:
Former special counsel Robert Mueller will give extended testimony when he appears before Congress on July 24, one week later than originally anticipated, the Democratic chairmen of the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees announced Friday.
Mueller has agreed to testify for three hours before the Judiciary panel, allowing all members the opportunity to question him. He was previously scheduled to testify July 17 under subpoena, but his appearance was to be limited to approximately two hours per committee, meaning some Judiciary members would not get a chance to ask questions.
“We are pleased to announce that Special Counsel Mueller will provide additional public testimony when he appears before our committees. At his request, we have agreed to postpone the hearing for one week, until July 24, at which time Mr. Mueller will appear in public before the House Judiciary Committee followed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a statement.
The dilemma for Democrats, however, is that Meuller will be giving “extended” testimony allowing him to be questioned by more House members than originally planned – which could boomerang on them.
While the members of the Judiciary and Intelligence committees including unhinged whack jobs like Steve Cohen, Sheila Jackson Lee, Ted Lieu, and Pramila Jayapal will be able to grandstand with questions designed to cast aspersions on Trump, Republicans will also get additional questioning time.
Probably not an ideal scenario considering that Mueller was running the politicized FBI back when degenerate pedophile Jeffrey Epstein received his sweetheart deal.
Democrats also are in jeopardy that additional questioning from Republicans on why Mueller didn’t investigate how the Russian collusion hoax originated and whether he knew that there was no collusion before the 2018 midterms yet didn’t announce it could end up with Mueller having an embarrassing senior moment on national television.
That Mueller himself was reluctant to be the main attraction at this carnival of political perversion is reason enough to believe that this spectacle is going to backfire and do so badly but to Democrats, the conspiracy has become a religion.
