[Ed. – It’s no surprise considering Mueller said he wouldn’t go beyond the report or his public statement, but it does demonstrate how silly this whole enterprise is.]
Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller said Wednesday that he would not discuss any information regarding the origins of the Russia investigation — including questions about the bureau’s initial probe and the now-infamous anti-Trump dossier — during his highly anticipated hearing on Capitol Hill.
During his opening statement before the House Judiciary Committee, Mueller again expressed his reluctance as an appointed prosecutor to testify before Congress and warned that he would not answer certain questions.
“It is unusual for a prosecutor to testify about a criminal investigation and given my role as a prosecutor there are reasons why my testimony will be limited,” Mueller said Wednesday, noting that his public testimony could influence “ongoing matters.”
“I am unable to answer questions about the FBI’s initial opening of the counterintelligence investigation,” Mueller continued, adding he would be unable to answer questions on “matters relating to the Steele dossier.”
