Mark Levin said Wednesday night that the left is "thrilled" with special counsel Robert Mueller today because they think he delivered new information, but he didn't. In an interview with Sean Hannity, the 'Unfreedom of the Press' author said Republicans should welcome Mueller to Congress because he is "not a man who would do well" under questioning.
MARK LEVIN: I think this whole thing was orchestrated. I think he didn't want to testify. I think [Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jerry] Nadler (D-NY) said give us the information we want in terms of propaganda. He gives the propaganda. He said I'm not going to answer the press and I'm not going to talk to Congress. Is this the same guy who demanded that the president of the United States sit down for an interview on obstruction?
I want a challenge of Mueller's premises today which is one of the reasons why he didn't want to be questioned. Did Mueller say he had evidence of a crime that met the probable cause standard but could not indict? He never says that. He doesn't say it today, it's not in his report. He doesn't say he has probable cause ever.
Number two. Did he say we had to question the president about obstruction and therefore found others who had actually obstructed and charged them? No. Who are these other people? There aren't any other people because the president didn't obstruct. So, no, nobody else who was not immune was charged with obstruction for trying to cover up this investigation.
Why did Mueller leave it to the Attorney General to decide obstruction rather than wait a couple years and see if the president wins reelection and if he doesn't, indict him in 2020? Notice he didn't do that. The answer is there were no crimes, he had no case, there was no probable cause, and by Mueller writing Volume II and giving his little spiel today -- and he was very feeble. And I'm serious about this. This is not a man who would do well under 7, 8, 9 hours of questioning, with the Republicans honing in on so many issues.
So the question is, why did he do this today? Why did he do this today? Listen to the Democrats today. They are thrilled with this man. They were not thrilled with him yesterday. They're thrilled with him today because they think, and they are wrong, that he delivered new information. The problem with the media is this. I just went through some basic lawyering. Does he mention that he could have charged because he had probable cause? No, he didn't. Who are these other people who obstructed justice? There weren't any, there wasn't any. Why didn't he wait a couple of years? What's he in a hurry for, nobody bothers him. He's noble, he's better than everybody else. Rather than toss it to the Attorney General, why didn't he wait a few years? Well, because he didn't have anything.
