Rep. Devin Nunes (D-CA) said Robert Mueller knew there was no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion the moment he walked into the door as special counsel.
"You just have to ask yourself, sitting back thinking about it: What was that press conference all about yesterday?" Nunes said. "To light the fuse for impeachment."
NUNES: We still don't even know what Mueller was supposed to be investigating. We don't have that document. We know that he's talked about conspiracy to collude. Well, when he walked into the door he knew there was no evidence of collusion. We know that because his lead investigators said so on text message.
He was so blatantly dishonest yesterday that he says that the Office of Legal Counsel says you can't indict a sitting president. Well, he should have been done after day two. He has no Russians, except for the Fusion [GPS] and Clinton Russians, and possibly the dirty cops, the FBI's Russians. Those are the only Russians that he has that show connections to the Trump campaign.
Clearly, the Clinton operation is heavily working with Russians or Russian disinformation. He didn't take time to look into any of that. And then you have this where he comes and says there was no possibility to indict the president on obstruction of justice. So you just have to ask yourself, sitting back thinking about it. What was that press conference all about yesterday? It was only about one thing and that was to light the fuse for impeachment because these guys are in big trouble.
