Several White House officials have confirmed President Trump's assertion that former special counsel Robert Mueller was hoping to become the director of the FBI when he first met with Trump in 2017.Mueller was seeking the top job at the FBI when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approached him to become special counsel, administrative officials told Fox News. Mueller denied that he was pursuing the job under oath during testimony before Congress."My understanding was I was not applying for the job,” Mueller testified on July 24. “I was asked to give my input on what it would take to do the job.""It has been reported that Robert Mueller

I need someone to explain this to me. Why did he lie? Did he need a job either way? Was he originally planning to take the FBI job but then he got the Rosenstein offer and he liked that better?

When are we going to do something about Washington elites who lie to Congress? Heck, they are going after parents who bribed people to get their kids into college. It would set an example if the DOJ prosecuted Herr Mueller and James Comey for their crimes.

How convenient. After a failed attempt to install Mueller as a figurehead FBI Director, the coup crew arranged his alternative role: Figurehead Special Prosecutor.

Mueller lied under oath. The FBI should raid his house in the middle of the night and haul him off to solitary confinement. Next, they should subpoena all his financial records for the past 40 years, find some inconsistencies and put him in jail for the rest of his life. That would be justice.

Here is a tidbit from my memory bank. Herr Mueller was the new FBI director when 9/11/01 happened. The FBI had dropped the ball when an agent in the field requested a search warrant for that laptop belonging to one of the filthy islamofadcist terrorist pigs. The supervisor denied the warrant request. The rest is history. (The laptop, it was later learned, contained the plans for 9/11.) The FBI, the day after 9/11, sent agents out to interview muslims and others, anticipating follow up attacks. But one FBI agent, a muslim, said he could not interrogate fellow muslims, because of their shared religion. What did Herr Mueller do? He said, 'well, all right then!' and gave the muslim fbi agent a pass! Herr Mueller also ordered the FBI trainers to purge training materials dealing with Islam. And he wanted a second act at the FBI directorship???

Gregg Jarrett explained why Mueller lied about this under oath last night. Mueller talked with Rod Rosenstein prior to the meeting and had gotten information from him that they were investigation a possible obstruction of justice charge against the President for firing Comey. When Mueller went in to talk to Trump under the pretense of interviewing for the job his real job was to get Trump to talk about his reasons for firing Comey and possibly let something slip that could be used against him. Trump indirectly admitted to Jarrett that this topic was discussed at the interview but he did not go into details. Both Rosenstein and Mueller knew the real intent of the meeting was to get evidence against Trump yet Rosenstein still appointed Mueller to be the "impartial" Special Prosecutor a few days later. This is how deep the swamp goes when you will believe you are on a mission to save the country from the duly elected President Trump by any means necessary.

Surely Mueller would not have been trying to prosecute President Trump under false pretenses !?! We know he has a very faulty memory, like saying he had never heard of Fusion GPS, but he must have known why he was meeting with the President. It couldn't be that he was lying from the get-go, could it ?

The current situation in Washington is, in the language of poker, a bluff. The Democrats are bluffing; they have only weak cards in their hand. They actually have nothing against Trump. That's all they have ever had. As it is known, impeachment is simply a vote of no confidence. A vote of no confidence exists in many countries where there is a political separation of powers. In some countries, for example, the president has the right to dissolve parliament and call new parliamentary elections, and as a political counterbalance, the parliament can declare a vote of no confidence against the president.

Washington - Each state in America has an official state bird, usually an iconic species that helps define the landscape. Minnesota chose the common loon, whose haunting wails echo across the state’s northern lakes each summer. Georgia picked the brown thrasher, a fiercely territorial bird with a repertoire of more than 1,000 song types. But as the planet warms and birds across the country relocate to escape the heat, at least eight states could see their state birds largely or entirely disappear from within their borders during the summer, according to a new study.

On the other side, the conservative group Concerned Women of America pressed that changing the meaning of “sex” in the Civil Rights Act “would greatly undermine the women's movement.” They held signs that read, "Sex is not Gender."

A little deeper rests another chamber that's 4.5 times larger. The Yellowstone supervolcano has unleashed three cataclysmic eruptions in the past 2.1 million years;

As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states, "The unique and altogether singular event of the Incarnation of the Son of God does not mean that Jesus Christ is part God and part man, nor does it imply that he is the result
