Is Nothing Sacred?
Now that Robert Mueller has failed to deliver the verdict that Democrats were hoping for - namely that our President is a traitor who colluded with Russia, it appears that the special counsel has become persona non grata - with House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler angrily demanding that Mueller appear before his committee "as soon as possible" to explain things.
To that end, MSNBC's Mike Viqueira thought it would be a good idea to play paparazzi and confront Mueller after Easter church services - sticking a microphone in his face as he walked to his car with his wife.
"Well, we understood that Robert Mueller was just across Lafayette Square here from downtown Washington at St. John’s Episcopal Church," said Viqueira. "He’s been seen there before over the last several weeks attending services. He was there with Mrs. Mueller at the 9:00 a.m. service. We had a camera crew waiting outside. It was, of course, Easter service. And, yes, we did surprise director Mueller upon his exiting of the church."
Reporter: Sir, could I ask you a couple of questions? Will you testify before Congress, sir?
Mueller: I have no comment.
Reporter: Are you sure about that, sir?
Mueller: No comment.
Reporter: If it were anybody but the president, would Mr. Trump be indicted, sir? Now that you have finished — sir, why didn’t you make a recommendation to Congress one way or the other? Did the attorney general accurately characterize your positions on conspiracy and obstruction, sir?

Following the encounter, Viqueira told anchor Alex Witt: "I think we can characterize director Mueller’s attitude as tight lipped and perhaps not interested in talking to me. It was after all Easter Sunday and he was after all coming out of Easter services. But nevertheless, that’s the first time we have heard from Bob Mueller in quite some time, even if his only comment was no comment."
