I gave up on waiting for Godot long ago. I almost gave up on ever hearing from Robert G. Mueller, the Special Counsel investigating the greatest scandal in our nation’s history. Even those who have read—all or part—of his report on Trump and his gang’s treason know there are innumerable questions still to be answered.
Tomorrow we have the chance to pry some of them from Mueller when he appears before the House Judicial Committee and the House Intelligence Committee. If we’re lucky, and he’s cooperative, and we ask the right questions, we just might get some much-needed answers as to how we save this nation of ours.
I wish I were one of the interrogators. I promise I would limit myself to only five general questions I would most like answered. Here they are, Mr. Mueller:
You tell us in your report that one of the reasons your team was thwarted in its search for the truth was that so many of the witnesses you questioned lied. Why didn’t you name those liars if you were confident they were lying? They should be exposed for the good of the country…and imprisoned for perjury.
Why didn’t you subpoena the president and force him to testify before a grand jury? So he would probably lie—isn’t that a cause for concern anent Trump’s governing of our nation? Don’t its citizens deserve to know?
What restrictions were put on you in your investigation? Be specific. Who imposed those restrictions?
How many lines of investigation were still in process when you closed your investigation? Were you ordered to close them down by Attorney General Barr? Did you object? Are there Justice Department plans to continue with them?
What is the current fate of those investigations you referred to the Southern District of New York…those that pertained to money laundering, tax evasion, fraud? (I have heard rumors that Barr has terminated them all. Is that true? If so, do we have any recourse at all to see justice done?
Finally, a question for you, personally, sir. Will you please abandon your magnificent neutrality and come to the aid of your country (yes, again) in this, its most perilous hour? Help us defeat this Trump-Barr Fascist putsch that threatens our fragile democracy, the last best hope for the survival of human kind?
Thank you…and good luck tomorrow.
