Rachel Maddow popped up on MSNBC after Mueller’s testimony and discussed the moment when Mueller labeled a Trump crime.
Rachel Maddow Hits The Moment When Mueller Called Out A Trump Crime
Maddow said on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House with Nicolle Wallace, “I was struck at the end when everybody’s energy was at its lowest edge and Mueller seemed like he missed a step and seemed older and not on top of everything during the whole hearing. At the very top of Chairman Schiff’s question at the close of the hearing, Schiff said I want to close out my questioning and turn to the exchange we had earlier, from your testimony today I gather you believe knowingly accepting foreign assistance during a campaign is an unethical thing to do. And Mueller interjects — and a crime. He brings up the fact that is criminal behavior.”

Robert Mueller went way beyond what anyone was expecting at the hearings. Mueller revealed that Trump and his associates are still under investigation for vulnerability to Russian blackmail. There is no way that anyone could look at this hearing and find that Robert Mueller is anything less than a patriot who was hamstrung by the special counsel law that he was working under. Mueller clearly is disgusted by Trump’s behavior to the point where he went beyond Adam Schiff’s characterization and labeled Trump’s activities a crime.
