At his wrap-up press conference in May, Robert Mueller sternly underscored what he called “the central allegation” of the two-year Russia probe. Namely, that the Russian government engaged in
“multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election, and that allegation deserves the attention of every American.”
Today’s gong show on Capitol Hill presented him with innumerable opportunities to defend that heavy duty proposition.
Indeed, he had a massive TV audience before which to fortify the entire foundation on which the Russia meddling/collusion story is based and on which concerted efforts have been made by a goodly part of the Washington establishment to invalidate the 2016 election on the grounds that the Kremlin threw it to Trump.
