(Tea Party PAC) – We have been waiting a very long time to hear the conclusions of the Inspector General report on the Trump-Russia investigation.
It is just one of several federal investigations led by the DOJ into the origins of the Russia probe and the many points of possible wrongdoing on the part of the Obama officials who launched the investigation into the Republican opponent of the former Obama secretary of state who was at the time being “investigated” by a compliant FBI at the same time.
On Sunday, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who has been one of the Republicans leading the charge against the Deep State attempted coup against President Trump, joined Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.
Rep. Meadows explained to Maria that the long-awaited Inspector General’s report will be delayed, but that “people are going to jail.”
This is certainly exciting to hear. If they’re going to conclude the report, they might as well do it right!

MARIA BARTIROMO: So all of these misconceptions and misrepresentations in the Mueller report, is there going to be accountability here, congressman? I mean, you talk about John Brennan, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, James Comey, all of these people that created this narrative that the president was colluding with Russia, will we see accountability?
REP. MARK MEADOWS: Well it’s the number one question I get asked back home in North Carolina and across the country: “Will there be accountability?” And I’m here to tell you this morning, the answer is yes. Bill Barr is serious about making sure they reestablish the reputation of the FBI and the Department of Justice, and I can tell you that unless someone actually goes to jail, most of the people will think that accountability didn’t happen, but I believe based on the documents I’ve seen, that crimes were committed and people need to go to jail.
Meadows went on to explain that if the Democrats were smart, they would not call on Mueller to testify.
The Democrats have been insisting they will bring Mueller to testify before Congress, despite Mueller himself saying last month that there is no need for him to do so.
“Jim Jordan and I are very prepared to ask a series of at least eight different questions that would indicate perhaps a lack of thoroughness on behalf of Robert Mueller and his team about Mueller report.”
This is why there’s not a whole lot of opposition to Mueller testifying on the part of the Republicans.
We’d love to see him have to answer to Reps. Jordan and Meadows!
And we may just get the opportunity to see Mueller get grilled.
Last week, NPR reported:
Former special counsel Robert Mueller says he would try to be an unappealing witness for Congress, promising he wouldn’t say anything he hasn’t said before.
House Democrats say that still sounds pretty good.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., reaffirmed on Wednesday that he continues to want Mueller to speak before his panel.
“Let’s just say I’m confident he’ll come in soon,” Nadler told reporters.
He also emphasized that Mueller should testify in the open, not behind closed doors as the former special counsel had mused.
“We want him to testify openly. I think the American people need that. Frankly, I think that’s his duty to the American people,” Nadler said. “We’ll make that happen.”
