(CNSNews.com) – Conservative talk show host and author Mark Levin, appearing on “Fox & Friends” Friday morning, called for Republicans to demand that Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify before Congress.
He said the Democrats plan to drive down the president’s approval ratings so they can “strike.”
“I watched Bill Barr there … here’s my question, and he’s right on – if Bob Mueller can say, ‘We can’t say the president didn’t commit a crime,’ I would say to Bob Mueller, ‘I read your report … Can you show me where in your report you say that you have probable cause to indict a sitting president, but because of those memos, you couldn’t indict him? Can you show me where in your report you say, here’s the evidence for probable cause, but because of these memos we couldn’t indict him?’” Levin said.
He called Mueller “a complete fraud” and said he thought to himself, “I know why you don’t want to go before Congress, because you’re incapable of being grilled for seven, eight, nine hours.”
“And I now know Jerry Nadler doesn’t want him to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, ‘cause the Democrats now have their narrative thanks to this guy, who just pops off, and undermines the Constitution. They don’t want the Republicans questioning him - why he didn’t go into areas he should have gone into, why he hired who he did hire, what he means by obstruction of justice to go through the law and to go through all the points,” Levin said.
“The Democrats don’t want any opposition. There’s been no court hearing to challenge this man. The president hasn’t been able to put out a report formally as part of this report as under the old independent counsel statute. All it is, is one way, media push, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment now,” he said.
Levin said Mueller gave his speech in exchange for the Democrats not forcing him to testify.
“It’s the Republicans who are going to have to force him to testify. He gave Nadler what Nadler wanted. They were not happy with the report, so he went further than the report. Things that he said during that 8 and a half minutes regarding collusion, and things that he said about obstruction are not in that report. He took two steps further,” Levin said.
He called on Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to bring Mueller before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“The Republicans must demand that he come there, he testify under oath. They want eight, nine, 10 hours until they’re done. They control the Senate Judiciary Committee. Lindsey, a little less TV, a little more oversight. Call him in front of your committee, subpoena him. I don’t care if he’s gone off to The Villages or Boca Raton or wherever he’s retiring to. Drag him back. You don’t get to drop bombshells like that and throw Molotov cocktails like that, undermine a president and then off into the sunset,” he said.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night, saying that President Donald Trump wants to be impeached.
Levin said Pelosi’s “absolutely out of her mind” and that for her, it’s “all about promotion, ego, narcissism.”
“She has no interest in finding the truth. She has no interest in the oath of office. They have no interest in the Constitution of the United States. This is called separation of powers – all these subpoenas they’re throwing at the president which are outrageous. It doesn’t say in the Constitution, Congress gets to subpoena and the executive branch must bend on its knee. No.
He challenged them in court. It’s called judicial review. He’s protecting the office of the presidency. He doesn’t have to just give her everything she wants. The president didn’t commit any crimes. There’s nothing in this report that says they have probable cause showing that they committed any crimes. I’ve never seen anything like this. The American people should be furious.
You want to know what the old Soviet Union looks like? It looks like her. You want to know what despotism looks like? It looks like her. To go on these shows and say that Mueller says this, he’s a prosecutor. Nothing’s been tested. Nothing’s been challenged. There’s been no contrary information allowed. To hear this Nadler go on MSNBC and CNN and say, ‘Oh, he’s a liar, and he’s a criminal, and he’s this and a that,’ then she sits there, ‘Well, let’s see where this leads. We’re going to look for the facts.’
Here’s what they’re up to. They want to drive the president’s ratings down. They want to get him to 35, 34, 33 percent. Then they’re going to strike. Right now, the president’s ratings are significant. Right now, the American people don’t want impeachment, so this is a full-scale propaganda effort with her, with these chairmen of these committees, and with their favorite cable channels and newspapers. That’s exactly what’s going on."
