Trump’s Nightmare: Mueller to Testify Publicly on July 17th

June 27, 2019

Trump's Nightmare: Mueller to Testify on July 17th

Responding to a a subpoena, former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III will testify in open hearings of the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees on July 17th. A notorious straight-arrow, he is not expected to divulge anything about his investivation of Russian involvment in the 2016 election and White House obstruction of justice that was not in his 448-page final report. That has not stopped President Trump from trash-talking him. Perhaps it is the thought of square-jawed Robert Muellerdecorated war hero, former Assistant Attorney General and FBI Director, testifying on television, in a Brooks Brothers suit, with all America watching, that is rattling our Reality TV President.

February 6, 2019

China’s largest news network has replaced HR with AI. In November, state-run Xinhua News Agency demoed a software-based TV news anchorman.
