Two days aftr his appearance, there was a man interviewed by Camerotta on CNN. He was a subordinate of Meuller's in the CIA's department of countr terrorism. She asked him "what he thought of Meuller's performance. He thought for about 30 seconds and said that he regarded Meuller had the man that he admired above all others. He recited his record in the military, in private parctice and also in public service. He then closed in saying that it was time all let him leave. I have no doubt what he was trying to say and how he said it.
I think that he wa used as window dressing because of his reputation and did not anticipate that their actions would ever be exposed and they would not have, had the Democrats not insisted on his appearing before Congress.
