In the leadup to Starr's remarks Hannity dwelt on the outrageous bias of Mueller's hires to his Team--citing Andrew Weissmann and Jeannie Rhee--contrasting that with the graciousness of Barr in bailing Mueller out for his misleading remarks. Hannity remarks that Barr pulled Mueller's "sorry you-know-what" out of the fire. Starr laughs, then, still laughing:
STARR: I look forward to Bill Barr being able to speak without the encumbrance of being the Attorney General of the United States, because I think we're going to hear a lot.
But here's my fundamental point. In [Mueller's] statement to the American people saying essentially, "This is my farewell, this is the last thing I'm going to say"--I hope it's not, I hope he will be subpoenaed if necessary--Bob Mueller said, "I'm paying tribute to the integrity of the people who worked for me." He has put, by his own words, the integrity in play.
Is this the cue for Lindsey Graham at some point? To subpoena Mueller and challenge his integrity and that of his hires.? Starr seems to think so, because he closed by pointing out that when his own integrity was challenged he voluntarily testified to Congress.
UPDATE: Speaking of integrity, who thinks Mueller wants to answer questions about this (below) under oath:
Mueller seized and searched his star "collusion" witness Nader's computer in January 2018, yet never charged him w child-porn trafficking or referred such charges to US attorney. A federal criminal attorney told me: "There's no way he could not have known"
