On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that he doesn’t know why Special Counsel Bob Mueller is needed and Donald Trump Jr. already committed a crime and is already a traitor.
Maher said, “Some Democrats now are saying that the Russia story does not test well for them. … [T]his, to me, is the problem Democrats have…they chase polls. Republicans don’t do that. Republicans change polls. They’re never intimidated by them. Russia doesn’t test well? Make it test well. Because it’s not over. It’s an ongoing story. I don’t even know why we need Bob Mueller. Don Jr. took a meeting after he got a memo — an email from the Russians saying we got dirt, let’s work together on this election. I don’t — you know, the Democrats act like unless it would hold up in a court of law, you can’t — and the Republicans are like, f*ck that. This is the court of public opinion. How about Don Jr.’s a traitor already? You know, they sent him this email…that said we have dirt on Hillary Clinton, and he sent back ‘I love it.’ That’s the crime already. If you sent me an email that said, ‘I have child porn.’ And I wrote, I’ love it. I’d love to see what you have.’ That’s already the [crime].”
