Nigel Chiwaya and Jiachuan Wu kept track of all the times special counsel Bob Mueller declined to answer questions by members of Congress about his two-year investigation of President Trump. (See the screenshot of their compilation of deflections below.) The reasons for these artful dodges were varied. In some cases, for example, Mr Mueller objected to a question when he thought the question was beyond the scope of his investigation (9:31 AM: “Outside my purview”); in other cases, Mueller did not want to disclose his “internal deliberations” (e.g. 10:00 AM: “I can’t get into internal deliberations”). Mueller deflected 198 times in all.
