Even Easter isn’t a sacred enough day for the mainstream media.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller was leaving an Easter church service this morning when he was accosted by an MSNBC reporter.
“We waited for him, Easter services, tried to be as respectful as possible,” NBC News correspondent Mike Viqueira told viewers, noting he came “out the side door” of the Washington, D.C. church.
MSNBC just sent a "journalist" out to stake out and harass Robert Mueller when he was leaving church on Easter Sunday.

“Sir, can I ask you a couple of questions,” Viqueira began, not waiting for an answer.
“Will you testify before Congress, sir?”
“I have no comment,” Mueller responded in a low voice.
“Are you sure about that, sir?” Viqueira challenged, refusing to leave the man alone.
“No comment,” Mueller said again.
“If he were anybody but the president would Mr. Trump be indicted,” the correspondent asked.
No answer. Mueller was probably thinking about Jesus or brunch, not MSNBC’s never ending obsession with Russia “collusion”.
“Sir, why didn’t you make a recommendation to Congress one way or the other, sir?” Viqueira asked as Mueller struggled to unlock his car door.
“Did the attorney general accurately characterize your positions on conspiracy and obstruction, sir?” he tried again as Mueller nearly shut the door on his microphone.
The correspondent went on to say Mueller was “tight lipped” during the ambush.
Viqueira claimed it was the first time Mueller has “been on tape in many, many months.”
The special counsel was similarly filmed outside church last week.
