Taylor Swift's mother Andrea delivered some emotional testimony Wednesday afternoon in Denver, at one point looking at David Mueller -- the deejay who is suing her daughter -- and saying, "He sexually assaulted her. That guy." Mueller has sued Taylor, saying her claim that he groped her during a meet-and-greet in 2013 is false, and caused him to be fired.  Taylor has countersued, claiming assault and battery for "offensive and harmful physical contact."  On Wednesday, Andrea Swift said she didn't witness the alleged incident, but after Taylor told her about it, she "wanted to vomit and cry at the same…
