FOX News' Chris Wallace opines on former special counsel Robert Mueller's testimony at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday. Wallace said the hearing has been a "disaster" for Democrats and for the reputation of Robert Mueller. The 'FOX News Sunday' host remarked it doesn't seem like Mueller was "very much in control or charge" of his investigation and final report.
CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS: I had to laugh a little bit when you talked about the testimony by Robert Mueller because testimony has to be put in quotes. It really hasn't been much testimony. Frankly, I think you both have been very kind. This has been a disaster for the Democrats and iI think it's been a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller.
He has seemed very uncertain with his brief. He doesn't know -- seem to know things that are in the report. He has been attacked a number of times and you would think that almost anybody else would have defended his own integrity and the integrity of the investigation and over and over, Mueller just sits silent and allows the attacks from the Republicans to sweep over him and says nothing.
I think it does raise questions about the degree to which he actually was in charge and in control of this report because he doesn't seem very much in control or charge of what the final report was. I shouldn't say whether he was in charge of the investigation. He doesn't seem in charge of what the report actually says.
On Twitter, David Axelrod called the hearing "painful."
