Within the first few minutes of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee, Republican politicos and pundits jumped on social media en masse, claiming the former FBI director looked “old” and “shaky.”
Mueller, 74, is testifying in front of the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees Wednesday to talk about his report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He is set to answer questions for three hours in the judiciary hearing and two hours in the intelligence hearing.
The first hearing, which began at 8:30 a.m. ET, started off with a series of quickly worded questions from Chairman Jerry Nadler who focused on getting Mueller to underscore the fact he did not exonerate the president from wrongdoing. Nadler asked the former special counsel questions he could answer in the affirmative.
