President Donald Trump mocked Democrats on Wednesday over the U.S. House of Representatives hearing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which has been described by some as a political "disaster" for the party.
I would like to thank the Democrats for holding this morning’s hearing. Now, after 3 hours, Robert Mueller has to subject himself to #ShiftySchiff - an Embarrassment to our Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 24, 2019
Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow released the following statement: "This morning’s testimony exposed the troubling deficiencies of the Special Counsel’s investigation. The testimony revealed that this probe was conducted by a small group of politically-biased prosecutors who, as hard as they tried, were unable to establish either obstruction, conspiracy, or collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. It is also clear that the Special Counsel conducted his two-year investigation unimpeded."

It is unclear what catastrophe the Democrats will come up with next now that the Mueller interrogation did not go as planned, but they will come up with one.
Among those on the Left who have criticized the results from the hearing are former senior Obama advisor David Axelrod and Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe.
Axelrod described the hearing as "very, very painful."
