Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and her team contacted 70 House Democrats for an interview after the Robert Mueller hearings — and none responded.
Consider that: Mueller’s hearing on Capitol Hill on Wednesday that not a single House Democrat would appear on Fox News to speak about it.
“Our amazing @FoxNewsNight staff – including @BrigidMaryMcD – has reached out to roughly 70 Dem offices to get a Member to join our show tonight,” Bream wrote. “Crickets. So, if you’re a House Dem and willing to talk about the Mueller hearing – let us know ASAP. See the rest of y’all at 11p!”
Mueller’s Wednesday appearance before the House Intelligence Committee was nothing short of a total disaster for Democrats.
While taking part in a Fox News panel, former Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy joked that Mueller looked frail, uninterested in being there, and refused to take part in countless attempts from Democrats to lay the groundwork for beginning impeachment against the president.
“It was a terrible day if you were a Democrat,” Gowdy said. “I do want to give them credit for this. They managed to have a hearing without calling a convicted felon as a witness. I don’t want us to overlook that.”
“The Michael Cohen hearing may have been more interesting, TV-wise,” Fox host Brett Baier cracked, and Gowdy laughed, adding, “QVC was more interesting than what I watched.”
Mueller also made a few bombshell admissions that further proved President Donald Trump did not collude or obstruct justice.
During one exchange, Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins caught Mueller contradicting his own report.
Collins exposed Mueller for saying one thing in public, but another in his own Russia report.
Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh also called out Mueller for telling a lie about Attorney General William Barr.
Mueller told Barr three times that the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) precedent, which states that a sitting president cannot be indicted, had no impact on his decision to indict Trump.
But when he testified on Wednesday, Mueller tried his best not to admit that.
It seemed as if Mueller was afraid to admit that he never found evidence to indict Trump, but Limbaugh called him out.
Beyond that, it speaks volumes that at least 70 Democrats refused requests to appear on Bream’s program to discuss the Mueller hearings.
