The hosts of “Fox & Friends” questioned Robert Mueller’s credibility after Congress set a date for the former special counsel to testify about his findings.
Mueller will testify July 17 to lay out evidence of alleged crimes by President Donald Trump and his campaign associates, and Fox News broadcasters suggested questions that could undercut his impartiality.
“How did it make you feel when president of the United States said that you’re compromised, or how did it make you feel when the president of the United States kept attacking the process?” said co-host Brian Kilmeade. “What did you think about the rumors he was going to fire you? I’m not sure he is going to answer that either.”
Kilmeade then told viewers that Mueller might not have much insight to offer to the public about the report that bears his name.
“The other thing I have a sense of,” Kilmeade said, “he has until July 17 to bone up on it. I don’t think he knows the details of the report.”
Co-host Steve Doocy seemed to find that prospect ridiculous.
“He better, his name is on it,” Doocy said.
Kilmeade offered an explanation, and pushed Trump’s dishonest characterization of the investigators on Mueller’s team.
“He’s like the king of England on this,” Kilmeade said. “He assigns the people. They’re going to say, why are most of them Democratically affiliated. Aren’t you concerned about that? Do you feel why some feel there was an agenda in there?”
Kilmeade then suggested the House Judiciary Committee hearing could actually help Trump.
“Jerry Nadler, if you don’t watch these hearings they often get out of control?” he said. “I sense that this ping-pong could go in the other direction.”
Co-host Jedediah Bila painted a picture for viewers of Mueller cramming for his testimony.
“If he doesn’t know it now, I’m pretty sure he’s sitting with a highlighter to go over it and make this his moment,” she said.

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
