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.

Cop says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be shot following Trump’s racist targeting of The Squad
Following racist attacks on members of The Squad by President Donald Trump and his supporters, a police officer in Louisiana reportedly said that one of the congresswomen of color should be shot.
Trump has been lashing out at the four first-term congresswomen, who include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.
Internet piles on ABC reporter for lavishing praise on Trump for allowing press to ask questions
ABC News reporter Kyra Phillips on Saturday heaped praise on President Donald Trump for his treatment of the press.
Despite the White House no longer holding daily press briefings, Phillips praised the "access" she receives from the administration.
"No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access ?Trump? gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question," she said.
She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.
‘Trump wants to start a race war’: Ex-advisor alleges his campaign planned ‘Send her Back’ chants
President Donald Trump is attempting to start a race war in America, a long-time advisor declared on MSNBC on Saturday evening.
Omarosa Manigault Newman was interviewed by Donny Deutsch on "Saturday Night Politics."
"You said could it happen here? It is happening here," Newman told Deutsch.
"As a woman of color watching him attack those four women, it made it very clear that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy," she said.
"And everyone has been kind of tiptoeing what this actually is. Donald Trump wants to start a race war in this country and it started at that rally — it started with the tweets," she said.
