Depending on which side of the aisle you're on, Robert Mueller is either a frail old man or a shrewd prosecutor who testified for hours without saying much of anything on Capitol Hill yesterday.

The former special prosecutor was called to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee after turning in his long-awaited report that found no Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.

The report was not what the Democrats had expected - and neither, it turns out, was Mueller's testimony on Wednesday.

While President Donald Trump celebrated after Mueller's testimony, Democrats were left dazed and confused, wondering what just happened.

An ecstatic Trump tweeted: "TRUTH IS A FORCE OF NATURE!"

MSNBC host Joy Reid said Mueller looked "old and feeble" during his testimony. And director Michael Moore called him a "frail old man".

"A frail old man, unable to remember things, stumbling, refusing to answer basic questions," Moore tweeted on Wednesday. "I said it in 2017 and Mueller confirmed it today - All you pundits and moderates and lame Dems who told the public to put their faith in the esteemed Robert Mueller — just STFU from now on," he raged.

The Washington Post summed up Mueller's appearance as simply: "an old man in a charcoal suit who didn't want to talk."

Trump continued celebrating on Twitter Wednesday. "The Democrats lost so BIG today. Their Party is in shambles right now... The Democrats had nothing... and now they have less than nothing."

Just two years ago, the Democrats sang Mueller's praises as he assembled a "dream team" of former Hillary Clinton lawyers with one shared goal: to take down Trump and his alleged Russian allies.

Today, the Democrats' dreams of impeaching Trump lay in ruins. But there was a glimmer of hope during Mueller's testimony on Wednesday. During the morning session, Mueller left open the possibility that Trump could be indicted after he serves his 2 terms as president and leaves office in 2025.

    Idgaf about what he looked like. All these fuggin distractions to make folks lose site of what was actually important-his testimony.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Trump barely understands english, ofc he celebrated. Those of us who actually care about this country were very disturbed at the FACT that we have a criminal « leading » the country. Mueller looked great for his age, unlike a fat stank bish named Rump

    If him not telling everything during his testimony will guarantee an Indictment after this term, then keep your mouth shut Mr. Mueller!
    I did say he looked different. This has put a lot of wear and tear on his body......

    It's a blessing to live to be old we are losing two of our Matriarchs back to back seemingly in one week just be thankful to be amongst the living.

    Lol@ trump celebrates. That temper tantrum after did not signal celebration. Comprehension is dying.

  • Look@m3

    ….and another thing....If a sitting president murders a human being and is caught on tape, do we still let them finish their term?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. The man has been a great public servant for decades. It was pathetic to see all those Republicans ripping into the man and trying to undermine him... which was strange considering that Mueller is a lifelong Republican.

    Very sad and shows the world how DISRESPECTFUL some of the citizens of this country really are.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Realistically, if a president murders somebody then it should be easy to impeach and then remove him. (Unless of course we have a Republican president and a Republican-majority Senate. In that case all bets are off.)

  • Look@m3

    I only ask because when they asked him about indicting a sitting president it was like we didn't even decide TO make a decision on Indicting. So I was just wondering how bad does the crime have to be...

  • Kanyade

    They are in-fighting with one another, which is why it is so easy for them to turn on one of their own...even a Patriot, as many called him on yesterday. Party solidarity ain't what it used to be; the walls are weakening, soon to fall down. Not just in the Republican party, but also the Democratic party.

  • Look@m3

    Im so lost!!! I have never seen anything like this before...it was the most bizarre thing..

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah I've wondered that myself. From the looks of things, I guess no matter how bad it is, the policy is that you don't charge a President no matter how bad the crime, because of how disruptive it would be to the country. You'd have to impeach & remove him first, or wait till he leaves office.

    As mentioned, if a crime is committed, then the House impeaches, the Senate confirms and the president is removed from office and charged.

    The worse part for me was the Trump victory lap ugh. I might be the only person not excited by impeachment. That's bc it requires 2/3 of the Senate to remove Trump, & that ain't gonna happen. S/n-- I'm seeing Asap Rocky is being charged after all. Being released one day, charged the next....??

    It does seem that way, right? I mean, Morgan Freeman is 82, and that man has a lot of pep in his step for his age. I hope I'm lively like he is when I'm that age.

    I want him jailed after he leave the white house.

    If he comes to Bedminster (sp) even better, I can go watch the arrest

    After he leaves the white house?

    Dumb asses trying to.vote him back in.

  • currvalicious

    Mueller is full of it, in my opinion. In the beginning, he was so firm & unshakable, like he was really about to take Trump & crew down. Now he's moonwalking, backsliding, & everything in between. Chile, he needs to just go away.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. Those chicken walk slowly sometimes, but they eventually reach their destination. Just ask Cosby, El Chapo, RKelly, etc. Trump's day will come too.

    Stanton: according to my notes that was President Reagan
    Mueller: oh my mistake

  • Bushbabe

    The “OLC decision” is a ruling from the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) within the Department of Justice (DOJ) — dating back to the time of Richard Nixon and Watergate — that says a sitting president cannot be indicted.

    Mueller said exactly the opposite in his 448-page report.
    ‘The Attorney General has previously stated that the special counsel repeatedly affirmed that he was not saying, that but for the OLC opinion, he would have found the President obstructed justice,’ ”

  • Bushbabe

    Yes I have family there.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    No, Even if he gets impeached we know the Senate wont remove him. And this whole idea that he could get indicted after he leave office.. I cant see it. Even if he loses the 2020 election, he'd be close to his 75th birthday by then, and there's not too many prosecutors who'd want to be the one arresting a geriatric former President and trying to put him in jail for something that's not a violent crime. That would be really messy. I think in the end they'll just let all his stuff slide.

  • Look@m3

    With some Epsom salt.

    Well Letitia James seem to be adamant about his downfall...….Im going to remain hopeful, impatient, but hopeful!

    He’s a republican who has Trump’s best interests in mind.

    Dont forget that there are a lot of lgbtq,immigrants kids or kids of immigrant parents who are prosecutors as well. Theyre coming for that @$$ please believe that. Hes gonna spend ivanka hair bleach money on lawyers and thats if he finds a reputable lawyer to represent him. He’s not escaping the consequences of his hatred.

  • Phillybruh

    They did the perp walk with Bill Cosby I don't see why they wouldn't relish in arresting Trump.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    A perp walk for a comedian is a whole lot different from a perp walk for a former President of the United States.
    Besides, if it was for sexual assault or some violent crime, I could see that, but I can't see it for the white collar crimes that he'd be charged with.

    LOL. The Democrats have never been an 'organized' party because it's a grassroots party composed of many different groups with their own agendas.
    OTOH the Republican party is a top-down party which means someone on top basically the wealthy set the agenda and everyone else goes along with it.

  • TamG

    That was so pointless. He could have saved hours of everyone’s time and just made one statement: “I have nothing to add to the report I released.” The end.

    It’s clear 1) he didn’t know what was going on, 2) he was only tangentially involved in that report if at all , 3) the whole thing was and is a sham, and 4) Dems are being led by idiots. There are legitimate things they could attack Trump on (nepotism for example), but they instead choose stupid things that are going nowhere. Maybe they should have chosen the Black guy to lead the DNC over the Hispanic guy they chose (have Black voters forgotten their beloved Dems did this? More putting you in the background.) They have really dumb people leading them to another embarrassing loss to Trump next year.

  • wigmon68

    So different from what?

    Just some clarification on my earlier post. The DOJ as policy, doesn't believe it has the authority to prosecute a sitting president. SCOTUS has never ruled on the matter because the DOJ has never attempted to try, so there is no precedent for it being ruled unconstitutional, but that is the assumption based on the DOJ legal counsel opinion.

    Mueller has in the past (and during the hearing) given a couple of different answers as to why he didn't indict Trump. The first was the DOJ policy (based on OLC recommendations) that it can't indict a sitting president. He then said later in the hearing that the reason they didn't prosecute wasn't because of the OLC directive, but instead that, “We did not reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime.” This can be interpreted in several ways. One could be that he felt his job was only to collect evidence, not rule on what that evidence means. The other is that he didn't feel the evidence was enough to suggest a crime was committed. The latter appears to be more likely because special counsels in the past have certainly provided guidance on whether they believe a crime occurred or not. My basic interpretation is that he is saying we found some smoke (on obstruction, not collusion), but couldn't produce the fire.

    No one had hope that this was going to lead to an impeachment. We know Trump for his work - it's as clear as day and for the conservatives who like to yell, "dumb democrats" in response to unpresidential, unprofessional, unqualified, un-everything Trump, it's interesting that Trump's BIGGEST DEFENDERS (McConnell, Conway, etc.) are the SAME ones who said the EXACT same thing the "dumb, lame" democrats are saying now. So, STFU!

    If u think for a second that Trump or the Republicans are not hiring people to threaten this man and his family if he discloses his findings to impeach this bastard then u r definitely MISTAKEN!!! Trump and Putin’s collaboration is a huge threat to our liberties. Putin is a communist and is secretly meeting with our immature president who knows secrets of the US as head of the country. Trump is learning strategies from a communist. Go figure!!!!

  • Elevated Soul

    I LMAO @ Alt-Left dummies who actually believe that President Trump hired some goons to scare Mueller. The more probable occurrence is that the Alt-left hired goons to scare that man,if that is the case as to what happened in the hearing.Perhaps this may have simply resulted because Mueller did not write the report.

    Now my thinkers know that Epstein "attempted suicide" was no coincidence.
