The Mueller hearings have so far been such a disaster for the Democrats that even Laurence Tribe sounds ready to throw in the towel. However, totally objective journalist Dan Rather spotted an opportunity to save the narrative, thanks to Rep. Adam Schiff’s opening line of questions for Mueller:

We don’t recall Rather using Mueller’s clarification of a moment Democrats were spiking the ball about in round one of his House testimony as a “damning indictment” of the Dem narrative. But perhaps Rather only believes Democrats can help the media frame stories correctly. But the media can also try and help the Democrats when they’re in need of advice:

Some Democrats did ask Mueller to read passages from his report (maybe they saw Rather’s advice), but he asked the members of Congress to do so instead.
