Federalist senior editor and bestselling author Mollie Hemingway exits today’s duo of congressional hearings featuring former Special Counsel Robert Mueller with several takeaways.

On the one hand, she was uncomfortable with how Mueller comported himself.

But on the other hand, she found the glaring result of his testimony — which was virtually nothing — to be very revealing.

She characterizes the hearings as a desperate attempt by partisan Democrats to all but beg the former special counsel to help them.

She concludes that today’s hearings did more to raise questions about Mueller and his investigation than they did to determine anything further about collusion.

Hard to imagine it could have gone any worse for Democrats.
