Trey Gowdy says Robert Mueller lack of knowledge of his own report proves he 'didn't write' it

Former Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has said that Robert Mueller's testimony before Congress on Wednesday proves that he "clearly didn’t write" the Mueller report.

Gowdy made the statement during the Fox News Channel’s coverage of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional hearing on Wednesday.

Fox News Contributor Gowdy said Democrats are “not closer to anything other than wishing this had never happened.

"Bad facts make for bad witnesses.

"Bad witnesses make for bad hearings, and this one was an abject, miserable failure.

"The person who learned the most about the Mueller report today was Bob Mueller.

"I say that sadly. He was not engaged.

"He didn’t interview the witnesses. He clearly didn’t write the report.”

Mr. Gowdy also said that Democrats' hopes for an easy road to impeachment were crushed when Mueller didn't give them what they wanted.

During his appearance on "The Story," Gowdy revealed that some lawmakers on the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees also attempting to use a different legal standard to President Donald Trump than is custom, 

"Before Bob Mueller had uttered a single syllable of the report, 60 House Democrats moved to impeach him," he explained.

"What they wanted was Mueller to come in and do their job for them -- to issue this roadmap that could lead them to impeachment."

The former South Carolina Republican congressman -- and previous member of the Judiciary Committee -- continued, characterizing the hearings collectively as "an unmitigated trainwreck."

Regarding President Trump, the Fox News contributor claimed several Democrats were applying a "political standard" rather than a legal standard.

"In the criminal justice realm, you are cloaked with the presumption of innocence... unless and until the United States government proves each essential element of an offense beyond a reasonable doubt."

He said Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I. and other Democrats who questioned Mueller were instead trying to make the president responsible for his own exoneration in the Russia investigation.

"You can't do it, which is why we don't make people do it in court," Gowdy said.

"They're having a hard time getting their standard right."

Earlier Wednesday, Trump himself blasted those same Democrats and members of the press in fiery remarks outside the White House, as he was preparing to travel to West Virginia.

The president pointed to multiple news agencies in the press pool calling them, "fake news," saying Democrats will, "never give up" trying to indict him for crimes related to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
