Today Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified before the House Judiciary Committee, then spoke before the House Intelligence Committee. He wasn’t the most talkative witness. That didn’t stop Republicans or Democrats from trying to win political points. 

Democrats tried getting Mueller to confirm the most damning parts of his investigation, most notably the 10 instances where President Trump may have obstructed justice. Republicans underlied the fact that Mueller did not recommend prosecuting Trump, and tried to discredit the investigation by implying Mueller was in the tank for Democrats.
