Fox News host Chris Wallace said former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's testimony was "a disaster for the Democrats and a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller" just 90 minutes into six hours of hearings, Stephen Colbert noted to Wallace on Wednesday's Late Show. "So is Fox News' motto 'We report and decide before the thing's over'?" Wallace stood by his assessment.

"In what way was it a disaster? I don't understand," Colbert said. "Yes you do," Wallace responded. "I promise you I don't," Colbert said. "No, it seemed like a well-organized and choreographed recitation of the moral, ethical, and criminal failings of the president of the United States," interspersed with Republicans trying to discredit Mueller and his report.
