time to brush up

Special Counsel Robert Mueller spent two years heading up a major investigation into 2016 Russian election interference, but, come on, that doesn't mean he actually knows its details, says Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade.

The Fox & Friends team on Wednesday was discussing the news that Mueller is scheduled to testify before the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees on July 17. The Democrats, like House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), who have been pushing for Mueller's testimony for quite some time are undoubtedly excited by the news. But Kilmeade thinks it could actually backfire.

"He's like the King of England on this," Kilmeade said, referring to Mueller. "He assigns the people." Kilmeade added that Nadler-led hearings "often get out of control," and he senses this one might as well, with the results differing from the Democrats intentions.

Kilmeade did concede that Mueller has a few weeks to "bone up" on the report, and guest host Jedediah Bila said that if Mueller doesn't know the details now, she's pretty sure "he's sitting with a highlighter going over it" because he'll want to "make this his moment."
