Sen. Lindsey Graham urged the country to move on from the Mueller Report Thursday morning; praising the former special counsel’s dedication to the country and his service in the Vietnam War.

“I think it would be good for the country if we could move on from the Mueller Report. Let that be the final word and see if we can work on securing our elections against interference in 2020. I’m going to look at how the whole investigation started and why it went so long,” said Graham.

“As for Mr. Mueller, he served his country long, well, wounded in combat in Vietnam. Became the FBI Director after 9/11… I don’t want this to define his career,” he added.

Trey Gowdy unloaded on leading Democrats and their handling of Robert Mueller’s Congressional testimony Wednesday; saying the person who “learned the most” about the Mueller Report was -in fact- Robert Mueller.

“They’re 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 Robert Mueller,” Gowdy told Fox News.

“He was not engaged, he didn’t interview the witnesses, he clearly didn’t write the report, which means those under him did, which means the issue of bias is all the more important. It was a terrible day if you are a Democrat,” he added.

President Trump weighed-in Wednesday on Robert Mueller’s disastrous Congressional testimony; thanking the Democratic Party “for holding this morning’s hearings” and calling Rep. Adam Schiff an “embarrassment to our country.”

“I would like to thank the Democrats for holding this morning’s hearing. Now, after 3 hours, Robert Mueller has to subject himself to #ShiftySchiff – an Embarrassment to our Country!” tweeted Trump.
