Fox News’ primetime hosts came to President Donald Trump’s defense Wednesday night while discussing Robert Mueller’s press conference from earlier that day.

The widely watched conservative cable network’s anchors Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson all tore into the special counsel, who had earlier reiterated that his Russia investigation had not exonerated Trump.

“If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that,” Mueller said during his remarks Wednesday morning. He also announced his resignation and the winding up of the special counsel’s office during his speech.

Hannity accused Mueller, a former director of the FBI, of not knowing the law and being “basically full of crap.”

Ingraham moaned about Mueller doing “a mean girl thing” with the dropping of what she described as “a little bomb” when he said that “if I wanted to clear him of a crime, I would have said so.”

Carlson called Mueller “sleazy and dishonest.”
