Former special counsel Robert Mueller's hearing regarding his report on Russian interference in the 2016 election and President Donald Trump's subsequent attempts to obstruct the investigation captivated Americans on both sides of the aisle Wednesday.
Despite Republican claims that the hearing was a disaster for Democrats, Mueller directly contradicted Trump's claims about the investigation numerous times. While virtually all of this was laid out in Mueller's 400+ page report, it's satisfying to hear out loud, as this supercut of Trump's claims versus Mueller's facts shows.

The claims are so precisely rebuked, it's almost as though Trump and Mueller are in conversation.
It's a whole big fat hoax. It's just a hoax"
It's not a hoax."
It's a total witch hunt."
"It was not a witch hunt."
The video goes on to show Mueller refuting Trump's claims that the report exonerates him and that the report found no evidence of obstruction of justice.
It was pretty clear who was lying.

Despite the direct refutes of Trump's lies about the Mueller report, his allies like former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders continue to paint the hearing as a complete vindication of the president.
This isn't the first time Morning Joe has released a compilation critical of the president.
