NBC News political director Chuck Todd weighs in on former special counsel Robert Mueller's performance at today's House Judiciary and Intelligence Committee hearings. Todd called the optics of the hearings a "disaster" and the special counsel did nothing to advance the cause for impeachment.
SAVANNAH GUTHRIE, NBC NEWS: When the Democrats were asked why, why would they put Robert Mueller on the witness stand, why did he come before Congress when he's issued this report, they said, because you needed to have this report come alive, because the movie will be better than the book, that it would capture and captivate America's attention and focus them on the issues here. And to our panel, I ask the question, is it mission accomplished, if that was the goal?
CHUCK TODD, NBC NEWS: If that was the goal, it's a complete failure on that front, so look, on the optics, this was a disaster.
