Rebuking former special counsel Robert Mueller's report as "scandalous and shocking for it's ineptitude," former Sen. Al D'Amato, R-N.Y., said his testimony this week exposed him as "just totally, totally lost."

"It was an absolutely horrific scene," D'Amato told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. "It didn't look like he had command of anything. Mueller was just lost – just totally, totally lost. He did not have a clue."

Democrats were eager for Mueller's testimony on his report to inform the American people, but the message delivered was a negative one, exposing the investigation, D'Amato told host John Catsimatidis.

"The fact of the matter is he could not answer questions that he should've been a been able [to answer], as the person who was in charge of this whole process," D'Amato said. ". . . To think that they should be undertaking this investigation, something certainly doesn't look right, doesn't smell right. And the report is scandalous and shocking for it's ineptitude."

D'Amato was particularly incredulous Mueller, a former FBI director, was talking about exoneration and doing away with the American justice principles of innocent until proven guilty.

"He couldn't answer the questions as it related to what does it require to basically find a person innocent," D'Amato lamented." There is no requirement. You gotta find somebody guilty, and it has to be beyond a reasonable doubt.

". . . The person doesn't have to prove that they are innocent. This is ridiculous. And that whole Section 2 [of the report]. He had no answer for why they had a Section 2 in there.

". . . Mueller was just stupid. It was horrific. I wonder if he even knew where he was. He certainly didn't know what was in the report, and he had to have somebody at his side to assist him every second. I mean, it was a disgrace."
