Make your questions rapid-fire — no more than 10 or 11 seconds. Focus on Hillary Clinton. If Mueller can’t answer your question with a “yes” or “no,” move on. Harp on the dossier and the origins of the Russia probe. Move fast.

It sure looks like a whole slew of Republicans heeded Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s advice, laid out clearly on his show Tuesday night, in preparation for the big Mueller day.
