Democrats, journalists and celebrities responded to special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony Wednesday, with a number of them saying he appeared to be “struggling,” “frail” and not “as sharp” as years past.

Mueller appeared before lawmakers on two House committees to testify about the report investigating potential Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. After the hearing began, however, viewers began questioning his performance, noting that he appeared confused throughout the hearing.

“This is delicate to say, but Mueller, whom I deeply respect, has not publicly testified before Congress in at least six years. And he does not appear as sharp as he was then,” said CNN political commentator David Axelrod.

Mueller repeatedly asked lawmakers to repeat themselves 48 times in the two rounds of testimony.

“This is very, very painful,” Axelrod tweeted. “He has been an exemplary public servant…but he clearly was struggling today and that was painful.”

House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, said he didn’t know if the testimony helped advance the idea of impeachment proceedings.

“I don’t know. It’s hard. It’s hard,” reported Melanie Zanona of Politico.
