Mueller was on Capitol Hill on Wednesday for his much-anticipated testimony before a Congressional panel to discuss the contents of his nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Amid the disruption, a microphone placed on the floor in front of a lawmaker picked up audio of him calling the protestor “some idiot.”

Mueller was sworn in for his testimony shortly after the protestor exited the room.
