“Kushner and Manafort downloaded encrypted apps the day of the Trump Tower meeting” the man yelled twice as he was being escorted out of the room.

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.
