Fox News Channel's morning show is downplaying FBI Director James Comey's testimony to Congress, suggesting in a tweet that he mostly dodged questions.

"If you missed yesterday's congressional hearing with FBI Dir. James Comey, you didn't miss much..." reads a tweet from the official "Fox & Friends" Twitter account.

The video in the tweet includes 20 instances of Comey declining to comment in various ways, including stating on multiple occasions, "same answer" and "I'm not going to comment on that."

Comey's testimony lasted five hours and 20 minutes as he fielded dozens of questions from Democratic and Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee.

During his testimony, Comey publicly confirmed for the first time that the FBI is investigating possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. That revelation has cast what Republicans called a "cloud" over the administration that is likely to linger until the FBI's investigation is closed.

Comey also shot down President Trump's claim that he was wiretapped by former President Obama, saying he has no evidence to corroborate that assertion. 

Tuesday's episode of "Fox & Friends" also featured an interview with conservative radio talk show host and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham.

Ingraham said Democrats and the media are going to focus heavily on alleged ties between Russia and Trump's campaign in an effort to oust him from office.

"They want him out. They want him to resign or be impeached. Let's be really blunt with what's going on here," Ingraham said.
