Michael Cohen got to watch Robert Mueller from the big house — and he didn’t like what he saw.

The disgraced ex-fixer for President Trump said in a jailhouse message that the special counsel blew a huge chance to hold the president accountable for his misdeeds.

“Mr. Mueller today had the world stage to answer questions regarding obstruction of justice and witness tampering. Sadly, his reluctance just continues to leave the debate open and those responsible free from prosecution ... for the moment,” he said in a message reported by CNN.

“The American people deserve more!” he added.

Cohen, who is facing three years in prison for his role in Trump’s hush money scheme to keep Stormy Daniels quiet, didn’t explain how he got to watch the much-anticipated hearing at his Otisville, New York federal prison.

Mueller’s halting testimony also failed to explain key questions like how Donald Trump Jr. got off scot free despite apparently soliciting dirt on Hillary Clinton from Russian operatives.

Cohen urged lawmakers to reach out if they want a more complete version of Trump’s antics than Mueller was willing to offer.
