Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to publicly testify in front of Congress next month
Mueller, the former Special Counsel who recently conducted an investigation on President Trump and possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, is scheduled to appear before two house committees on July 17. The Democrat-led House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees both look to use the hearing to learn more about President Trump’s possible Russian ties and more that weren’t specified or spoke about in the original Mueller Report, Fox News states. ~
The two chairmen of the committees – Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) of the House Judiciary Committee, and Chairman Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) of the House Intelligence Committee – had threatened for weeks to issues subpoenas to force Mueller to testify yet didn’t issue such a subpoena until Tuesday. ~
According to the Wall Street Journal, the public testimony of Robert Mueller is said by democrats to be “crucial to their goal of educating the public about Russian interference in the 2016 election and the information in the report on President Trump’s efforts to stifle the related federal investigation.” The suspected goal of the testimony for many democrats is to build public support for opening up impeachment inquiry on President Donald Trump. In contrast, a lawyer for President Trump by the name of Jay Sekulow, said in a statement that “Bob Mueller has already stated that his report is his testimony. We now expect that his testimony on July 17 will be his report. In that report, he concluded that there was no collusion or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia. We also expect that he will have to answer questions regarding some of the irregularities that took place during his investigation, not the least of which involve Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.”~
