Mueller to Testify in Open Congressional Hearing
Thursday, 27 June 2019 01:19 WIB | GLOBAL |Global
Former Special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to provide open testimony before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee next month.
The chairmen of the two panels, Rep. Jerrold Nadler and Rep. Adam Schiff, announced in a letter late Tuesday that Mueller would appear July 17, and that they and all Americans looked forward to hearing from him.
Mueller led a nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and allegations that President Donald Trump obstructed justice by trying to shut down the probe.
He issued a report, a redacted version of which was made public in April, that concluded the Trump campaign had not colluded with Russia during the election, but reached no conclusion on the question of obstruction of justice.
Trump has been highly critical of the process, repeatedly calling the investigation a "witch hunt." His reaction shortly after Tuesday's announcement came in the form of a tweet: "Presidential Harassment!"
Mueller's only public comments to this point have been at a news conference in May during which he read a prepared statement, but took no questions.
