DOJ Tells Mueller His Testimony Must “Remain Within Boundaries” of Redacted Report

HeadlineJul 23, 2019

As lawmakers gear up for former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimonies before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees Wednesday, the Justice Department warned Mueller in a letter to “remain within the boundaries” of the public version of the report. The letter also said that Mueller could not “discuss the conduct of uncharged third parties,” which includes President Trump, his family and his close associates. The Mueller report concluded the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, but refrained from coming to any conclusions about obstruction of justice.

Meanwhile, FBI Director Christopher Wray is testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee today on the origins of the Russia investigation.
