Robert Mueller Testifies Before Congress

HeadlineJul 24, 2019

Former special counsel Robert Mueller is testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees today. His report was handed in 124 days ago, but only a redacted version was made available to the public. 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 Trump’s obstruction of justice. His deputy, Aaron Zebley, who oversaw the day-to-day activities of the investigation, is expected to also be present in an advisory capacity after a request from Mueller. Zebley will reportedly be sworn in to the House intelligence hearing. Ahead of today’s highly anticipated hearings, House Intelligence Chair Jerrold Nadler slammed the Justice Department’s directive that Mueller “remain within the boundaries” of the public version of the report. The department also said that Mueller could not “discuss the conduct of uncharged third parties,” which includes President Trump, his family and his close associates.
