Mueller agrees to appear before two House panels next month

Robert Mueller to testify publicly before Congress on July 17

But he has been hesitant to testify and speak about the investigation beyond a public statement he issued last month.

Nadler fielded questions from journalists after it was announced that Mueller had agreed to testify in front of the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Mr. Mueller, in a farewell statement to the press in May, said the report spoke for itself and warned he would have nothing more to add if called to testify.

Robert Mueller has agreed to answer questions from Congress for the first time since his investigation of Russian election interference began more than two years ago. "And that's illegal. That's a crime", Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network, referring to two former Federal Bureau of Investigation employees who exchanged disparaging messages about the president.

"The Special Counsel's Office is part of the Department of Justice and, by regulation, it was bound by that Department policy". The president charged in a tweet a year ago that "19,000 demanded Text messages between Peter Strzok and his Federal Bureau of Investigation lover, Lisa Page, were purposely & illegally deleted", a claim that was debunked by Politifact. On the other hand, Mueller said that if they had believed that Trump did not commit any crime, they would have said it.

Mueller's team also investigated a number of obstruction of justice allegations involving President Donald Trump.

President Trump and Robert Mueller. Democrats negotiated for more than two months to obtain the testimony, hoping to focus public attention on the special counsel's 448-page report that they believe most Americans have not read. "We were determined to bring that about", Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, Democrat of NY and chairman oof the House Democratic caucus, said on "The Last Word".

He maintained "the same principle that should have kept Comey from talking about the Clinton emails" should limit what Mueller will say.

"The Mueller Report revealed that the Russians waged a "sweeping and systematic" attack on our elections, and America's top intelligence and law enforcement officials have warned that the Russians will attack our elections again", she said in a statement.
