Mueller testimony to U.S

Robert Mueller Should Testify Publicly

They want to extract information from the former special counsel and spotlight what they say are his most damaging findings against US President Donald Trump.

"All members - Democrats and Republicans - of both committees will have a meaningful opportunity to question the special counsel in public", the statement said.

In a joint statement, the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees said Mueller requested the rescheduling.

The Mueller report said there were no proofs on the links between the election team of President Donald Trump and Russian Federation, but did not give a conclusion on the possible crime of obstruction of justice by Trump.

The Mueller report said investigators found insufficient evidence to show a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election and reached no conclusion about whether Trump obstructed justice - despite laying out episodes of the president apparently seeking to stymie the investigation. To prepare for next week's high stakes hearing with Mueller, some Democratic members and staff are watching old video of his previous testimony. Others are closely re-reading Mueller's 448-page report. First of all, most of these members don't really know what questions to ask and instead use their time to pontificate for the voters back him.

On Thursday, Rep. Doug Collins, top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, praised the news of Mueller's scheduled testimony.

Former special counsel Robert Mueller's hearing appears to be in flux Friday after reports surfaced that the testimony could be delayed.

Countries including Australia, Austria, Italy and even the United Kingdom also have similar proposals in the works. The law, which goes into effect retroactively as January 1, 2019, targets about 30 companies around the world.

The agreement will also give Mueller more time to prepare for the rigorous questioning.

Mueller, who oversaw the federal investigation into alleged Russian interference within the 2016 USA presidential election, is now scheduled to testify on July 24 earlier than the Home Judiciary and Intelligence committees, the panels' chairmen mentioned in a press release.

One of the people said the hearing would be delayed a week, to July 24. The two committees said in a statement that all members of both committees will be able to question him. But Democrats have been determined to highlight its contents for Americans who they believe have not read it.

A Judiciary Committee spokesman emphasized that next week's hearing is still on the books.

Republicans and junior Democrats on the Judiciary panel grumbled at the original two-hour format, arguing that it would sideline many of them from one of the most momentous political events of the year.

"This committee got rolled", he said.

Republican protests concerning the preparations boiled over earlier this week, when Republicans accused Schiff of upstaging the Judiciary Committee, regardless of its main jurisdiction over particular counsel investigations.
