Former special counsel Robert Mueller will testify in front of an open session of Congress on July 17.
Ending weeks of speculation, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler and Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff announced Tuesday evening that Mueller has agreed to testify before both committees in mid-July.
Nadler and Schiff announced in a joint statement that “pursuant to subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence tonight, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III has agreed to testify before both Committees on July 17 in open session.”
“Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign’s acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates’ obstruction of the investigation into that attack,” their statement continued. “We look forward to hearing his testimony, as do all Americans.”
