MUELLER HEARING: House Judiciary Committee Part 1
House Democrats are planning to turn former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s highly anticipated congressional testimony next week into a marathon string of hearings, setting the stage for what could be hours of back-to-back questioning by dozens of lawmakers in public and closed-door settings.
A number of details, though, were still being ironed out, with the scheduled appearance just a week away. Lawmakers met later Wednesday to try finalizing the structure of the politically charged hearings, but said afterwards that discussions were “in flux” and some sticking points may not be resolved until the day of the hearing.
This is what is known so far: Mueller, who was subpoenaed last month, is set to appear July 17. The plan is for him to testify in public before the House Judiciary Committee for two hours or more, followed by another two hours-plus of testimony before the House Intelligence Committee in an open setting.
