Robert Mueller testimony on Russia meddling investigation postponed

Mueller hearing might be delayed and lengthened so more members can question him

Former Special Counsel Robert Muellers long-awaited testimony before the US Congress has been delayed by a week, until July 24, two House committees announced in a joint statement.

Mueller's limited availability meant restrictions on the amount of time for some members to ask questions and also made it appear that some members wouldn't be able to speak at all.

Mueller will testify before two House committees on July 24, one week after the originally scheduled date, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement Friday. The subject of the Oversight Committee's hearing is a bill, proposed by Del.

The news was welcomed by members of both parties.

The Judiciary Committee is expected to focus on episodes in Mueller's report where Trump attempted to influence the investigation.

Still, the new terms publicized Friday evening appeared to have other limitations.

"I don't think anyone has said they want their time in the spotlight, I think at the end of the day the American people will be better served if we spend as much time as possible communicating the importance of the stakes of this hearing as it relates to an incredible attack on our democracy, unprecedented in our nation's history", Jeffries said.

And, for now at least, Democrats have agreed to proceed without immediate access to Mr. Mueller's top deputies that had previously been incorporated into his appearance on Capitol Hill. "After a brief break, the House Intelligence Committee will convene for additional public testimony beginning at 12:00pm", the chairmen said in a statement. But Rep. Steve Cohen told reporters they would not appear after the Justice Department directed them not to. But the reason for the change was not immediately clear.

Mueller has expressed his reluctance to testify and said he won't go beyond what's in his report.

U.S. Particular Counsel Robert Mueller makes a press release on his investigation into Russian interference within the 2016 U.S. presidential election on the Justice Division in Washington, U.S., Might 29, 2019. Following that testimony, Mueller will then seem earlier than the Intelligence Committee.

Some Democratic House lawmakers have called the report a road map for further investigations and more than 80 House Democrats have called to begin an impeachment inquiry for President Donald Trump.

Democrats have also privately-and publicly-stated concerns about some members being excluded from questioning Mueller due to time constraints. A more ideal situation would be for the questioning to be handled, or largely handled by the staff attorneys for the committees, who are generally speaking more skilled at questioning under these circumstances than individual members. For better or worse, though, that won't happen this time.
