Special counsel Robert Mueller's hearing could be delayed

Special counsel Robert Mueller's hearing could be delayed

Instead, Mueller will testify beginning 8:30 a.m. on July 24 for three hours before the Judiciary panel, and then give testimony to the Intelligence Committe, the two panels announced late Friday.

Combined with the five-minute limit for each questioner, a two-hour window to ask questions means only about 11 Judiciary Committee members from each party would have had an opportunity.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff issued a joint statement regarding the decision, adding that Mueller had agreed to the delay. Because the Intelligence Committee is smaller, its hearing was always expected to include time for each member. July 17 was the date penciled in, but it could be delayed a week to accommodate time for more questions from both Democrats and Republicans. "The new format will allow all Judiciary Republicans to question the special counsel on July 24", Congressman Doug Collins, R-Ga., said in his statement.

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. Democrats had initially hoped they would have more time in the capital after the hearings before decamping to their home states to capitalize on any momentum provided by Mr. Mueller's testimony for their investigations. Their desire set off months of negotiations that ultimately led to Mueller agreeing to appear, under subpoena, for a limited time period.

Democrats want to ask Mueller about his conclusions, including that he could not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice after detailing several episodes in which Trump tried to influence the investigation.

Mueller said because of longstanding Justice Department regulations that a sitting president can not be indicted, his team of investigators didn't consider trying to indict Trump.

Their report found that the company was using improper means to obtain information of Facebook users. For context, Facebook recorded $15 billion in sales during the fiscal quarter that ended in March.

One of the people said the hearing would be delayed a week.

"Whenever the hearing takes place, it's important that every single member of the House Democratic Caucus who serves on the Judiciary Committee participates in the Mueller hearing", Democratic Caucus Chair and Judiciary member Hakeem Jeffries told reporters.

"This report is my testimony", Mueller had said.

"I have been elected just like anyone else here", said Arizona Rep.

"They want to hurt the president for the election, because I see what I'm running against", Mr. Trump said before the hearing was rescheduled. Debbie Lesko, a junior GOP member of the panel.

This will be especially true of Republicans on both committees, who will seek to use their time to undermine Mueller and his investigation and to advance the ridiculous conspiracy theories that have been advanced by the President, his sycophants in Congress, and his propagandists at Fox News and elsewhere in the conservative media. The White House and Democrats have since argued bitterly over the report's findings, prompting the Democrat-held House of Representatives to call for further investigation.
