'We want the American people to hear directly from Special Counsel Mueller what his investigation found, ' Nadler said Sunday morning.

Schiff said Mueller's high-stakes congressional testimony, which had to be postponed from an earlier date in July, will also serve as an indispensable opportunity for the special counsel to talk about his investigation without any interjecting statements from Attorney General William Barr, who Democrats have accused of shielding the president.

"The report presents very substantial evidence that the president is guilty of high crime and misdemeanours, and we have to let Mueller present those facts to the American people and then see where we go from there", House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said on "Fox News Sunday".

Still, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee plan to focus on a narrow set of episodes laid out in the report to direct Americans' attention to what they see as the most egregious examples of Trump's conduct, which point to obstruction of justice.

He added that lawmakers should instead support Attorney General William Barr in his appointment of CT federal prosecutor John Durham to probe the origins of the Russian Federation investigation.

Democrats on the Home intelligence panel are expected to focal level on the first quantity of Mueller's picture, which tiny print numerous contacts between Trump's advertising campaign and Russian Federation.

Democratic aides say they believe the McGahn and Lewandowski narratives, explained in detail in the 448-page report, are clear examples of such obstruction and will be easy to understand as lawmakers try to educate the American public on a report that they believe most people haven't read. We want Bob Mueller to bring it to life.

Republicans, who say Trump is the victim of a political attack by Democrats and former Justice Department officials, plan to use Mueller's appearance to explore the origins of his investigation and the politics of his former team.

"If we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so", Mr Mueller said.
