Mueller To Testify In Public On July 17

U.S. Special Counsel Mueller speaks about Russia investigation at the Justice Department in Washington

U.S. Special Counsel Mueller speaks about Russia investigation at the Justice Department in Washington

"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", Reps.

The ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Doug Collins of Georgia, said in a statement that he had encouraged Nadler to subpoena Mueller to "bring to House Democrats the closure that the rest of America has enjoyed for months, and may it enable them to return to the business of legislating".

The news comes as Democrats grappled with whether to subpoena Mueller, who was reluctant to testify in public. The calculation may be that any clips of Mueller speaking, even if he sticks to the script of the report, will register with many Americans in a way the special counsel's report did not.

In this March 24, 2019 photo, then-special counsel Robert Mueller walks past the White House, after attending St. John's Episcopal Church for morning services, in Washington.

Mueller has resisted testifying, saying the special counsel's report on Russian election interference and obstruction ought to speak for itself.

A representative for Mueller did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mueller indicated in his short public statement weeks ago that any testimony from his office "would not go beyond our report".

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

Mr. Mueller spent almost two years leading a team that probed the 2016 election, Russian attempts to interfere, and President Trump's behavior both during the campaign and afterward as president.

But the report found insufficient evidence to establish a criminal conspiracy between the campaign and Moscow.

Mueller reiterated last month that his 448-page report did not entirely clear Trump.

US President Donald Trump has dismissed Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt".

Over the course of a two-year investigation, the special counsel charged 34 people, including 26 Russian nationals, and secured guilty pleas from seven, including several high-level Trump campaign and administration officials.

This is a developing story; check back for updates.

Attorney General Bill Barr said previously that he had no problem with Mueller testifying and would not stand in the way.
