Robert Mueller's congressional testimony may be delayed

Robert Mueller Should Testify Publicly

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.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's blockbuster appearance before two House committees has been delayed until later this month.

Another source familiar with the negotiations said Democrats have offered for Mueller to appear on July 24, and to testify for an additional hour before House Judiciary.

In response to a query from Reuters, an aide to the House Judiciary Committee said in an email: "At this moment we still plan to have our hearing on the 17th and we will let you know if that changes".

"I think we have been arguing for as much time as we can get", Cicilline said.

Koscielny considers buying out £90k-per-week contract to leave Arsenal
Koscielny , who recovered from a ruptured achilles tendon last season, still has a year left on his contract at the Emirates . The Gunners have released a statement after the refusal of the Skipper Laurent Koscielny to involve in the pre-season tour.

In the past week, one lawmaker said members pressed leadership to negotiate with the Department of Justice, and Mueller's personal team, for more questioning time.

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.

But many Democrats were also concerned that the limited time period of roughly two hours before each committee wouldn't be enough time for Mueller's testimony to have an impact. Judiciary has 41 members.

Mueller spoke to the public briefly in May, saying that he could neither clear nor accuse Trump of obstructing justice, leaving room for Congress to make that call and fueling impeachment demands among some Democrats. The time crunch, however, has made their job hard, forcing Democrats to prioritize which episodes they would like to focus on. "A senior White House official told Fox News that the White House was advised on Tuesday night of Mueller's plans", adds the report. There's nothing Mueller "can say, he's written a report, it said, no collusion and it said effectively, no obstruction".

He said if he were Mueller, he would refuse to testify and tell House Democrats, "The short answer is no and the long answer is, hell no". "All they're doing is trying to hurt people". At the very least, his testimony is certain to provide the headline-grabbing, made-for-cable-television testimony that Democrats have been seeking since the 448-page redacted report was released April 18.
