Keep Expectations Low for Mueller's July Congressional Testimony

"But the problem for Democrats is that Mueller will not provide any new information", he wrote. "And that's illegal. That's a crime", Trump said in an interview with Fox Business Network, referring to two former Federal Bureau of Investigation employees who exchanged disparaging messages about the president.

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) explained on Fox News Tuesday that Democrats' decision to subpoena Robert Mueller to testify before Congress will "blow up in their face". For many, it has become a psychosis that consumes them. He will be questioned separately by the two committees on July 17, according to a congressional aide.

Robert Mueller has been reluctant to testify before the House-but he has decided not to defy subpoenas.

"The American people get a chance to hear from him directly and have their questions answered", he added.

That's it, your advance preview. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif. The report examined several episodes in which Trump attempted to influence the investigation.

Angela Merkel seen shaking uncontrollably for second time in month
Germany has the strongest economy in the bloc and Mrs Merkel is often described as the most powerful female leader in the world. The chancellor has a reputation for stamina garnered in years of late-night domestic and European negotiating marathons.


Nadler and Schiff say that Americans have "demanded to hear directly" from Mueller "about Russia's attack on our democracy [and] the Trump campaign's acceptance and use of that help". Although Mueller concluded that the Russians' involvement in the election was illegal, the Trump's campaign ties to the Russians did not amount to a criminal conspiracy.

For his part, President Trump has insisted Congress can not impeach him and claimed the Mueller report contained fabricated testimony.

It will be the first time Mueller has been questioned by Congress over his report into Russian interference in the USA election.

In one of the more controversial messages, during the leadup to the 2016 presidential election, Strzok told Page about the need for an "insurance policy" to guarantee Trump never took office.

In his remarks to ABC News, Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow recalled that Mueller said his testimony would be his report. The words in the report were chosen "carefully and the work speaks for itself".

"The report is my testimony", he said. Such an alternative was due to the Justice Department's regulations that prohibit filing charges against an acting USA president, Mueller added in his first public appearance, after the report on the investigation was released in April. "In fact, the attorney general felt free to mischaracterize the report". "We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime".

Schiff tells me that beyond whether criminality occurred, another big question is whether there were "conflicts of interest" that "resulted in US policy favoring Russian Federation against the interests of the American people". If something like that had existed, Muller would have already published it. The Mueller report established extensive connections between various Trumpworld figures and Russia that constituted efforts to conspire with Russian electoral sabotage.

A report from the Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) past year found that the Federal Bureau of Investigation failed to properly document some 19,000 text messages on agency cell phones, including communications between Strzok and Page.

Mueller's hearing is scheduled for July 17th.
