DOJ Instructs Mueller Deputies Not To Appear For Testimony

He was "disappointed" Democrats had issued subpoenas to compel Mueller's testimony. Several Republicans accused Nadler, a Democrat from NY, of ceding to the House Intelligence Committee when agreeing to allow 22 lawmakers on the 40-plus member Judiciary Committee to question Mueller.

Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, the committee's top Republican, was among the members who described a format that would have Mueller leave to appear before the House Intelligence Committee, a smaller panel where all members are expected to have time to ask questions.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller will testify in front of the U.S. House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

The committee agreed to an amended resolution by a party-line vote of 21-12.

Nadler mostly ignored their protests at Thursday's hearing, although he did offer to "entertain any reasonable discussions" about the format of the hearing. "We've got two hours with the Judiciary and Mr. Mueller, and two hours for the Intel committee with Mr. Mueller, and then some time afterwards with his staff".

The dozen witnesses - which also include former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, former Trump aide Rob Porter and former chief of staff John Kelly - all delivered key testimony to the special counsel about Trump's attempts to stop the Russian Federation probe into him and his associates. "But I'm not going to comment on it further", Nadler said.

A little more than four months ago, Nadler's committee cast a wide net for documents from an array of 80 individuals and entities, seeking information on a range of inquiries into Trump's administration, campaign, business and personal finances.

Trump also weighed in as Thursday's Judiciary Committee hearing got underway. "The Committee will also move forward with our efforts to request information from critical witnesses as part of our ongoing investigation into obstruction, corruption and abuse of power by the President and his associates".

"We will not rest until we obtain their testimony and documents so this committee and Congress can do the work the Constitution and the American people expect of us", said Rep. Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the committee. "We have been doing that through pursuing the unredacted Mueller reporter and key related witnesses and documents", Nadler said.
