Mueller’s hearing before Congress postponed till July 24

House considering a delay of Robert Mueller’s testimony

Former special counsel Robert Mueller

The sizable Judiciary Committee will now have three hours with Mr. Mueller, up from roughly two, allowing most of the lawmakers on the panel to ask questions.

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.

"Whenever the hearing takes place, it's important that every single member of the House Democratic Caucus who serves on the Judiciary Committee participates in the Mueller hearing", Democratic Caucus Chair and Judiciary member Hakeem Jeffries told reporters. He will then testify before the House intelligence committee in a separate hearing.

The negotiations are ongoing, but an agreement under discussion would push the hearing to July 24 and give lawmakers more time for questioning. The statement said the postponement was "at his request".

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller, in his first public appearance since being appointed to lead the Russian Federation investigation, said it was "not an option" to charge President Trump with a crime, per Department of Justice policy, but maintained that if they had "confidence" that the president did not commit a crime, they 'would have said so, '" reports Fox News.

On June 25, Nadler and Schiff compelled Mueller, through a subpoena, to appear before Congress to testify on the findings of his report, even though Mueller had said during a rare press conference on May 29 that he did not want to speak further and to refer to the report as his testimony.

In the report, he said they didn't find evidence of a criminal conspiracy but said they also weren't exonerating Trump of obstructing justice, and included 10 instances in which the president tried to derail his investigation. He found no evidence of collusion between President Trump and Russian Federation, a point Trump has consistently noted via social media.

Saying that Mr. Mueller has already made clear his conclusions, the president added, "You can only get so many bites at the apple".

"The American people will finally have an opportunity to hear directly from Mueller about what his investigation uncovered", as well as his relation with President Trump's campaign, the joint statement said.

A Judiciary Committee spokesman emphasized that next week's hearing is still on the books.

Mature special counsel Robert Mueller's hearing looks to be in flux Friday after reports surfaced that the testimony would be delayed.

The decision was announced as the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committee were deep in preparations to question Mr Mueller in what is likely to be a major political spectacle.

But the committees are no longer expected to hear from two Mueller deputies - Aaron Zebley and James Quarles - on the same day, according to two sources familiar with the matter. At a separate hearing on Thursday, several Republicans complained about the setup.

It's unclear whether Mueller's testimony will give Democratic investigations new momentum.

They continued: "After a brief break, the House intelligence committee will convene for additional public testimony beginning at 12:00 p.m".
