Special counsel Robert Mueller's hearing could be delayed

Special counsel Robert Mueller's hearing could be delayed

Former special counsel Robert Mueller is offering to postpone his congressional testimony by one week to give lawmakers more time to question him about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump.

A senior source said there was a "breakdown in negotiations" to have Robert Mueller appear.

A Democratic aide now says that date date has now been moved until June 24.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, House Democratic Caucus chairman and Judiciary member, told reporters he's continuing to operate under the assumption that Mr. Mueller will come to testify on July 17, as originally planned.

The issue of time has been a major bone of contention, according to the Democratic aide. But Mueller had been expected to appear on Wednesday in separate two-hour public hearings before the Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

"Nothing the report said will change between now and July 24th".

Liverpool boss Klopp excited by 19 year-old
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that Rhian Brewster can play a major role at the club this season. However, Jurgen Klopp chose to keep him at Anfield and that proved to be an inspired decision.

As his hearing approached, junior members have been grousing about their apparent inability to get the chance to ask questions in the tight format.

Democrats have also privately-and publicly-stated concerns about some members being excluded from questioning Mueller due to time constraints. And those on the Judiciary Committee who weren't in line to get questions were up in arms they might not get their shot to question Mueller with millions tuning in.

One of the people said the hearing would be delayed a week, to July 24.

"I'll be disappointed, but I'm hopeful", Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Madeleine Dean, a Judiciary Committee member, said Thursday.

Despite the word of the delay, Nadler spokesperson Daniel Schwarz said Friday morning there was nothing to report. He would not confirm whether Mueller's testimony, which was secured after a subpoena was issued to the former head of the Russian Federation probe into election interference, had been delayed. It isn't clear when new hearings might take place. For instance, administration lawyers who accompanied Hope Hicks to a closed-door interview with the Judiciary Committee interjected scores of times to advise her against asking virtually anything about her time in the White House.

Mueller addressed the public from the Department of Justice earlier this year following his "No Collusion" conclusion; telling the American people any Congressional testimony would be confined to the contents of his report.
