Robert Mueller's hearing could be delayed

Mueller hearing might be delayed and lengthened so more members can question him

Mueller is scheduled to testify before the two committees in open session.

It noted the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees have been in talks to give lawmakers additional time to question Mueller. Judiciary has 41 members.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller officially concluded the two-year long investigation into allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 election Wednesday; closing his office and retiring from the Department of Justice.

As initially planned, each committee would have had just two hours to question Mueller, and more junior lawmakers on the Judiciary panel would have been shut out.

The House Judiciary Committee delayed the former special counsel's testimony until July 24th. Zebley, who is considered to be Mueller's closest associate, served as the prosecutor's chief of staff when he was F.B.I. director and functioned in a similar role during the special counsel's investigation, coordinating the legal teams.

He said he had decided himself that "any testimony from this office will not go beyond our report", during a statement read at the Department of Justice.

Mueller and the two House panels struck a deal Friday to reschedule his testimony for July 24, as part of an agreement that gives lawmakers more time to question him about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump. It made no closing suggestion on whether or not there was obstruction of justice by Trump.

The Judiciary Committee has more members than the intelligence committee.

NFL Looking At 18-Game Season With 16 Games Per Player Limit
The current CBA will expire in 2021. "For us, it comes down to who players are as men, and is it good for us", Smith told ESPN . The NFLPA will fight hard to keep the season at 16 games, regardless of the olive branch of giving every player two games off.

The questions surrounding the hearing threatened to distract from the Democrats' intended goal: highlighting the contents of Mueller's 448-page report for Americans who they believe have not read it.

Mueller will now appear before the House Judiciary Committee and House Intelligence Committee on July 24 for two separate hearings.

"There's nothing Mueller "can say", Trump said".

One thing Judiciary members want to focus on in questioning Mueller is whether Trump would have been charged with a crime were he not president.

That being said, I am not sure that the format of these anticipated hearings, where each member gets roughly five minutes to question the witness, is far from ideal.

Republican protests about the arrangements boiled over earlier this week, when Republicans accused Schiff of upstaging the Judiciary Committee, despite its primary jurisdiction over special counsel investigations.

It wasn't immediately clear why the new date made a difference or whether Nadler specifically might be able to relax some of the potential restrictions he'd been contemplating before. 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.
