Mueller to testify July 24 — but to what end?

Mueller to testify July 24 — but to what end?

[Ed. – Unless Mueller opens about his favorite color and similarly gripping topics, it’s not likely Dems will hear anything new.]

Former special counsel Robert Mueller’s long-anticipated appearance before two House committees was moved back a week at his request. But with few members even taking the time to read his 448-page report, drafted at the conclusion of his 22-month investigation, it’s not likely to accomplish much of anything.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., announced the change in a joint statement released Friday.

“The House Judiciary Committee will convene on July 24 at 8:30am with Special Counsel Mueller testifying in public for three hours,” the statement said. “After a brief break, the House Intelligence Committee will convene for additional public testimony beginning at 12:00pm. All members — Democrats and Republicans — of both committees will have a meaningful opportunity to question the Special Counsel in public, and the American people will finally have an opportunity to hear directly from Mr. Mueller about what his investigation uncovered.”
