It looks like the former U.S. Attorneys testifying at today's House Judiciary Committee hearing on "Lessons from the Mueller Report" will be constrained by rules of decorum… pic.twitter.com/kyPqPFtjlz— Todd Ruger (@ToddRuger) June 10, 2019

Also testifying is @malcolm_john, who will speak about why he is "less enthusiastic" about the obstruction of justice section of the Mueller report, in part because the special counsel failed to make a prosecution decision https://t.co/gPn4kTO7mB pic.twitter.com/kd9pAvKfZ3— Todd Ruger (@ToddRuger) June 10, 2019

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who announced the hearing on June 3rd, said in a statement, “We have learned so much even from the redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Russia attacked our elections to help President Trump win, Trump and his campaign welcomed this help and the President then tried to obstruct the investigation into the attack. Mueller confirmed these revelations and has now left Congress to pick up where he left off.”
He concluded his statement by saying, “Given the threat posed by the President’s alleged misconduct, our first hearing will focus on President Trump’s most overt acts of obstruction. In the coming weeks, other hearings will focus on other important aspects of the Mueller report.”
