Mueller makes deal with Congress, setting date for controversial testimony

The democrats finally hooked their big fish, but at what cost?

As the rest of the legislative calendar continues to grind to a halt, congressional democrats have finally hooked their big fish.

Much of the reason for this stagnation has been “the resistance” – an unofficial and wide-ranging conglomerate of anti-Trump politicians who refuse to agree with the President on any single subject. The reason for this obstinance is purely political, as these democrats don’t want to appear weak in the eyes of voters who are heading to the polls in 2020.

The downside, of course, is that the nation is no longer progressing as intended.

The reason for the holdup now is the testimony of Robert Mueller, which the democrats hope will enlighten the public and lawmakers on the ins-and-outs of his 22 month investigation into Russia election meddling in 2016.

The democrats finally have a date for this spectacle.

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will give extended testimony as part of a deal for him to appear before congressional lawmakers later this month, Democratic Party officials said Friday.

Mueller’s highly anticipated appearance was pushed back at his request, Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in a joint statement.

“We are pleased to announce that Special Counsel Mueller will provide additional public testimony when he appears before our committees,” they said.

The hearing will take place one week later than originally planned.

“The House Judiciary Committee will convene on July 24 at 8:30 a.m. with Special Counsel Mueller testifying in public for three hours.  After a brief break, the House Intelligence Committee will convene for additional public testimony beginning at 12 p.m.,” the statement continued.

Former Special Counsel Mueller has been publicly reluctant to testify, and his indicated that he does not intend to provide any information that isn’t already available in this 440+ page report.
