Recap: Mueller’s Testimony Before House Committees
Republicans and Democrats are both claiming victory after nearly six hours of grueling testimony from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
During his testimony, Mueller did not clear President Trump of all wrongdoing. But he left any action against the president up to Congress.
Mueller sat before two House committees Wednesday to answer questions about his 448-page report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
According to Mueller’s report, the special counsel did not find evidence of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.
But it did lay out several acts of potential Obstruction of Justice by President Trump.
The former special counsel clarified that while his investigation could not indict the president, it also did not exonerate him as President Trump had claimed after the report was released earlier this year.
Democrats are now wrestling with whether to move forward with impeachment proceedings.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Democrats are working through the courts to try to get the White House to cooperate with their ongoing investigations.
And the House Judiciary Committee plans to file lawsuits this week to get more information about the Mueller report and to enforce a subpoena against Former White House Counsel Donald McGahn.
