Mueller to testify before two House committees in July

ABC News reported Tuesday evening that the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committee has ordered special counsel Robert Mueller to testify before Congress in July.

The press release issued Tuesday evening said: "Pursuant to subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence tonight, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III has agreed to testify before both committees on July 17 in open session."

In response to this news, President Donald Trump's lead attorney Jay Sekulow told ABC News, "Bob Mueller agreed to testify. He already said his testimony will be his report. We expect his testimony will be the report."

According to ABC News, the redacted report that Attorney General William Barr released in April 2018 found no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, but “it declined to make a prosecutorial decision on whether the president obstructed justice during the course of the 22-month-long investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.”
