Special Counsel Robert Mueller will finally break his silent silence on Wednesday to talk about the Russian probe.
Mueller & # 39; will make a statement about the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, & # 39; the office of the special council declared Wednesday morning shortly before the event was to take place. & # 39; This will only be an explanation, not a question and answer period to follow. & # 39;
His appearance is scheduled for 11:00 AM.
He takes no questions, according to the special consulting firm – an attitude that is already criticizing Democrats in Congress.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller will finally speak in public on Wednesday morning
Mueller has submitted a report of 448 pages to Attorney General Bill Barr, but has not yet publicly discussed this. The only glimpse of his views is a letter he wrote to Barr expressing concern about how Barr had presented his findings.
Mueller investigated ten cases of possible obstruction of justice by President Trump, but did not decide whether he should be prosecuted for the behavior that his report had set out. He also did not think the Trump campaign was conspicuous with the election hacking supported by the Russian government, although he was studying strict contact with Russia.
Rep. Gerry Connelly (D-Va.), A prominent home democrat, told CNN that he wanted Mueller to answer questions from the press, because it might be the only way to make decisions about releasing the report and describe to the public what was in it.
House-based Democrats and other committees want Mueller to seem to testify about the report, but negotiations still have to bear fruit in the midst of a wide-ranging collision with the White House of Trump about documents and access to information.
