Donald Trump went to Twitter to talk about the testimony of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller before the House lawmakers would leave tomorrow, where his assistant will be allowed to advise him.
The president went to Twitter to express his anger at Mueller's testimony, where his assistant Aaron Zebley will sit next to him and advise his answers, calling it & # 39; very unfair & # 39; and that the & # 39; may not be allowed & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I have just returned to hear that a change has occurred at the last minute to help a Never Trumper lawyer Robert Mueller with his testimony before Congress tomorrow. What a shame for our system. Never heard of it, & tweeted Trump Tuesday night.
He echoed his famous expression about the Russian probe and again referred him as a & # 39; rigged witch hunt & # 39 ;.
Although Democrats have rejected Mueller & # 39; s shocking last-minute request to have Zebley sworn in as a witness for Tuesday's testimony, the assistant may sit next to Mueller and advise him.
Donald Trump went to Twitter tomorrow to smoke about the testimony of Special Counsel Robert Mueller for the House Committee where his top assistant Aaron Zebley can advise him
The president called Mueller Aaron Zebley's top assistant a & # 39; Never Trumper & # 39; after learning that he will sit next to Mueller and advise his answers during his testimony to the House lawmakers on Wednesday, and calls it & # 39; very unfair & # 39; and that the & # 39; should not be allowed & # 39;
Mueller made the request so that Zebley could follow his testimony and answer questions that he might not be able to answer himself.
Zebley was Mueller's Chief of Staff when he was FBI Director and helped him prepare for his testimony.
He previously worked in the FBI counter-terrorism department, followed Mueller to a private practice and then joined the Russian probe. He also left when Mueller retired in May 2019 and helped him set up his blockbuster.
Unlike Trump & # 39; s angry tweet Tuesday night, there is no evidence that Zebley is a & # 39; Never Trumper & # 39; is. He has no political gift history, according to the Washington Post.
The Judicial Committee refused to update the guidelines to include Zebley as a witness, which means that according to Wednesday's statement, he will not be sworn in NBC.
However, Zebley will sit next to Mueller as his counsel and may be transferred to questions that he himself cannot answer.
Wednesday's meeting will answer tight Mueller questions about his intensive two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections and their influence on Donald Trump
Aaron Zebley is Mueller & # 39; s years of top aid. He worked under Mueller when he was FBI director, followed him in private practice, joined the Russian probe and retired with Mueller
At the Wednesday meeting, tight-fitting Mueller will answer questions about his intensive two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections and their influence on Donald Trump.
He first answers questions for three hours before the House Judiciary Committee and then appears for at least two additional hours before the House Intelligence Committee.
The request for Zebley to be sworn in and testify with Mueller led Tuesday to anger among the Republicans.
Republican Republican Doug Collins from Georgia issued an angry statement on Tuesday.
& # 39; Less than 24 hours before Robert Mueller arrives, the chairman again allows the affairs of the committee to turn into chaos. If that is true, the unprecedented decision of the president to advise a witness both to him privately and to testify at the same time, to show that the democrats will make an effort to protect a one-sided story against a thorough investigation by commission Republicans, & fumed Collins.
Collins complained about the issue & # 39; would now jeopardize whether tomorrow's hearing meets House rules & # 39; and called it an & # 39; apparent stunt & # 39 ;.
Georgia (R) Republican Doug Collins Top Commission accused Judge Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., Of pulling a & # 39; stunt & # 39;
A Nadler spokesperson said the only planned witness for now is Mueller.
The move follows a letter with the Ministry of Justice Monday, Mueller warned in a letter that his testimony must remain within limits, the public report. & # 39; As you testify, the department understands that testimonies related to the work of the Special Counsel's office will be governed by the conditions you outlined on May 29, & # 39; said it, referring to a comment that the report is & # 39; my testimony & & # 39 ;. & # 39;
A senior Justice Department official said edited parts should not be disclosed & # 39; and advised him to & # 39; unloaded third parties & # 39; not to discuss. It also cites executive privilege for matters outside the public report.
It was not immediately clear whether Zebley would talk to certain things would be a way around the warning.
Pan President Rep. Jerry Nadler told CNN on Tuesday that the lease was not binding and he hopes that Mueller will not be led by it.
