Republicans Are Inviting McCarthy To Speak
Rep. Devin Nunes revealed that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee will also be calling former U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy as a witness this week, Washington Examiner reported. He was invited to “hopefully have a little bit of balance” with the other witnesses. It’s not clear if McCarthy is scheduled for today or another day.
A House Judiciary Committee hearing took place on Monday covering Volume 2 of the Mueller Report and the obstruction question. John Dean, counsel for the former President Nixon, was interviewed.
Mueller Won’t Be Testifying
Mueller has said that he prefers not to testify, CBS reported. He said: “Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. It contains our findings and analysis, and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself. The report is my testimony. I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress.”
