Washington, DC - Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will be in the spotlight on Capitol Hill today.
Mueller will testify in back-to-back hearings of the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. He is a reluctant witness and had to be subpoenaed. Mueller has said his roughly 400 page report speaks for itself. He's also said that he will not speak beyond what is in his report.
Mueller and his team spent nearly two years investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
President Trump often argues that Mueller found "no collusion" and "no obstruction." The report does not exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice. Mueller's report also cited insufficient evidence to pursue conspiracy charges.
Democrats are hoping to get Muller to say that if not for existing Department of Justice rules the President would have been criminally charged. That conclusion, however, rests outside of the Mueller's final report.
Republicans say that the left is "beating a dead hoax."
NewsRadio 570 WSYR will be airing coverage of the hearings.
