Robert Mueller is scheduled to testify before Congress on July 17. Will this be a breakthrough moment? Will he testify that Trump obstructed justice? That Trump collaborated with the Russian meddling in the elections? And no matter what he says, what should Congress do next?
For this installment of Other Voices, we’ll take a close look at what the Mueller report actually says about Russian meddling and Trump’s obstruction. We’ll examine what to expect when Mueller testifies and, perhaps more importantly, what not to expect. And we’ll discuss where Congress needs to focus after the testimony.
Join us and get your questions answered and share your thoughts about Congressional action.
