US House will press Mueller for more information

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Significance

Mueller issued his extensive report in April, a part-redacted version of which was made public. He will testify to a Democratic-led House that believes there is more to come out about the 2016 election and President Donald Trump. They also have political reasons for keeping the pressure on Trump and his administration before the November 2020 elections.

Impacts

  • Any new information or insights Mueller adds will be incorporated into House investigations of Trump.
  • Mueller’s testimony could help the search for bipartisan consensus over election security.
  • The testimony is unlikely to lead to a greater risk of Trump or Barr being impeached and removed.
