Mueller’s testimony poses risk for Trump, but also Democrats
WASHINGTON (AP) — Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress will depend not so much on what he says, but that he’s even saying it at all.
The special counsel’s appearance Wednesday creates a moment many have waited for: Mueller finally speaking out, piercing the public consciousness about President Donald Trump’s response to the Russia investigation and whether anything should be done about it.
The political stakes are high for the president, but also for congressional Democrats.
Democrats are counting on Americans hearing what most have not likely read in Mueller’s 448-page report. Yet there’s a real possibility Mueller not bring clarity.
As the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee ready to gavel in Wednesday, the buttoned-down prosecutor who was once envisioned as a trusted last word may leave more questions than answers.
