Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee announced Monday that they would convene a hearing with John Dean, the former White House counsel to Richard Nixon and a key figure in the Watergate scandal, in an effort to keep the public focus on the Mueller report.
The announcement said the scheduled June 10 hearing would be one of a series “focused on the alleged crimes and other misconduct laid out in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.” Mueller himself was not scheduled to appear.
“We have learned so much even from the redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report,” committee chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said in a statement. “Russia attacked our elections to help President Trump win, Trump and his campaign welcomed this help and the President then tried to obstruct the investigation into the attack. Mueller confirmed these revelations and has now left Congress to pick up where he left off.” #MuellerReport #DonaldTrump #Trump
