Mueller's investigation did not find evidence of collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump 2016 presidential campaign.
The House Judiciary Committee is discussing delaying public testimony from special counsel Robert Mueller one week until July 24 to allow more time for Mueller to testify, according to sources familiar with the matter.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, House Democratic Caucus chairman and Judiciary member, told reporters he's continuing to operate under the assumption that Mr. Mueller will come to testify on July 17, as originally planned.
As his hearing approached, junior members have been grousing about their apparent inability to get the chance to ask questions in the tight format.
So one reason for a delay could be to permit more time for negotiations within Congress over the ground rules for the hearings.
"Whenever the hearing takes place, it's important that every single member of the House Democratic Caucus who serves on the Judiciary Committee participates in the Mueller hearing", he said.More news: Agent Smith malware keeps on harming millions of Android devices

"I think we have been arguing for as much time as we can get", Cicilline said.
News of the delay perplexed some Judiciary Committee members, who seemed unsure exactly what had happened or where the negotiations between the committee and Mueller stood.
Democrats who favor impeachment efforts against President Trump have hoped that testimony by Mueller about his report's findings would further fuel their effort.
But many Democrats were also concerned that the limited time period of roughly two hours before each committee wouldn't be enough time for Mueller's testimony to have an impact.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller officially concluded the two-year long investigation into allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 election Wednesday; closing his office and retiring from the Department of Justice.
In April, Mueller submitted the findings of his almost two-year investigation to the Justice Department. At the very least, his testimony is certain to provide the headline-grabbing, made-for-cable-television testimony that Democrats have been seeking since the 448-page redacted report was released April 18. Under the original plan, after the open hearing with Mueller, House Democrats had proposed to question Mueller and his top lieutenants in private for an hour.
