Time reports, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a series of hearings on former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election — even though it is still unclear if Mueller himself will appear.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who chairs the committee, announced the series of hearings on Monday. The first hearing, scheduled for June 10, will focus on obstruction of justice. It will feature several attorneys including John Dean, the former White House counsel who testified against Richard Nixon during the Watergate hearings. Dean has publicly said Mueller’s report is “more damning” than other presidential investigations, including Watergate.
“Given the threat posed by the President’s alleged misconduct, our first hearing will focus on President Trump’s most overt acts of obstruction. In the coming weeks, other hearings will focus on other important aspects of the Mueller report,” Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler said in a statement Monday.
