House Democrats reportedly plan to use former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony to highlight instances where they claim President Donald Trump sought to obstruct the Russia investigation.
Reuters reported that congressional aides revealed, on a condition of anonymity, their goal is to get Mueller — through carefully planned and orchestrated questions — to give a “meaningful and compelling” account of Trump’s wrongdoing.
“Much of the questioning will center on former White House Counsel Don McGahn, whom Mueller said Trump directed to remove the special counsel and then to deny he was told to do so. McGahn refused to carry out Trump’s instructions,” according to Reuters.
Trump has denied he directed McGahn to fire Mueller but did question whether the special counsel was conducting a fair investigation, in light of the “18 angry Democrats” hired to conduct the probe.
The Mueller team included multiple donors to Trump’s 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton, such as prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who attended her election night party, and Jeannine Rhee who represented the Clinton Foundation in 2015 case, according to Politifact.
