House Democrats to Hold Hearing on ‘Presidential Obstruction’
House Judiciary Committee Democrats will hold a hearing Monday on the Robert Mueller report, “presidential obstruction,” and other crimes.
The House Judiciary Committee, led by chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) will hold a hearing on Monday at 2:00 p.m. EST on the Mueller report, “presidential obstruction,” and other crimes.
“No one is above the law. While the White House continues to cover up and stonewall, and to prevent the American people from knowing the truth, we will continue to move forward with our investigation,” Nadler said in a statement this week, announcing the hearing, entitled, “Lessons From the Mueller Report: Presidential Obstruction and Other Crimes.”
The hearing will include testimony from former White House counsel John Dean, who was a key figure in the Watergate hearings that led to Richard Nixon’s resignation. Dean cooperated with the Watergate special prosecutor after pleading guilty to obstruction of justice.
These hearings will allow us to examine the findings laid out in Mueller’s report so that we can work to protect the rule of law and protect future elections through consideration of legislative and other remedies. 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.
