Special Counsel Robert Mueller will make his first public statement since the conclusion of the Russia investigation Wednesday.
According to NBC News:
Special counsel Robert Mueller will make a public statement at 11 a.m. Wednesday on the Russia investigation, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday.
“Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III will make a statement on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election,” the department said. “This will be a statement only, no question and answer period to follow.”
Mueller has not made any comment on the investigation since he was named special counsel in May 2017. House Democrats are seeking to have him testify before Congress in the coming weeks.
Mueller’s planned remarks come after a new book reportedly asserted that Mueller drew up a three-count obstruction of justice indictment against President Donald Trump before deciding to abandon it. A spokesman for the special counsel’s office denied any indictment had been drafted.
The special counsel’s office shot down the new assertion that an indictment was drafted and waiting to be filed on President Trump.
