Texas Rep. Will Hurd said no new information will come out of Mueller testimony
Before the month-long August recess, the U.S. House Democratic-controlled Judiciary and Intelligence committees will hold a joint hearing with former special counsel Robert Mueller about his two-year-long investigation into 2016 alleged Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign.
While Mueller released a 448-page report in April, many Democratic lawmakers continue to raise questions about whether Congress should further investigate whether Trump obstructed justice.
Largely, Republicans argue the case is closed and that Mueller’s report and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr cleared the President of any wrongdoing.
Texas Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) said he is looking forward to asking Mueller questions about how to prevent disinformation in the future.
"He knows more about what the Russians try to do in our elections. I'm going to try to get into some suggestions on how we prepare and deal with disinformation in the future," said Hurd.
