WASHINGTON (GrayDC) 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 Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said the situation is marred in politics. Cornyn said he believes Mueller will stick strictly with the report.
"This has gotten to be a political circus and not really a matter of finding facts. He did an extensive report with dozens of lawyers, accountants and other investigators," he said.
Cornyn said he believes Mueller did not find sufficient evidence to charge the President with any wrongdoing.
'The rest of this ultimately is spin," he said.
