Two U.S. House of Representatives panels plan to hear testimony from Special Counsel Robert Mueller on July 17, but there are reports today, Friday July 12, of a possible one-week delay that would push that date to July 24 or thereabouts.
The House Judiciary Committee is intensely negotiating to delay former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's testimony by one additional week, according to NBC News.
According to Reuters, the testimony is still on for the previously scheduled date of July 17.
The ongoing negotiations are said to be focused on providing lawmakers a longer time in which to question Mueller. No resolution yet, so no confirmed date for Mueller's testimony at this time, per NBC.
However: Reuters is still reporting that the July 17 date is on.
In response to a query from Reuters, a committee aide said in an email, “At this moment we still plan to have our hearing on the 17th and we will let you know if that changes.”
Politico reported that the hearing of the House Judiciary and the House Intelligence panels had been postponed until July 24, citing multiple lawmakers. And the Washington Post reported that Mueller has offered a delay until July 24 to spend more time answering questions from lawmakers.
