Former special counsel Robert Mueller said the “report is my testimony” as he read his opening statement to Congress.
“This deserves the attention of every American,” Mueller said Wednesday, opening testimony that largely tracked with the details of his investigation of the Kremlin’s efforts to sway the election that put Donald Trump in office.
Mueller began testifying before Congress on Wednesday at the start of a pair of hearings that Democrats hope could change the trajectory of Donald Trump’s presidency, though it became apparent soon after the start of his remarks that he was unlikely to offer information beyond what had been detailed in his office’s final report.
