Justice Department tells Mueller to ‘Remain Within the Boundaries’ of Redacted Report During Upcoming House Testimony

The Justice Department told former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, by letter, that his upcoming testimony to House lawmakers on July 24 “must remain within the boundaries” of the redacted public version of his report.

In the letter, the DOJ also told Mr. Mueller that he could not “discuss the conduct of uncharged third parties” including President Trump, his family and his closest associates, and also could not discuss “the redacted portions of the public version of your report.”

“Should you testify, the department understands that testimony regarding the work of the special counsel’s office will be governed by the terms you outlined on May 29”, referring to the public news conference where Robert Mueller stated he would reluctantly appear before lawmakers but would only discuss matters that were contained in his 448 page report.

The letter also sarcastically said, “The department generally does not permit prosecutors such as you to appear and testify before Congress regarding their investigative and prosecutorial activity”.
