  • Mueller on the Hill: Testimony: Robert Mueller spent seven hours taking questions from lawmakers yesterday, but didn't go much further than what was in his report about Russian interference in the 2016 election. The former special counsel said the president was "generally untruthful" in his written responses to questions, that the investigation was not a "witch hunt," and that Russia's interference in the election is one of the biggest threats to democracy he's seen — and that it's still happening "as we sit here." Wash Post.

  • Mueller on the Hill: Takeaways: There were no big moments or soundbites that some Democrats had hoped for as Mueller appeared shaky and forgetful during much of the hours-long testimony. He said that a Justice Dept. policy prohibited him from considering whether to indict President Trump, though he could be indicted after he leaves office, and confirmed that the report did not exonerate Trump.
