Special Counsel Robert Mueller will make a public statement at the Department of Justice at 11am Wednesday as Democrats push for the investigator to testify before Congress.
“Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to deliver a statement on his investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election on Wednesday at 11 a.m. from the Justice Department,” reports Fox News.
“The Justice Department announced Mueller’s planned statement on Wednesday morning, but a senior White House official told Fox News that the White House was advised on Tuesday night of Mueller’s plans,” adds the article.
Author Michael Wolff now “claims that Robert Mueller drew up an obstruction of justice indictment against President Trump – but a spokesman for Mueller says the claim is wildly inaccurate.”
“Wolff’s follow-up anti-Trump book is scheduled to hit book stores on June 4 but The Guardian obtained an early copy. ‘Siege’ claims that Mueller ‘drew up a three-count obstruction of justice indictment against Donald Trump before deciding to shelve it,” reports Fox News.
“The documents described do not exist,” Mueller spokesman Peter Carr told Fox News.
Even liberal journalists questioned the veracity of claims made by “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff last year; with prominent New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman saying there are multiple “parts that are factually wrong.”
Haberman was speaking with CNN when she suddenly admitted that she could “see several places in the book that are wrong,” adding that Wolff “inaccurately describes a report” from her own newspaper.
“I believe parts of it, and then there are other parts of it that are factually wrong,” she told CNN. “I can see several places in the book that are wrong… So, for instance, he inaccurately describes a report in the New York Times. He inaccurately characterizes a couple of incidents that took place early on in the administration. He gets basic details wrong.”
