The White House announced it has no plans of blocking Robert Mueller from appearing on Capitol Hill for his highly-anticipated testimony. Mueller will testify in an open session before both the House Judiciary Committee and Intelligence Committee next month.

While many lawmakers say there are several unanswered questions about Mueller’s investigation, the president’s legal team doesn’t believe he will reveal any new information during his hearing. However, they don’t think that will stop Democrats from asking Mueller about his decision not to exonerate the president for obstruction.

“If you look at Volume II of the report, which is the obstruction provision, the whole process is turned upside down. I think the biggest question Bob Mueller’s gonna have to ask himself is, or be asked is, ‘do you really think it’s the job of the Special Counsel to exonerate someone?’ ”
