Rep. Comer says he wants to know why Mueller investigation started

News

WASHINGTON D.C. (ABC) – Former special counsel Robert Mueller will take the stand on Capitol Hill Wednesday for his highly anticipated testimony.

Mueller will appear before two Congressional committees to detail the findings of his report into Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

He will first testify before the House Judiciary Committee for three hours.

Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) said, “Personally, I would like to know the genesis of the investigation. I mean, from reading the Mueller Report, I have come to the conclusion, like most of America, that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Therefore, something had to trigger the investigation to begin with.”

Mueller has said in the past that the report speaks for itself and he will not provide any more information that isn’t public.

Eyewitness News will carry ABC’s special coverage of the testimony on Tristatehomepage.com.
