Special counsel Robert Mueller will break his silence Wednesday about his 22-month investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign and Russian interference in the election.
The former FBI director will speak at 11 a.m. ET at the Department of Justice. The event will be streamed live, according to a press release. Mueller will not take questions.
Mueller’s remarks come less than a week after House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said that Mueller wanted to testify privately to Congress about the probe. Some Democrats pushed for Mueller to testify publicly. President Donald Trump has said that Mueller should not testify.
The White House was advised Tuesday that Mueller “may make a statement,” a senior administration official said.
Mueller and his team of prosecutors have been tight-lipped about their inquiry, releasing new information rarely and generally in the form of unsealed indictments. The DOJ released a partially redacted version of Mueller’s 448-page report last month.
