Activists and Celebrities Will Comment During Livestream on What Public Should Look for During Historic Congressional Q&A With Former Russia Investigation Special Counsel
WHAT: Members of Congress, activists and celebrities will join a day-long broadcast and online discussion of the historic testimony of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s back-to-back appearances before the U.S. House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on Wednesday.
Mueller’s investigation revealed that President Donald Trump’s aides and family members sought to benefit from a Russian intelligence source. The probe also uncovered criminal activities that led to:
- 37 indictments;
- Seven convictions or guilty pleas; and
- At least 10 possible instances of obstruction of justice, some of which involved President Donald Trump lying to investigators.
If an everyday American participated in any of these activities, they would be indicted and likely sentenced to federal prison. But because Trump is president of the United States, internal U.S. Justice Department protocols prohibit his indictment. Now it is up to Congress to secure the rest of the facts for the American people and hold the president and his associates accountable.
Public Citizen is teaming up with the Mueller Book Club to provide journalists and the public with resources both during and after tomorrow’s historic hearings. Special guests, including U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Rob Reiner, among others, will participate in the online broadcast to provide their insights on Mueller’s testimony.
WHEN: 8:15 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. EDT, Wed., July 24
