EXISTING GRAPHICS MAY BE OVERWRITTEN BY CLIENT'S OWN GRAPHICS BUT NO FURTHER EDITS ARE PERMITTED, INCLUDING FOR LENGTH** When asked if he was worried about Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday said that he would 'maybe' watch 'a little bit' of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's public testimony before Congress on Wednesday.
"I'm not going to be watching, probably, maybe I'll see a little bit of it, I'm not going to be watching Mueller," Trump said.
Trump reiterated that there was a 'no collusion' finding and said Mueller was 'conflicted'.
On Sunday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said he believes there is "substantial evidence" that Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors, and he plans to ask former Special Counsel Robert Mueller to present those facts at a congressional hearing on Wednesday.
Nadler's comments are significant because evidence of such crimes would be required if Democrats pursue impeachment proceedings against the president.
Mueller completed his nearly two-year long probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election in March, and the Justice Department released a redacted copy of his report in April.
In two nationally televised back-to-back hearings on Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees, Democrats are expected to try and get Mueller to focus his testimony on specific examples of Trump's misconduct.
By having Mueller lay bare the unflattering details of how Trump tried to stymie the investigation into his campaign, Democrats hope they can build support for their ongoing investigations into the president and potentially, impeachment proceedings.
The Mueller report laid out numerous contacts between Russian officials and Trump's campaign, but found no evidence of a criminal conspiracy.
It also gave examples of 10 incidents in which Trump sought to hinder the investigation, but it did not draw any conclusions on whether Trump obstructed justice.
Attorney General William Barr later concluded he did not see enough evidence to bring obstruction charges.
Whether Democrats will get Mueller to discuss Trump's conduct in detail remains to be seen.
