WASHINGTON (GrayDC) Before the month-long August recess, the U.S. House Democratic-controlled Judiciary and Intelligence committees will hold a joint hearing with former special counsel Robert Mueller about his two-year-long investigation into 2016 alleged Russian election meddling and the Trump campaign.

While Mueller released a 448-page report in April, many Democratic lawmakers continue to raise questions about whether Congress should further investigate whether Trump obstructed justice.

Largely, Republicans argue the case is closed and that Mueller’s report and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr cleared the President of any wrongdoing.

Rep. Bill Flores said the Mueller's conclusion "created unnecessary legal confusion".

'In the regulations, he was asked to come up with a charging decision or to prosecute and the reasons why or why not. That's what he was asked to do and he did not do that," said Flores.

The Texas congressman referred to the portion of the report where Mueller said the President did not commit a crime, but he also could not conclude President Trump was exonerated of any wrongdoing.
