The House Intelligence Committee is giving Aaron Zebley —  a top aide to former special counsel Robert Mueller — the opportunity to testify alongside Mueller at the hearing the committee is hosting Wednesday.

At the start of the House Intel hearing, its chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said it was up to the committee who is sworn in and allowed to testify, despite the “angry man down the street who is not happy about you being here today,” an apparent reference to President Trump.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) — the top Republican on the committee — griped about Zebley’s participation.

During the House Judiciary Committee hearing with Mueller earlier Wednesday  Zebley was present but only to advise Mueller.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
