Former special counsel Robert Mueller’s hearing before Congress could be delayed by one week to July 24, Politico reported Friday. The hearing was originally scheduled for July 17.

CNN reported that the House Judiciary Committee is discussing the delay to allow more time for Mueller to testify and that lawmakers are still negotiating.

However, House Judiciary spokesperson Danny Schwarz told reporters Friday that Mueller’s testimony is still on for July 17 as of now.

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.
