WASHINGTON – Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III told Congress that his testimony will not deviate from the contents of his 448-page report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

“As I said on May 29, the report is my testimony. And I will stay within that text,” Mueller told the House Judiciary Committee during a Wednesday hearing.

Mueller said he will respect a Justice Department decision with regard to “asserted privileges concerning investigative information and decisions” as they may relate to ongoing investigations.
