Lawmakers considering one-week delay in Mueller testimony

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's blockbuster appearance before two House committees has been delayed until later this month.

The agreement to delay the hearings in exchange for extended testimony is not finalized, the sources said, and lawmakers are still negotiating.

The hearing was originally scheduled for July 17.

The hearing set for July 24 has been lengthened to three hours.

"A senior White House official told Fox News that the White House was advised on Tuesday night of Mueller's plans", adds the report.

The Judiciary Committee also sought to interview former Mueller aides Aaron Zebley and James Quarles behind closed doors. But Mueller had been expected to appear on Wednesday in separate two-hour public hearings before the Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

AT&T will introduce automatic blocking for robocalls 'over the coming months'
The first way is cumbersome but free, and the second way costs $4 a month but automatically sends the spam calls to voicemail. On Tuesday, AT&T became the first major USA wireless company to automatically block robocalls for its customers.

Mueller's offer to delay comes as House Democrats on the Judiciary panel pressed their leaders for more time to question Mueller. But some of the committee's 24 Democrats and 17 Republicans could still be left out.

"Every single member of the House Judiciary Committee, on the Democratic and the Republican side, should be able to participate in the hearing in some way, shape or form".

Democrats, too, had raised concerns about being denied the opportunity to question Mueller, and expressed hope that ongoing talks with him would yield an agreement for all of them to grill him for five minutes each. Reacting on "America's Newsroom", the Louisiana Republican said House Democrats want to pull Mueller into a political fight and don't want the Trump-Russia story to ever end.

Mueller said because of longstanding Justice Department regulations that a sitting president can not be indicted, his team of investigators didn't consider trying to indict Trump.

Trump has claimed Mueller's report exonerated the president of collusion and obstruction.
