Special Counsel Robert Mueller will make a public statement at the Department of Justice at 11am Wednesday as Democrats push for the investigator to testify before Congress.
“Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to deliver a statement on his investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election on Wednesday at 11 a.m. from the Justice Department,” reports Fox News.
“The Justice Department announced Mueller’s planned statement on Wednesday morning, but a senior White House official told Fox News that the White House was advised on Tuesday night of Mueller’s plans,” adds the article.
Author Michael Wolff now “claims that Robert Mueller drew up an obstruction of justice indictment against President Trump – but a spokesman for Mueller says the claim is wildly inaccurate.”
“Wolff’s follow-up anti-Trump book is scheduled to hit book stores on June 4 but The Guardian obtained an early copy. ‘Siege’ claims that Mueller ‘drew up a three-count obstruction of justice indictment against Donald Trump before deciding to shelve it,” reports Fox News.
“The documents described do not exist,” Mueller spokesman Peter Carr told Fox News.
Even liberal journalists questioned the veracity of claims made by “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff last year; with prominent New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman saying there are multiple “parts that are factually wrong.”
Haberman was speaking with CNN when she suddenly admitted that she could “see several places in the book that are wrong,” adding that Wolff “inaccurately describes a report” from her own newspaper.
“I believe parts of it, and then there are other parts of it that are factually wrong,” she told CNN. “I can see several places in the book that are wrong… So, for instance, he inaccurately describes a report in the New York Times. He inaccurately characterizes a couple of incidents that took place early on in the administration. He gets basic details wrong.”

Bernie’s comments come just hours after the special counsel concluded his two-year investigation into the Trump campaign; telling DOJ officials there was no evidence of “collusion” during the 2016 race for the White House.
BIAS ALERT: Mueller's No. 2 SECRETLY SLAMMED Trump's Travel Ban
A senior-level prosecutor now serving as a Deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-Trump investigation found himself in hot-water on Tuesday, following reports he praised acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she publicly defied President Trump’s travel ban last January, reports Fox News.
The correspondence, obtained by government watch-dog agency Judicial Watch, shows that Andrew Weissmann emailed Yates in late January with the subject line, “I am so proud.”
“And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” the email continued.
Sally Yates was publicly fired by President Trump after she refused to enforce his executive order regarding immigration and refugees from specific countries around the world.
The news follows another revelation that a senior investigator inside the special counsel’s office was demoted earlier this year for his “anti-Trump bias;” being relocated to the Human Resources Department at the FBI after his “unprofessional” text exchanges were reviewed by Mueller’s team.
“Andrew Weisman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans?” he asked.
