Robert Mueller’s highly anticipated Congressional testimony appears to be postponed until later this month, according to three government sources familiar with the matter. But the situation appears to be fluid, and as of Friday morning, sources said the two sides were still in negotiations about how, when, and for how long Mueller will testify.  

Mueller agreed last month to appear before the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees about his report on July 17—a step he said he did not want to take. Reaching the date took weeks of negotiations, and the two sides agreed he would testify for two hours before each committee. But now, things appear to have changed. 

A Democratic aide now says that date date has now been moved until June 24. Politico was the first to report about the delay. Another source familiar with the negotiations said Democrats have offered for Mueller to appear on July 24, and to testify for an additional hour before House Judiciary.
