Former U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified on Wednesday to the U.S. House of Representatives about his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and any possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump.
Rather than answer some questioners, Mueller often referred them to his report on the investigation or declined to answer. At one point, he had to correct himself after saying he would have sought to indict Trump if not for a Justice Department policy against charging a sitting president, saying his investigation did not determine whether the president had committed a crime.
Below are highlights from Mueller's testimony to the first hearing before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, followed by later testimony to the House intelligence panel.
