Justice Department really doesn't want Mueller's deputies talking to Congress

Dan Desai Martin -July 10, 2019

Trump's Department of Justice continues their attempted cover-up, pushing two top Mueller aides to not testify before Congress.

The Justice Department told two of special counsel Robert Mueller's top deputies to refuse to testify before Congress, the New York Times reported on Tuesday.

The House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees were negotiating closed-door testimony from Aaron Zebley and James L. Quarles III, two of Mueller's top staffers who worked on the Mueller report. But last week, the Justice Department barged in and asked that the two men not appear before Congress, even though neither currently works at the department.

Because neither man is currently employed by the department, Trump's cronies cannot legally bar them from appearing before the committees. But the request "could have a chilling effect" and "give them cover to avoid testifying" if they don't want to, the Times said.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the deputies could shed more light on Mueller's investigation into both the Trump campaign's numerous contacts with Russian operatives as well as Trump's repeated attempts to obstruct justice.
