US House Democrats is set to interrogate Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s 2016 campaign manager, on September 17, the Daily Beast reported Sunday.
Lewandowski will appear before the House Judiciary Committee to testify about US President Trump’s actions outlined in former Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Mueller did not charge President Trump with obstruction of justice, yet listed a number of situations where he may have done that. When asked whether Trump may be charged with obstruction of justice once he leaves office, Mueller responded positively.
House Judiciary Committee Jerrold Nadler subpoenaed Lewandowski last month. The hearing is expected to be public and Lewandowski does not object to it, which makes him the first Trump associate to testify in an open hearing.
The Democrats are hoping that Lewandowski’s testimony will bring in new information which could help them in their investigation into Trump’s presidency.
Rob Porter, former White House staff secretary, and Rick Dearborn, deputy White House Chief of Staff, have also been subpoenaed by the same committee and are supposed to appear on the same day. However, neither of them has confirmed his appearance.
