The truth is the truth is the truth. The Mueller Investigation continues to gain steam. Lots of indictments, multiple convictions and still lots of questions. At the same time, the House Intelligence Committee has continued its own investigation. Under the Republicans, it certainly had a much different approach. However, under the Democrats, it seems to be running in a different direction. It appears that the leadership on the Committee is seeking to cooperate with Mueller in terms of the statements made to both.  The Committee has said it wants to provide transcripts to Mueller for comparison.  

Essentially, it is a crime to lie to Congress and to the Mueller team, the FBI and the Department of Justice in general. However, there has been little cooperation between the House Intel Committee and Mueller, until now. From an investigatory perspective, this should get even more interesting. However, in the end, this process, on all sides, needs to be as apolitical as possible.  Hopefully, cooperation between both make that point clearer.  At the same time, I'm calling for as much transparency as possible.  This is not just of interest to Mueller, or Congress.  The American people should be the ultimate and most important consumer of this information.

I appear on Voice of America International Edition to discuss.
