"Sources said Friday morning the hearings will be pushed back to July 24".

Former special counsel Robert Mueller's highly anticipated testimony on Capitol Hill next week may be delayed by a week amid negotiations on the length of his hearings before two House panels, according to multiple reports. Under the current agreement, Mueller would appear for two hours each before the Judiciary and Intelligence Committees.

The House Judiciary and Intelligence committees are considering delaying the July 17 hearing as they negotiate with Mueller's representatives and the Justice Department over the hearing's format, according to two people familiar with the talks.

Neither Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., nor intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., had addressed the timing directly as of Friday morning.

Mueller's offer to delay comes as House Democrats on the Judiciary panel pressed their leaders for more time to question Mueller.

The uncertainty presented a distraction for Democrats, who have billed Mueller's testimony as a potential watershed moment that could focus attention on segments of his 448-page report that raise troubling questions about Republican President Donald Trump's efforts to impede the federal investigation. "Obviously, we want to make sure that there's a full hearing". The committees appeared on track to restrict the amount of time that members could speak or which members in attendance might be able to question Mueller. Politico said some junior members of the 41-member Judiciary Committee would have been shut out.

Under a new plan, sources said the House Judiciary panel would get an additional hour for questions.

Trump has claimed Mueller's report exonerated the president of collusion and obstruction.
