Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's testimony before Congress might be delayed until July 24, a week later than originally scheduled, to accommodate questioning from more members, multiple media outlets reported Friday.

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

Lawmakers started to contemplate a delay when Judiciary Committee members noticed that lots of the panel's much less senior lawmakers wouldn't get time to ask questions.

Mueller, who investigated Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election, has agreed to appear for "an extended period of time", House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said. Because the Intelligence Committee is smaller, its hearing was always expected to include time for each member.

President Trump told reporters Friday that House Democrats are trying to hurt him politically with Mr. Mueller's testimony because they're afraid the Democratic presidential candidates are too weak to beat him on the merits in 2020.

The news was welcomed by members of both parties.

Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., complained on Wednesday that the panel had been divided into "haves and have-nots". But Democrats want to know more about how he made that decision and when.

However, lawmakers are banking on public testimony to reveal the contents of the report to Americans who have not read it.

And, for now at least, Democrats have agreed to proceed without immediate access to Mr. Mueller's top deputies that had previously been incorporated into his appearance on Capitol Hill.

Mueller's only public comments on the investigation came in May, when he did not clear Trump of wrongdoing and reaffirmed his reluctance to testify in front of Congress.

Special counsel Robert Mueller spoke at the Department of Justice on May 29 about the Russian Federation investigation.

Under the deal, Mueller will testify for three hours starting at 8:30 a.m. on July 24 about his probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and potential obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump. Others are closely re-reading Mueller's 448-page report. Several predicted a delay, but some said a final agreement was not yet in hand.

There have been rumors of frustration from some Democrats over the limited questioning time and the fact that some members would not be able to ask questions.
