Confirming that we are going to keep hearing Robert Mueller's name for weeks and months to come, the House Judiciary Committee announced on Monday that they will begin hearings on the Robert Mueller report (more of them, that is) on June 10. 

One of their first witnesses was a key figure in the Watergate scandal.

Republicans, exhausted with the whole process, are accusing Democrats of engaging in more desperate political games.

Special counsel Robert Mueller concluded in his two-year-long investigation that President Trump did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 election. However, a few of the special counsel's vague remarks in last week's statement have given Democrats renewed hope that the president may have at least obstructed justice. Since DOJ rules prevent Mueller from pursuing those charges against a sitting president, Congress was more than willing to take the baton.
