Maddow details breaking news of deputy special counsel Zebly being sworn-in to testify along with Mueller



MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow reported on breaking news while previewing Wednesday’s highly-anticipated televised testimony of former special counsel Robert Mueller.

Maddow reported that Aaron Zebley will be sworn in to testify before the House Intelligence Committee.

Zebley was Mueller’s chief-of-staff when Mueller was the director of the FBI. It was assumed that he had held a similar role during the special counsel’s investigation, but Mueller’s spokesperson is now describing him as “the deputy special counsel” who “had day-to-day oversight of the investigations conducted by the special counsel’s office.”


As Maddow reported, Zebley will be sworn-in and able to answer questions during Wednesday afternoon’s hearing before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which is chaired by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

That will be Mueller’s second hearing of the day. In the morning, he will also be testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, which is chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

It is unknown whether Zebley will be sworn-in for the Judiciary hearing.

Among those opposed was Attorney General William P. Barr, who called the prosecution 'righteous' in an interview Wednesday with ABC News, the official said, adding that those pushing Trump to show loyalty to Stone included Rep.
