US special counsel Robert Mueller will testify in an open session before the House of Representatives Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17, the panels’ Democratic chairmen have confirmed.

Mr Mueller issued a report in April on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the judiciary panel, and Adam Schiff, head of the intelligence panel, said in a joint statement that Mueller had agreed to testify after the two committees issued subpoenas on Tuesday.

More to come.
