JUST IN: Chairman Nadler: "Did you actually totally exonerate the president?"
Mueller says it is true that President Trump refused to sit for an interview with Mueller and his team.
Rep. Lofgren: "Did your investigation find that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from one of the candidates winning?"
Lofgren: "And which candidate would that be?"
Mueller: "Well, it would be Trump."
A little more than an hour into his testimony, Mueller has deflected or declined to answer a question 29 times. https://nbcnews.to/2GrNwNI
Mueller says he discussed the FBI director job with President Trump before being appointed special counsel in 2017 — but “not as a candidate.” https://nbcnews.to/2Owx1GP
Mueller again says that it was not his understanding that he was interviewing with President Trump for the FBI director job; believed he was just giving his input on requirements of the role.
