How to Watch Mueller’s Televised Testimony to Congress Live—Even Without Cable
Robert Mueller has been a particularly quiet man for the past two years. Aside from a nine-and-a-half minute statement in May, he has refused to discuss the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and allegations that President Donald Trump obstructed justice. That changes Wednesday.
Mueller is scheduled to testify before two Congressional committees Wednesday and, while he has made it clear he will only discuss the contents of his investigation, it's still must-see TV.
Given the seriousness of the topic and the broad public interest, the audience for the testimony extends far beyond political junkies (though Trump says he won't be watching, unless he does). And even if you don't have cable or access to a television, you'll still be able to watch easily.

What can I expect from the Robert Mueller testimony?
Mueller likely won't veer too far from his report or offer a lot of details that aren't already included in that. Democrats will likely spend their time highlighting the most troubling parts of the report, while Republicans are expected to focus on Mueller's decision not to charge Trump with conspiracy and anti-Trump biases in federal law enforcement departments, such as the FBI.
