“This is a win for the American public,” said Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA). “The people will hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller directly and for a longer period of time.”
In recent days, more and more lawmakers on the Judiciary Committee had publicly complained about the time constraints.
"I don't get a chance to question him?" said Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) on Thursday. "This is just plain wrong."
"I'm not going to get to ask my question," added Rep. Ben Cline (R-VA). "My constituents deserve to be represented at this hearing."
Now the change should allow every member in both parties a chance to ask something of Mueller.
Mueller has said he won't give any answers that go outside what he wrote in his over 400 page report.
Most lawmakers in Congress have not read the report in its entirety.
