CAPITOL HILL – That was House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) speaking of his hopes for the back-to-back testimony of former Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III before the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees today, starting at 8:30 a.m. EDT.

Just yesterday, Mueller requested that his former deputy special counsel, Aaron Zebley, accompany him to the hearings. For the morning Judiciary hearing, Mueller is expected to be the only person testifying while Zebley will sit at the table next to him.

However, for the afternoon Intelligence hearing, both Mueller and Zebley will be sworn in and testify.

Mueller’s last-minute request to have Zebley brought in has angered Republicans. Republican Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Jim Jordon of Ohio, tweeted:
