The Justice Department is trying to prevent two former members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team from testifying behind closed doors in Congress next week, when Mueller will testify before lawmakers, according to people familiar with the matter.
The department is opposing testimony by Aaron Zebley and James Quarles before the Democratic-led Judiciary and Intelligence committees in the House of Representatives, two sources said.
The men were expected to testify on July 17, the same day that Mueller is due as a witness before the two panels.
