House probing if Trump lied to Mueller

The House of Representatives is now investigating whether President Donald Trump lied to Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of the Russia probe, CNN reported.

The House's general counsel suggested on Monday that the president may have been lying in his written testimony to Mueller related to key aspects of his investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Speaking at the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, House general counsel Douglas Letter stated: "Did the President lie? Was the President not truthful in his responses to the Mueller investigation?" as he argued lawmakers need access to Mueller's documents.

Earlier today, Trump said that he is "strongly considering" testifying as part of the ongoing House impeachment inquiry.
