WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller took seven hours worth of questioning from a House Intel panel asking for more clarity on the report he issued on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Mueller said the threat was very real in 2016 and still remains.

When asked if his report exonerated President Trump of obstruction of justice, Mueller said no.

In the aftermath of the testimony, President Trump claimed vindication, despite the serious findings presented.

A Hindu priest, Swami Harish Chander Puri, was brutally beaten near his Queens temple, while going for a morning walk wearing his religious attire. Police arrested 52-year old Sergio Gouveia in connection to the attack. Puri has already forgiven his attacker and is back at the temple on duty. New York Attorney General Letitia James called for the NYPD to investigate this matter as a hate crime. And Governor Cuomo will have the State Police Hate Crimes Division assist the investigation.

And Former White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah is now a Senior Vice President of Fox Corporation.
