Eighty elephant she's been behind closed doors for about two hours now Democrats. I have been questioning her and welcome back the great question are we getting new information are they here in new information we've learned from and so far we've talked to some. A democratic lawmakers exiting the room with had a chance to question her they say that she's. Answering some questions those questions about the campaign but nothing as a relief. To her time at the White House now. You know that the White House last night sent a letter to the committee saying Ed that she was immune from testifying at Berkman barring any events are related to her. Time at the White House so. What lawmakers and democratic lawmakers are things so far is that White House counsel is whipped her and they are objecting. Two most of those questioned found Republicans will now have the opportunity to question her also we expect for her to be in there. Most of the afternoon outlook lawmakers that we spent two that's it she's not answering questions about her time at the White House he doesn't what's next and they brought up. The litigation that potentially this could go to the courts and in some of these lawmakers are saying that this is just the president obstructing justice complaint.

It you know it's up to them whether they take any action in the port. And it's worth asking since you're here do you think Muller is ever going to testify when we stand on that. They get a bigger question than Democrats also say that they're negotiating with his team they city still wanna hear from him there's really no Peru.
