Plans to bring a prepared statement tomorrow and that is expected to testify for at least five hours. After months of anticipation the former special counsel will testify before the house judiciary and Intelligence Committees. First president promptly and Sistine he wouldn't watch. Then. Now I'm not here to be watching probably maybe you'll see a little bit of it I'm not going to be while watching Mueller. Because. You can't take. All those bites out of the apple. Robert Mueller is a reluctant witness appearing under subpoena he had hoped his report would speak for itself in a report is my testimony. I would not provide information beyond that which is already public. In any appearance before congress. Bullish report did not clear president trump of obstruction but attorney general William Barr did. Democrats planned to push smaller on why he didn't clear the president. If we had had called confidence. That the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so. This Maureen a newly released letter by the Justice Department is advising Moeller not to go beyond the redacted report. President trump telling reporters this week the Democrats are wasting their time we had dead no collusion. No obstruction if we had no nothing. And the president Ari tweeting this Maureen saying he completely credible report and it's wasted everyone's time and taxpayer dollars. ABC will have live coverage other testimony starting.

My outfit actually matches there any doubt looks degree meg and now including Megan have risen and we appreciate and regular while we have you here what do Democrats expect to hear from Muller if he's not really anything outside of the report. No one democratic congressman from Rhode Island says. He doesn't expect the testimony to reveal any new. 2016 election. But rather Muller's testimony will present the report's conclusions of president trumps. Potential misconduct to a public audience mega do you is that I had asked you the more serious question before asking about your outfit learned I just pentagon at the flown here panic and I would with think we're time about Lawler but then we got back to my shoes and that's what we do you and sunamerica Roland let bitten and I exactly gotten meg and thanks for joining us this morning. Thanks and the top administration is expanding its powers to Fastrack deportation starting today immigration officers will have expanded authority to. Deport migrants in the country illegally for a less than two years. Without allowing them to appear before judge previously be expedited removal process was largely limited. To people arrested almost immediately after crossing the Mexican border.

Charges congressional leaders have agreed to a two year bipartisan budget deal that would raise spending by 320 billion dollars to suspend the debt ceiling. That deal would allow the government to keep borrowing to pay its bills the on the 20/20 elections and a berth the first ever the fault I'm US payments. President trump is calling it a real compromise ABC's Brett milky has the details. It has yet they're this question looming over congress with public drama around Robert Moeller skewering tomorrow. When Democrats and Republicans be able to reach a crucial spending. And this does not iron out which programs get what but it does get congress to limit the budget caps it needs to work within. And after a huge tax cut plan people are asked whether this was the time president trump could start enacting cuts. I spoke to ABC's Ben Siegel who covers congress and legally both sides have agreed to spend more money not less this. Agreement governs all the money the government spends that's money on foreign aid money on infrastructure money on social welfare programs. How much money was the subject of these negotiations and the outcome of course. Reflects money that goes into programs that impact people's lives and in a variety of ways and brother is something else hanging over all of us remember that deal between President Obama and congress in 2011 the budget control act. Really a focused on was reining in federal spending this was the sequester thing right we had to rein in spending or we're just gonna start painful cuts on everything. That's exactly right so the added incentive here for president trump and for congress was to make sure they did not trigger those automatic spending cuts under the terms of that agreement by President Obama nobody wanted that to happen. And at a crucial thing this does you guys it likely averts a potential government shutdown in the next year that is good news to anyone in Washington who say Mikey looking to win an election next year a lot more on the budget extravaganza on stark here later this morning.

The key to be more productive at work appears to be. Ignore your co workers and a half experts say the people you work with may be reigning human toll. Apparently every time they talk to you it takes 25 minutes streaking your focus. What experts suggest employees Wear headphones to send a message.

Nobody had been corner coming up behind the thing that the better or roar campaign near the presidential hopeful had to say about immigration on the trip to Alice silence. And that's. Welcome back now to the race between forty and one of the issues figures understate. Immigration federal work took a trip to Alice island a gateway to America for so many immigrants. An ABC news was one of just two outlets to be able to tag along our campaign reporters bring out Stuart and thought ship has like that behind the scenes moments. Caylee Anthony Kennedy during his first visit to Alice island better or work. We talked about the similarities he filed with the historic Ellis Island. And immigration. US border today he cannot hard on Donald Trump yesterday take a look at what he cactus they. Flat out calling the president a rethink. Do you think president. It. Yes present as a racist. What we saw in North Carolina last week was almost an impromptu Nuremburg rally. Inciting hatred. And and ultimately I think implicit in that is violence against people based on the color of their skin. Based on the religion based on their difference from the majority. Of Americans and it is in keeping with the president. Who describes Mexican immigrants as rapists criminals who describes asylum seekers as animals or an infestation he says a Klansman. Or are very fine people. It's very clear in the past that he is taking us on. Yup Rihanna that we saw him really hit hard against the president that which is something that we've seen him do before but that definitely no holds bar at the time. Yeah yeah amendment you didn't see yesterday. Bechtel taking that tore. In the museum at a Alice island really coming with a wealth. Of knowledge a very different after that we Tharp from the first democratic debate yeah I know we remember rug it was kind of a scuffle between him at his fellow 20/20 year from Texas cast of young pastor. Who hit hard seeing. That's so you have not done your homework on immigration you need to get to work here I'm so we saw a very interesting side but to asking a lot of questions of the historians that were with us. Wanting to read every plaque go to every single exhibit and learn as much as he could end. Taking his own experience. About immigration. And being from a borderline city. On the front lines of it's really taking that to inform the empathy and the knowledge that he was learning at Ellis Island and take a look at this fight. With the back to and listen to what he had this thing. He says essentially it is our hope. What do you dancing like. Homeowners Rupert or come here. One. And not as good news it's the best thing for us. You know stocks on our boat ride back once we landed I spoke to Bechtel about that Obama debates seats when Castro criticize him about not. Advocating for a deacon eyes borders and here's YE Heath that he's against it. If we worry to ensure that Hillary lawful orderly path toward you become your joints and or to work a job more to seek asylum and run without being criminally prosecuted. Then why would you fight in. Without inspection. In between our ports of entry now under my administration if you do that that you're Seeking Asylum seeking refuge. We're here with the family we will not and we. Prosecutor. But if we encountered you despite the fact we changed our laws giving you an orderly safe house. To come here trying to defraud United States of America we're gonna hold you accountable for doing that there will be just so. And make sure that we maintain integrity. Of our borders while re writing or immigration laws we. Sure that people who wants its safe legal path to come here.
