WASHINGTON (NBC News) – The House Judiciary Committee holds its first hearing Monday on special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian election meddling.

“We’re going to get to the truth and we’re going to demonstrate that this President must be accountable for his own conduct,” said Democratic Representative David Cicilline of Rhode Island.
