The Democratic-led U.S. House Judiciary Committee is considering a one-week delay in former U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's congressional testimony to allow more time for lawmakers to ask questions, according to two sources knowledgeable about the matter.

The plan would delay Mueller's appearance to July 24 from next Wednesday to add an hour of proceedings, in a bid to accommodate lawmakers who would not otherwise be able to ask questions of the former special counsel, the sources said.
