FILE -- Robert Mueller, the former special counsel, testifies before the House Intelligence Committee in Washington, July 24, 2019. Impeachment investigators are exploring whether President Donald Trump lied in his written answers to Mueller during the Russia investigation, a lawyer for the House told a federal appeals court on Nov. 18, raising the prospect of bringing an additional basis for a Senate trial over whether to remove Trump.

WASHINGTON - The House of Representatives' top lawyer told a federal appeals court Monday that the House is investigating whether President Donald Trump lied to special counsel Robert Mueller, and the attorney urged the judges to order the release of still-secret material from Mueller's investigation.

Two of the three judges who heard arguments at the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit - Judith Rogers, a Clinton appointee, and Thomas Griffith, an appointee of George W. Bush - seemed prepared to order at least some of the material sought by the House to be turned over.
