FILE - This May 29, 2019 file photo shows special counsel Robert Mueller speaking about the Russia investigation at the Department of Justice in Washington. MSNBC contributor Joyce Vance, a former federal prosecutor, apologized and deleted a tweet that appeared to confuse readers about Fox News Channel’s plans to cover Mueller’s testimony before Congress this week.

Vance tweeted that while she meant it ironically, “my apologies to anyone I confused.” (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
