Mueller Sets Tentative Date To Testify Before House

Adjust Comment Print

A Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee says he's hopeful special counsel Robert Mueller will appear before the panel, citing a "tentative date" for Mueller's testimony.

Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, was unable to establish that the Trump campaign conspired with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election. "No redos for the Dems!" he continued.

Representative Jerrold Nadler, the House Judiciary Committee chairman, has given Barr a Monday deadline to comply with a subpoena demanding an unredacted version of Mueller's report, along with its underlying evidence, or face a contempt charge.

Barr, whom Democrats accuse of shedding an attorney general's traditional independence to serve as a Trump defender, remains Mueller's boss in the Justice Department and presumably could block him from testifying.

Barr said he has no qualms with Mueller testifying before Congress.

The committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY, said last week the committee was "firming up the date" for Mueller's testimony and hoping it would be May 15.

Trump's Sunday tweet marks a shift from what he said Friday during an exchange with reporters in the Oval Office.

"After spending more than $35,000,000 over a two year period, interviewing 500 people, using 18 Trump Hating Angry Democrats & 49 FBI Agents - all culminating in a more than 400 page Report showing NO COLLUSION - why would the Democrats in Congress now need Robert Mueller to testify", Trump tweeted Sunday.

Mueller has said no one from the White House tried to get in his way, and the president did not assert executive privilege to stop the special counsel team from questining any of his aides. "That's up to the attorney general, who I think has done a fantastic job", he said.

Trump and House Democrats are locked in a battle over congressional oversight, with the president refusing to cooperate with multiple Capitol Hill investigations seeking witnesses, documents and his tax returns. He reiterated that position in testimony last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee. We ought to hear the full testimony from Mueller.

"Barr's testimony alone - created to protect Trump - isn't going to cut it", Schiff said in a tweet. Now, in his new tweet, he makes it clear that he actually doesn't want Mueller to testify. "They will testify. The American people deserve the truth", Schiff said.
