Trump Rails Against Potential Mueller Hearing: 'Bob Mueller Should Not Testify'

Donald Trump

A member of the House Judiciary Committee said on Sunday that a tentative deal has been reached for special counsel Robert Mueller to testify before the panel on May 15 about Russian influence during the 2016 election.

The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee appears closest to arranging for Mueller to testify, possibly as soon as May 15.

"That's the date the Committee has proposed, and we hope the Special Counsel will agree to it".

He also said that during a private phone call, Mr. Mueller told him he was upset about the press coverage of his findings, not Mr. Barr's summary.

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.

The attorney general dismissed the letter as "a little bit snitty".


House Democrats are eagerly seeking for Mueller to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, whose chairman, 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.

Cicilline said Sunday that the Trump administration has shown no sign that its pattern of transparency will end where Mueller's work begins. Mueller reportedly expressed concern to Barr regarding the AGs potentially misleading letter.

Barr could face another subpoena to appear before Nadler's committee after skipping a hearing Thursday in a dispute over the rules for questioning him.

Mueller's testimony will be the most hotly anticipated Capitol Hill must-see TV since last week's Senate hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr.

Robert Mueller, as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, testifies before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington March 12, 2013.

The feud with Barr has animated Democrats and temporarily shifted attention away from impeachment - and by extension, the party's divisions over whether to pursue it. There was no crime, except on the other side (incredibly not covered in the Report), and NO OBSTRUCTION.
