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

A Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee says he's hopeful special counsel Robert Mueller will appear before the committee, noting that May 15 has been proposed.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, offered Mueller a chance Thursday to testify before that panel if he feels the need to correct any statements made by Barr.

Rhode Island Representative David Cicilline told Fox News Sunday that "we hope the special counsel will appear" at that time and that "we think the American people have a right to hear directly from him". "We must hear from Director Mueller". Trump said referring to Mueller's report.

Robert Mueller, the man who led the almost two-year investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election, has been asked to testify to Congress on May 15, a lawmaker said Sunday. Instead, according to Barr, Mueller expressed concerns about how the press was reporting on the letter.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment on Sunday. "But if the department persists in its baseless refusal to comply with a validly issued subpoena, the committee will move to contempt proceedings and seek further legal recourse".

Mueller objected in a letter to Barr three days later on March 27, complaining that the summary "did not fully capture the context, nature and substance of this office's work and conclusions".

Barr is headed for another showdown with Congress on Monday if he fails to meet a morning deadline to hand over the full, unredacted Mueller report requested by Democrats.

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.
