Rep. Doug Collins: AG Barr 'Is Not Afraid' of Testifying Before Congress

Mueller Agrees To ‘Tentative’ Date To Testify Before House Judiciary, Democrat Says

Robert Mueller and the House Judiciary Committee have "tentatively agreed" on a date for the special counsel to testify about the Russian Federation investigation, according to Democrat David N. Cicilline.

"If you seek both transparency and for the American public to learn the full contours of the special council's investigation, public testimony from special council Mueller himself is undoubtedly the best way to accomplish this goal". Add Russia Investigation as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Russia Investigation news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

The Democrat from Rhode Island released a tweet on Sunday afternoon walking back comments he made earlier on "Fox News Sunday" that a "tentative date" of May 15 had been selected. That's the date the Committee has proposed, and we hope the Special Counsel will agree to it.

The Democratic-led House of Representatives Judiciary Committee appears closest to arranging for Mueller to testify, possibly as soon as May 15. While Mueller punted on making a call on obstruction, his final report clearly states that Trump was NOT exonerated on obstruction of justice charges.

While the special counsel completed his report in March and urgered Barr to release introductions and executive summaries of the document's volumes quickly, the attorney general did not do so.

"The White House has so far indicated they would not interfere with Mr. Mueller's attempt to testify; we hope that won't change".

The attorney general dismissed the letter as "a little bit snitty". "The American people deserve the truth", he said on Twitter.

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




Trump's Sunday tweets also place him in opposition to some House Republicans who have expressed their support in bringing Mueller to testify.

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

More conflicts erupted last week during Barr's Senate testimony.

"Barr's testimony alone - created to protect Trump - isn't going to cut it", Schiff said in a tweet.

Mueller reported that Trump in mid-2017 ordered McGahn to have Mueller removed.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., responded to Trump with his own tweet. Now he's trying to silence Mueller.

"Today, Trump announced he is opposed to Mueller testifying before Congress".
