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

Mueller is tentatively set to testify before Congress on May 15

Trump responded to comments by House Judiciary Committee member, Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., that Mueller was tentatively scheduled to testify on May 15 about his report on potential collusion with Russian Federation and obstruction of justice by the president and his campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

Barr said the report exonerated Trump or collusion and obstruction, although Mueller said his prosecutors couldn't find evidence of a criminal conspiracy and didn't exonerate Trump on obstruction.

Donald Trump's statement represented a reversal; he had said two days earlier that he would leave the matter up to Attorney General William Barr, who had raised no objection to Mr Mueller testifying.

"A tentative date has been set for May 15 and we hope the Special Counsel will appear", Cicilline, said during his interview.

In a Twitter rant, Trump accused Democrats of "looking for a redo because they hated seeing the strong NO COLLUSION conclusion". "We think the American people have a right to hear directly from him".

Democrats have ramped up calls for Mueller to testify to Congress in the wake of Attorney General William Barr's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 1 about his interactions with the special counsel's office regarding the release of the Russian Federation report.

The calls for Mueller to testify grew following Barr's testimony last Wednesday before the Senate.

It's possible that Barr could block Mueller from appearing, since the special counsel is still a Justice Department employee.

Graham (R-SC) said he sent a letter to Mueller offering him the chance to testify if he thought Barr misrepresented his report.

Barr testified Wednesday that Mueller didn't challenge the accuracy of his memo summarizing the principal conclusions of the special counsel's report, including when they spoke on the phone.
