Trump says Mueller should not testify


President Trump has reversed course, now insisting special counsel Robert Mueller should *not* testify before Congress. On Friday, the President said that he’d leave Mueller’s testimony up to his attorney general William Barr…who was asked about it last week by the senate judiciary committee.

But yesterday, the president rejected that stance, tweeting, “Bob mueller should not testify. no redos for the Dems!”

Earlier in the day, both Democrats and Republicans took to the Sunday morning political shows, saying they are eager to hear from the author of the 448 page investigation. 

On Fox News Sunday, House Judiciary member, Democrat David Cicilline said that a tentative date of May 15th has been set for Mueller to testify.

Cicilline later clarified on twitter that “nothing has been agreed to yet” and that a date had only been proposed, but not yet accepted.

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler has, meantime, given Attorney General Barr until today to deliver an un-redacted version of the report. Nadler says if the full report is not delivered, he’ll move forward with an effort to hold Barr in contempt of Congress.
