House Judiciary Chair Asks Robert Mueller To Publicly Testify Before House Judiciary Committee




House Judiciary chairman Jerrold Nadler has asked special counsel Robert Mueller to publicly testify on the Russia investigation before lawmakers.

Rep. Nadler’s (D-N.Y.) call for Mueller to testify before the committee comes after Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), the top Republican on the committee, urged Nadler earlier on Monday to have Mueller testify.

“Today, Ranking Member Collins called for Special Counsel Mueller to appear before @HouseJudiciary. I fully agree,” Nadler said in a tweet. “Special Counsel Mueller should come before the Committee to answer questions in public about his 22-month investigation into President Trump and his associates.”



“In order to ask Special Counsel Mueller the right questions, the Committee must receive the Special Counsel’s full report and hear from Attorney General Barr about that report on May 2. We look forward to hearing from Mr. Mueller at the appropriate time,” Nadler added.

But Collins said in a letter earlier Monday that Mueller should testify during the week of April 22, something he said would help with transparency.

“To that end, Special Counsel Mueller should be invited to testify before the Committee during the week of April 22. Although the House is expected to be in recess that week, I think we can agree this business is too important to wait, and Members of the Committee will surely return to Washington at such a critical moment in our country’s history,” he wrote.
