Robert Mueller, US Special Counsel appointed to conduct investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections and obstruction of justice by president Donald Trump, will not testify before Congress the following week, said Jerrold Nadler, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler added that he doesn’t want to subpoena Mueller, yet he will if that’s necessary.
“We’re talking to the Department of Justice. We’re talking to Mueller. Hopefully he will come in. It won’t be next week,” said Nadler. “He will come at some point. If necessary, we will subpoena him and he will come.”
Earlier president Trump said that it’s “up to the attorney general” whether to let Mueller testify, even though Trump himself posted on Twitter that special counsel “should not testify.” William Barr, Attorney General, does not object to Mueller’s questioning.
