Trump slams Mueller ahead of testimony

Special Counsel Robert Mueller said this week he would comply with a subpoena and testify before Congress next month about his investigation into President Trump.

Former special counsel Robert Mueller's agreement to testify before Congress, as many Democrats have urged, will "blow up in their face", Sen.

Mueller concluded his 22-month investigation in March by submitting a report to Attorney General William Barr.

In the report issued in April, Mr Mueller concluded there was not enough evidence to establish a conspiracy between Mr Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation, which was the original question that started the investigation. "In addition to making sure whoever does the questioning, in however, whatever manner we do it, we get to the most important points".

Nadler and Schiff expressed in their letter to Mueller they understood his hesitations of speaking publicly about his criminal investigation. "But the problem for Democrats is that Mueller will not provide any new information", he wrote.

If Nadler and Schiff think there is a hidden storyline inside the investigative work of the Office of the Special Counsel that will show that the Trump campaign actually colluded with the Russians, they are bound to be disappointed.

Those remarks did little to settle the demands for his testimony, with Democrats and Republicans likely to confront him on his team's conclusions, his reaction to a drumbeat of incessant criticism from the president and his personal opinion about whether Trump would have been charged were he not the commander-in-chief.

The Mueller report, released in April, found no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, but it identified at least 10 instances of possible obstruction of the investigation into the campaign on the part of Trump or his associates.

Trump says the report was a complete exoneration from what he called a witch hunt mounted by Democrats frustrated by his 2016 election victory.

Tapper noted that one-third of the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives is on record saying they want impeachment proceedings.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday, without offering evidence, that Special Counsel Robert Mueller "terminated" Federal Bureau of Investigation communications in what he called an illegal move. After all, his May 29 statement was crafted to be bland and factual, but hearing it from the laconic Mueller had an electrifying effect. In the second volume, Mueller documented almost a dozen episodes of possible obstruction of justice.

Sekulow predicted in a Fox News op-ed Wednesday that Democrats' "partisan move" to subpoena Mueller will "backfire on them - significantly".

Mr. Nadler, meanwhile, told CNN he won't allow the White House and Justice Department to restrict Mr. Mueller's testimony.
