Nadler “Confident” Mueller Will Testify Before Judiciary Cmte “Soon”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said he is “confident” former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will testify before Congress “soon,” reports The Hill.
Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, Nadler said “Let’s just say that I’m confident he’ll come in soon.”
He also said his committee would subpoena Mueller “if we have to.”
Last week, Mueller said he would not testify before Congress, claiming his final Russia report was his testimony.
“Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report,” he said in a press conference. “It contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully and the work speaks for itself. And the report is my testimony.”
He continued, “I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress. In addition, access to our underlying work product is being decided in a process that does not involve our office. So beyond what I have said here today, and what is contained in our written work, I do not believe it is appropriate for me to speak further about the investigation or to comment on the actions of the Justice Department or Congress.”
