Report: Mueller Reluctant to Publicly Testify, Fears Being Viewed as “Political”
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly reluctant to publicly testify in front of Congress about his Russia report for fear of looking too political, according to the Daily Caller:
CNN reports that Mueller is reluctant to testify publicly about the Russia investigation for fear of being seen as too political. The Washington Post is reporting that Mueller and Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have been unable to agree how much of the testimony would be done in public.
The Post reports that Mueller wants to privately testify about matters not addressed in his report, while Democrats hope to get him to say that President Trump would have been charged with obstruction of justice if he were not Commander in Chief. Democrats also wish to have Mueller discuss the release of the report and his interactions with Attorney General William Barr.
