Trump Rages Against House Democrats: ‘Mueller Should Not Testify’

President Donald Trumpsaid on Sunday that he doesn't want special counsel Robert Mueller to testify in front of Congress about his sweeping Russian Federation probe.
Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., on Sunday derided Democratic threats to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt if he doesn't share more information on the Mueller report - and said Barr doesn't fear the partisan pressure. Add Russia Investigation as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Russia Investigation news, video, and analysis from ABC News. That's the date the Committee has proposed, and we hope the Special Counsel will agree to it.
Cicilline said a Mueller representative has agreed to the appearance, "but obviously until the date comes, we never have an absolute guarantee".
Democrats have been demanding to hear from Mr. Mueller since a letter surfaced last week suggesting the special counsel thought Mr. Barr had misrepresented his findings. While Mueller punted on making a call on obstruction, his final report clearly states that Trump was NOT exonerated on obstruction of justice charges.
Mueller sent Barr a letter on March 27 raising concerns about a four-page memo that Barr sent Congress summarizing the main conclusions of the special counsel's probe.
Just a couple of days ago, on Friday, Trump told reporters at the White House that Barr should be the one to decide whether Mueller will testify before Congress.
The Mueller report chronicled Russian efforts to help Trump win election in 2016 but found that Trump and his campaign did not engage in a criminal conspiracy with Moscow.
