Trump says Robert Mueller shouldn't testify before Congress

"No re-dos for the Dems!"
The Democratic-led House of Representatives Judiciary Committee appears closest to arranging for Mueller to testify, possibly as soon as May 15. The president has vowed to "fight all the subpoenas" from Democrats, sued to block compliance by accounting firms and banks, and instructed aides to ignore the repeated requests from Congress. "The Democrats are trying to win 2020". Mueller received fawning press for two years on the expectation that he would slay Trump.
Barr's characterization of the Mueller letter criticizing his summary of the special counsel's conclusions as "snitty" (meaning disagreeable, ill-tempered) was indeed curious ["Barr denies accusations of deception", front page, May 2].
He also said that if Barr doesn't comply with the committee's demands for Mueller's report and underlying documents by the Monday 9 a.m. EDT deadline, he thinks Nadler "will ask the committee to move forward with a contempt citation". "That's up to our attorney general". He reiterated that position in testimony last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Not only because Harris asked questions with unflinching precision but because she left Barr with no choice but to obfuscate about whether or not President Donald Trump or other White House officials "asked or suggested" Barr open an investigation into anyone. This sent him reeling, and it brought to full boil the anger of Mueller staffers, who wanted to charge Trump with obstruction based on the creative (i.e., wayward) theory they had been pursuing - namely, that a president can be indicted for obstruction based on the exercise of his constitutional prerogatives if prosecutors (including prosecutors who are active supporters of the president's political opposition) decide he had corrupt intent.
Barr had objected to Democrats' plans to use outside attorneys to conduct part of the questioning; Democrats say this has been done before, notably in the Watergate hearings.
An appearance by Mueller, 74, whose public utterances during the two-year investigation consisted of court filings, would promise to be a dramatic day in the nation's capital, with Democrats pushing him to expand on his inability to exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice and his differences with Attorney General William Barr over the presentation of his findings.
The Justice Department said last week that it was "unable" to provide the investigative files Mueller compiled during his investigation, due to a "compelling need to protect the autonomy and effectiveness of its investigations".
Trump also incorrectly tweeted on Sunday that the report showed "no obstruction". "We must hear from Director Mueller". According to CNN, Harris said in the letter that, "Such inappropriate requests by the President have been well documented".
