House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) officially called on Mueller to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.
Nadler sent Mueller a letter calling him to testify before May 23:
It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings. We are now requesting Mueller to appear before @HouseJudiciary as soon as possible. pic.twitter.com/Mmo6PA4KPt

Democrats are moving quickly to shut down Trump’s Mueller report spin
It is clear that the American people need to hear from the special counsel, especially after William Barr confirmed at his press conference that he did not consult with Barr about the obstruction of justice evidence against Trump. Barr said during the press conference that he has no issue with Mueller testifying, so it appears that the special counsel will appear before Congress within the next month to give the American people the truth about the investigation from the source.
Democrats aren’t wasting time, and they aren’t about to let Trump get away with whitewashing the report.
Robert Mueller is coming to Congress.
