Mueller Agrees To Testify On May 15, As Trump’s Nightmare Comes True

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is tentatively scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on May 15.

UPDATE: Rep. Cicilline clarified his statement that Mueller has agreed to testify:

Robert Mueller Has Agreed To Testify Before The House Judiciary Committee

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) broke the news on Fox News Sunday, “A tentative date has been set of May 15. We hope the special counsel will appear. We think that the American people have a right to hear directly from him.”

Cicilline was asked on Fox News Sunday by Chris Wallace if Mueller has agreed to testify. He answered, “The representative for the special counsel has, but obviously until the date comes, we never have an absolute guarantee. The White House has so far indicated that they won’t interfere with Mr. Mueller’s attempts to testify. We hope that won’t change.”

Mueller’s testimony is Trump’s worst nightmare

Democrats have already been urging Mueller to testify even if the White House tries to block him. One should expect that Trump will not step aside quietly and let Mueller testify. Whether the White House realizes it or not, Mueller’s testimony is likely to blow up their cover-up of his report. The American people will finally get the chance to cut through the spin of Trump and Barr by hearing from Mueller directly.

The situation is about to go from bad to worse for Donald Trump and his lackey attorney general.
