Since so few Americans have read the Mueller report, Robert Mueller would be doing a service to his country if he showed up to testify and did nothing else but read his report as the answers to questions from members of Congress. Mueller’s testimony will attract the attention of every network. It will be a must watch event, and it will shed light, and educate the American people on the special counsel’s findings.
The country needs Mueller to testify, and Chairman Nadler isn’t going to allow Mueller to ride off into the sunset without speaking before Congress. Mueller has expressed a desire not to testify in public, but if he is subpoenaed, the choice would not be his.
Mueller is going to testify, and it may happen very soon.
