House Democrats Have Mueller Scheduled To Testify May 15
May 6, 2019 (EIRNS)—The House Judiciary Committee has scheduled legal assassin Robert Mueller to be questioned about Russian interference in the 2016 election on May 15. “Beating a dead horse” looks sane by comparison.
Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) told “Fox News Sunday” that he did not know if Mueller would appear. The Fox network also reported that President Donald Trump deferred to his Attorney General William Barr, when asked about it May 3, saying, “I don’t know. That’s up to the Attorney General, who I think has done a fantastic job!”
On May 5 President Trump questioned why Mueller should appear in a tweeting, concluding “Bob Mueller should not testify. No redos for the Dems!” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) gave Attorney General William Barr a deadline of May 6 to comply with a subpoena demanding an unredacted version of Mueller’s report, or face a contempt charge, Fox News reported.
Nadler set a May 8 vote in the committee to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for defying the Congressional panel’s subpoena for an unredacted version of Mueller’s Russia report—that is, for following the law, which required Barr to redact grand jury testimony and certain classified information.
