Nadler On Mueller Testifying: ‘I Do Anticipate That He Will Come’

May 8, 2019 8:27 a.m.

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Wednesday morning that he has been in conversation with special counsel Robert Mueller and that he does “anticipate that he will come” to Congress to testify.

“I think the President will try to stop Robert Mueller, whether he will succeed is another question,” he continued to CNN’s Alisyn Camerota. “I don’t think there is any legal way that the President could stop him.”

He added that Mueller is still a Department of Justice employee, and will continue to be for “a matter of weeks.”

Nadler is currently battling the administration on multiple fronts, as his committee is slated to vote Wednesday on whether or not to charge Attorney General William Barr with contempt for refusing to turn over an unredacted copy of the Mueller report to Congress.
