House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said decisively Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller “is going to testify,” something House Democrats have been pushing hard in recent days.

“The American people have a right to hear what the man who did the investigation has to say, and we now know we certainly can’t rely on the attorney general who misrepresented his conclusions,” Schiff said on ABC’s “This Week.” “So he is going to testify.”

President Donald Trump doesn’t want Mueller to speak publicly, tweeting that he “should not testify. No redos for Dems!”

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler said Friday that Mueller would not testify this week, as the committee initially planned, but that the two parties are in talks.

“He will come at some point. If it’s necessary, we will subpoena him and he will come,” Nadler told the Hill.
