Trump says Mueller shouldn't testify: 'No redos for the Dems!'

Democrats are seeking more information about Mueller's report on his Russian Federation investigation. "We hope that won't change".

Cicilline said a Mueller representative has agreed to the appearance, "but obviously until the date comes, we never have an absolute guarantee".

Tensions mount as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi accuses Attorney General William Barr of lying to Congress; reaction from Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline, Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee.

Spokespeople for the Justice Department and Mueller declined comment. Instead, they found ample evidence of Russian interference into the 2016 general election and numerous instances in which the Trump campaign was eager and active in contacts with Russians.

Just a couple of days ago, on Friday, Trump told reporters at the White House that Barr should be the one to decide whether Mueller will testify before Congress.

And a letter that Mueller wrote to Barr objecting to his summary of the report was released. "Before the American people", Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said on Twitter.

Jerry Nadler (D-NY) told media last week that his office had been communicating with Mueller's office, and that he and others on the committee were "eyeing" May 15th as a tentative date for Mueller's testimony, but nothing had been set in stone. Mueller reportedly expressed concern to Barr regarding the AGs potentially misleading letter. Although Democrats have initiated more than 60 individual investigations into the Trump White House, the Trump campaign, and Trump businesses, their primary focus appears to be on the President's campaign team.

Cicilline said there has not been "compliance yet" from the attorney general. Barr made that assertion despite a letter he received in March from Mueller complaining Barr's summary didn't fully capture the "context, nature and substance" of his almost 400-page report. "Given the fact that Barr does not seem to be a neutral observer here, Mueller's testimony is all the more important", he added.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., responded to Trump with his own tweet.

"Barr's testimony alone - created to protect Trump - isn't going to cut it". Then he refused to be interviewed by Mueller.

"Today, Trump announced he is opposed to Mueller testifying before Congress".
