Mueller succumbs to subpoena, will testify publicly within weeks

The democrats have hooked their biggest fish to date, but the move comes with major risks.

The democrats are certainly roiling in their “resistance” today.

After months of excruciating attempts to bring the Mueller report’s hidden meanings into the open, congressional democrats have finally landed the big fish himself, Robert Mueller, as the Special Counsel has agreed to testify publicly on July 17.

Former special counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify in public about his two-year Russia investigation at a hearing before the House Intelligence Committee and Judiciary Committee on July 17. The announcement came from the chairmen of the two panels, who issued a subpoena compelling his testimony.

In a news release issued late Tuesday, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said that Mueller had agreed to testify next month.

“Pursuant to subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence tonight, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III has agreed to testify before both Committees on July 17 in open session,” they said in a statement.

Of course, the reluctant Mueller has already explained that any testimony from him will be free of conjecture or opinion, and he will refer to his written work to answer any and all questions.

The President responded early on Twitter with an oft-used refrain fo “Presidential harassment!”.

Democrats are hoping that Mueller’s in-person testimony will accomplish something, anything, toward their goal of delegitimizing President Trump, but it is quite the gamble.  Should Mueller’s testimony fail to move the needle on impeachment, the democrats will be forced to explain their reticence to move on during their 2020 campaigns.
