Jerrold Nadler: Tensions Between Special Counsel Office and DOJ Raise Questions; Mueller Testimony Inevitable
House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said on Thursday that Robert Mueller will probably have to testify before him someday, given the special counsel’s reported disagreements with the Department of Justice.
“All these questions would be answered by releasing the report,” Nadler said to CNN’s Manu Raju. “I think it’s inevitable that Mueller is going to testify at some point, but the first thing we need is the release of the report and the documents.”
When Raju double-checked to see if Nadler thinks Mueller’s testimony is inevitable, the congressman answered with “at some point, yeah.”
Nadler is referring to the reports from New York Times and Washington Post saying Mueller’s colleagues are unsatisfied with Attorney General Bill Barr‘s abridged summary of their findings. Investigators reportedly say that Barr didn’t convey the full weight of what they’ve said about President Donald Trump, plus they expected him to use the summary information to describe their key findings with minimal redactions.
