Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is in direct talks with the House Judiciary Committee about whether he will testify before Congress, according to multiple reports.
NBC News and ABC News reported that the committee is now speaking with Mueller’s team when it was previously dealing with the Justice Department. NBC reports that a hearing has not been finalized and a date was not set.
This is not the only case where Democrats are reaching out to Mueller directly, Amy Klobuchar has also requested Trump’s financial records from Mueller.
Courtesy of Hill Reporter:
Senator and 2020 presidential candidate, Amy Klobuchar, has just sent a letter to Special Counsel Robert Mueller requesting information related to Trump’s personal tax returns and Trump Organization financial details.
Clearly attempting to work with Bill Barr and his Justice Department is a waste of time at this point, so Democrats are simply going around the obstruction and attempting to get what they want from the source.
And based on the fact that we have recently learned that the Trump Administration has decided not to cooperate at all with Democrats, do they have any other choice?
