Donald Trump freakout in 3..2..1

A key member of the House Judiciary Committee said Sunday that the panel and a representative for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III have tentatively agreed on May 15 as the date for Mueller to testify.

The committee has been seeking to hear from Mueller amid disagreements about whether Attorney General William P. Barr mischaracterized the special counsel’s report in his congressional testimony and statements.

“A tentative date has been set of May 15, and we hope the special counsel will appear,” Rep. David N. Cicilline (D-R.I.) said on “Fox News Sunday.” “We think the American people have a right to hear directly from him.”

Asked whether Mueller himself has agreed, Cicilline responded, “The representative for the special counsel has, but, obviously, until the date comes, we never have an absolute guarantee.”

A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment.

You can bet your ass that the Trump Administration will do everything in their power to sabotage this appearance, despite what they might say in public. 

Unless your Donald Trump, of course, he is already speaking out against it.

I also think that Nancy Pelosi might want to keep her powder dry until we hear from Mueller. 

It is quite possible that after his testimony there will be no way for Democrats to avoid moving forward with impeachment proceedings. 

Update: Courtesy of USA Today:

House Judiciary Committee member Rep. David Cicilline on Sunday walked back a claim that special counsel Robert Mueller had agreed via a representative to testify on May 15 about his report on the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 election.

“Just to clarify: we are aiming to bring Mueller in on the 15th, but nothing has been agreed to yet. That’s the date the Committee has proposed, and we hope the Special Counsel will agree to it. Sorry for the confusion,” the Rhode Island Democrat said in a tweet.

Well, this is disappointing.

    I hope trump is required to pay back the money he wasted and stole from the American Taxpayer after his conviction and seize of property. 35 million of manfarts was spent wisely to take down trump.

    “The president doesn’t want a reality show that’s out of his control to go unscripted on national television involving the characters that have been perusing him for so long,”

    Sargent added, “If so, Trump’s tweets urging Mueller not to testify appear more feckless and panicky than anything else.”
    “Mueller may well publicly speak to the ways his report detailed how the Trump campaign ‘expected it would benefit electorally’ from that Russian help, and the campaign’s efforts to — yup — collude with it. If Mueller is asked why he declined to exonerate Trump on obstruction, he might somehow let it be known that he did, in fact, establish extensive evidence of criminality.”
