That seems like a reasonable question.

Donald Trump says he’s innocent in the Russia investigation—so innocent, in fact, that he is vehemently opposed to having Robert Mueller testify about his findings on Capitol Hill. Whining that two years of his presidency have been “stollen” by the special counsel, the president on Sunday reversed course on his suggestion that a decision on Mueller’s testimony should be left up to Attorney General William Barr, tweeting that Democrats are “looking for a redo because they hated seeing the strong NO COLLUSION conclusion.”
“Bob Mueller should not testify,” Trump wrote in a characteristically deranged series of tweets. “No redos for the Dems!”
Why someone who has supposedly been “totally vindicated” by the special counsel would want to keep him from speaking publicly about the probe is a mystery, but the effort to silence Mueller escalates the president’s fight with House Democrats, who say they’re looking to bring the special counsel before Congress this month — possibly as soon as next week, Rep. David Cicilline said Sunday. The testimony, which Cicilline said could take place May 15, would represent the first public comments on the nearly-two-year Russia investigation by the notoriously tight-lipped special counsel.
Former prosecutor Joyce Vance said this on MSNBC:
“If Trump has nothing to worry about, he’d be scheduling Mueller’s testimony himself. His concern is a red flag.”
On the one hand, Trump tells anybody who will listen that the report vindicates him and proves the entire investigation was a witch hunt, but then, on the other hand, has his AG block access to the unredacted report and tries to keep Robert Mueller from publicly testifying before Congress.
Look folks I don’t want to get all conspiracy theorist here but I think Trump might be trying to hide something.
He kind of reminds me of the kid who comes home bragging that he got all “A’s” and then freaks out when you ask to see his report card.
