House Democrats are struggling in their attempts to get mileage out of the redacted Mueller report, their efforts to highlight damning episodes and testimony stymied by a stonewalling White House.

According to the New York Times, with potential star witnesses like former White House counsel Don McGahn looking likely to ignore Democrats’ summons, they are turning to the one person who may be willing and able to bring the report to life: its author.

The House Judiciary Committee has been in talks with special counsel Robert Mueller about testifying, and chairman Jerry Nadler has expressed confidence that a deal will be brokered.

Mueller is still an employee of the Department of Justice, though Attorney General William Barr said Wednesday that “it’s Bob’s call” whether or not he testifies.
