House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said decisively Sunday that special counsel Robert Mueller “is going to testify,” something House Democrats have been pushing hard in recent days.

“The American people have a right to hear what the man who did the investigation has to say, and we now know we certainly can’t rely on the attorney general who misrepresented his conclusions,” Schiff said on ABC’s “This Week.” “So he is going to testify.”

President Donald Trump doesn’t want Mueller to speak publicly, tweeting that he “should not testify. No redos for Dems!”

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler said Friday that Mueller would not testify this week, as the committee initially planned, but that the two parties are in talks.

“He will come at some point. If it’s necessary, we will subpoena him and he will come,” Nadler told the Hill.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
