House Judiciary member tells Fox News' Chris Wallace Mueller is tentatively set to testify

It's looking more and more likely that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will testify before the House Judiciary Committee regarding the investigation he led into 2016 Russian election interference and the Trump campaign's conduct surrounding the meddling.

During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) told host Chris Wallace that the committee has set May 15 as a tentative date for Mueller's testimony. It was reported last week that Mueller was in negotiations with the committee, The Hill writes. Cicilline told Wallace that a representative for Mueller has agreed to the date, but nothing is guaranteed at this point.

Of course, the Judiciary Committee is still waiting to see if Attorney General William Barr, who did not appear for his scheduled testimony before the House on Thursday, will hand over a fuller version of Mueller's report on the investigation by 9 a.m. on Monday. If he does not, House Judiciary Chair Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) will ask the committee to "move forward with a contempt citation" against Barr, The Hill reports.
