Trump says Mueller shouldn't testify before Congress

After Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) announced on Sunday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller might testify before the House Judiciary Committee later this month, President Trump fired off a few tweets, declaring that "Bob Mueller should not testify. No redos for the Dems!"

Trump said Mueller's report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice showed "NO COLLUSION," and he wants to know "why would the Democrats in Congress now need Robert Mueller to testify? Are they looking for a redo because they hated the strong NO COLLUSION conclusion?" Trump went on to claim that the Democrats committed a crime which was "incredibly not covered in the report," although he didn't elaborate on what illegal activity allegedly took place.

After discussing Mueller's possible testimony on Fox News Sunday, Cicilline clarified on Twitter that the committee is "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."
