Trump: No Dem 'Redos,' 'Mueller Should Not Testify'

Striking back against Democrats' attempts at a "redo" of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and report of no collusion or case of obstruction, President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that "Mueller should not testify" to Congress.

President Trump tweeted:

"After spending more than $35,000,000 over a two year period, interviewing 500 people, using 18 Trump Hating Angry Democrats & 49 FBI Agents - all culminating in a more than 400 page Report showing NO COLLUSION - why would the Democrats in Congress now need Robert Mueller......."

And continued:

"....to testify. Are they looking for a redo because they hated seeing the strong NO COLLUSION conclusion? There was no crime, except on the other side (incredibly not covered in the Report), and NO OBSTRUCTION. Bob Mueller should not testify. No redos for the Dems!"

President Trump had previously said Mueller should testify before Congress on his report, but Democrats' treatment of Attorney General William Barr before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week has him changing his tune.

Before AG Barr's testimony, it was revealed Mueller had sent a letter to the attorney general decrying the public and media misunderstanding of the report's findings after Barr's original four-page summary of the full report, concluding no conspiracy on behalf of the Trump campaign in assisting Russia's attempts to meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Democrats have claimed Barr had "lied" to Congress about Mueller's dissatisfaction with his four-page summary, but Barr clarified a phone conversation with Mueller revealed the special counsel reservations were designed to lead to a release of a redacted version of Mueller's full report to the attorney general.

Barr then quickly released the redacted report to the public and a less-redacted version to congressional leadership.

After Barr's sub of appearing before a House committee this week, Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said the House Judiciary Committee he is a member of is aiming to bring in Mueller on May 15.

"Just to clarify: we are aiming to bring Mueller in on the 15th, but nothing has been agreed to yet," Rep. Cicilline tweeted. "That's the date the Committee has proposed, and we hope the special counsel will agree to it. Sorry for the confusion."
