Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to publicly testify before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on July 17.

According to the committee’s chairmen, Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Adam Schiff (D-CA) sent a “friendly” subpoena to Mueller.

In a joint statement, Reps. Nadler and Schiff said, “Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign’s acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates’ obstruction of the investigation into that attack,” reported Fox News.

Rep. Nadler wrote on Twitter Tuesday, “I am pleased to announce that @HouseJudiciary and House Intel will have Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify in open session on July 17, pursuant to a subpoena issued this evening. We look forward to having Mr. Mueller testify, as do all Americans.”

Rep. Adam Schiff also took to Twitter to claim, “Robert Mueller has agreed to testify before Congress pursuant to subpoena. Russia attacked our democracy to help Trump win. Trump welcomed and used that help. As Mueller said, that should concern every American. And now, every American will get to hear directly from Mueller.”

Attorney General Bill Barr said previously that he had no problem with Mueller testifying and would not stand in the way. (Videos Below)

“I don’t think the special counsel’s office considers it a friendly subpoena,” Intel Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff tells CNN on news Robert Mueller has agreed to testify. “He was, and is, deeply reluctant to come testify, but nonetheless he has agreed to respect the subpoena.”

“Bill Barr has felt more than free as attorney general to speak well beyond the Mueller report. And if he is able to speak beyond the four corners of the Mueller report the so too should Bob Mueller feel free to do so.”
