Robert Mueller was compelled to testify before Congress after receiving a letter from Representative Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the judiciary panel, and Representative Adam Schiff, head of the intelligence panel.
In a joint statement, Nadler and Schiff announced Tuesday that Mueller had agreed to testify after the two committees issued subpoenas. (Read the statement below.)
Read the letter the two committee chairmen sent below:
June 25, 2019
The Hon. Robert S. Mueller III
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530
Dear Special Counsel Mueller:
Attached please find subpoenas from the House Judiciary Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to compel your testimony on July 17, 2019. Over the course of discussions about your appearance before Congress, we have consistently communicated our Committees’ intention to issue these subpoenas, if necessary, and we now understand it is necessary to do so.
We further understand that there are certain sensitivities associated with your open testimony. In particular, the Special Counsel’s Office referred several criminal investigations to other offices at the Department of Justice, and certain matters are ongoing. Your office, moreover, admirably limited public comment while the Special Counsel’s Office’s work was ongoing. You have also explained that you prefer for the Special Counsel’s Office’s written work to speak for itself.
Nevertheless, the American public deserves to hear directly from you about your investigation and conclusions. We will work with you to address legitimate concerns about preserving the integrity of your work, but we expect that you will appear before our Committees as scheduled.
Jerrold Nadler, Chairman, House Committee on the Judiciary
Adam Schiff, Chairman, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
