This comes as The New York Democrat Nadler called on Mueller to testify in front of the group, after earlier calls from Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the committee. Collins asked Nadler to “immediately” invite Mueller to testify before Congress.
Nadler requested a number of documents from the White House on March 4 and sent letters seeking information from people and organizations close to Trump.
The House Judiciary chairman sent the requests to 81 groups, people and organizations, searching for constitutional abuses and corruption by Trump. Nadler said in March the requests for documents are to “begin investigations, to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, about corruption and abuse of power.”
Democrats and cable news pundits have said the Mueller report is a cover-up.
