House Chairmen Adam B. Schiff and Jerrold Nadler have called for special counsel Robert Mueller to testify in May on the findings of his investigation into election meddling following the release of his redacted report.

“The committee must be kept ‘fully and currently informed’ of the intelligence and counterintelligence findings, evidence and implications of your investigations,” Mr. Schiff, chairman of the House Permanent Select Commitee on Intelligence, said in a letter addressed to Mr. Mueller Thursday.

“This requires that the Committee receive comprehensive testimony from you about the investigation’s full scope and area of inquiries, it’s findings and underlying evidence, all of the intelligence and counterintelligence information gathered in the course of the investigation, and the status of any ongoing counterintelligence investigation,” he continued.

Mr. Nadler, House Judiciary Committee chairman, sent a similar letter, tweeting, “It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand his findings.”

“We are now requesting Mueller to appear before [House Judiciary] as soon as possible,” Mr. Nadler said.



Attorney General William P. Barr released the full, redacted Mueller report Thursday, saying Mr. Mueller’s 22-month probe found Russia did indeed try to meddle but didn’t get help from Americans.
