Declared in recent tweet, Trump opposes Mueller’s future testimony. After a long two-year period investigation following Trump’s election, Mueller’s 400 pages report was unable to show any kind of collusion between Trump and the Russians. However, it is an angry Trump that tweeted yesterday morning, May 6th, stating ‘‘ …why would the Democrats in Congress now need Robert Mueller to testify…’’. Indeed, the former FBI director is scheduled to testify on May 15th, decision which is strongly frowned upon by the president. Trump is outraged by this decision after being handed ‘‘complete and total exoneration’’.
Trump’s anger goes on in his tweet by saying that ‘‘after spending more than $35,000,000 over a two year period, interviewing 500 people, using 18 Trump Hating Angry Democrats & 49 FBI Agent-all culminating in a more than 400 page Report showing NO COLLUSION’’. It is hard to imagine that such a consuming and longstanding investigation led to such result which is why some accuse democrats of contesting it unfairly.
Trump went on to declare his two-year presidency as the ‘‘most successful first two years of any President in history’’ but then accusing Mueller and the investigation of stealing two years which ‘‘they will never get back’’.
What many had hoped for –an impeachment- now seems more unlikely than ever. The White House and Democrats are struggling to find a way out in the Mueller report, a solution that would impeach President Trump.
Should Mueller be able to testify and agree to talk, this does not guarantee the extent to which his testimony will be limited. Indeed, due to the need to protect ongoing information and as Mueller is limited by certain procedures on grand jury secrecy, the outcome might not be the one expected. Senate Schumer believes that ‘’we ought to hear the full testimony from Mueller’’ as it might change the outcome and aftermath of this investigation.
