Former special counsel Robert Mueller is seeking to “testify in private” the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee revealed on Thursday.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) was asked for a status update on why the American people have yet to hear from Mueller, despite his report having been submitted sixty days ago.
“I think I can say at this point, that he wants to testify in private,” Nadler revealed.
“Why?” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow asked.
“I don’t know why. He wants — he’s willing to make an opening statement but he wants to testify in private,” Nadler replied.
He said that a transcript would be made public, but that there would not be video of the hearing broadcast on television.
