House Judiciary Committee member Rep. David Cicilline on Sunday walked back a claim that special counsel Robert Mueller had agreed via a representative to testify on May 15 about his report on the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 election.
"Just to clarify: we are aiming to bring Mueller in on the 15th, but nothing has been agreed to yet. That’s the date the Committee has proposed, and we hope the Special Counsel will agree to it. Sorry for the confusion," the Rhode Island Democrat said in a tweet.
Earlier, Cicilline said on "Fox News Sunday" that a "tentative date" of May 15 had been reached.
When asked if Mueller had agreed to that date," Cicilline said a "representative of the special counsel has."
"We hope the special counsel will appear," he said. "We think the American people have a right to hear directly from him."

After spending more than $35,000,000 over a two year period, interviewing 500 people, using 18 Trump Hating Angry Democrats & 49 FBI Agents - all culminating in a more than 400 page Report showing NO COLLUSION - why would the Democrats in Congress now need Robert Mueller.......— Donald J.

....to testify. Are they looking for a redo because they hated seeing the strong NO COLLUSION conclusion? There was no crime, except on the other side (incredibly not covered in the Report), and NO OBSTRUCTION. Bob Mueller should not testify. No redos for the Dems!— Donald J.
