Bob Mueller

An escalating subpoena war between the executive and legislative branches has Democrats fearful that the Trump administration may try to prevent special counsel Robert Mueller from testifying in front of Congress.

Mueller tentatively agreed to a May 15 hearing date at the invitation of the House Judiciary Committee — and for the past few weeks, Attorney General William Barr has said publicly he has no objection. But in recent days, President Donald Trump has gone from saying it’s up to Barr to decide to declaring via tweet that “Bob Mueller should not testify.”

Mueller is still technically a Justice Department employee until the end of the month, which means Barr is still his boss. Now, Democrats are afraid that Trump’s outburst means the president will try to prevent Mueller from appearing in front of Congress.
