Robert Mueller could be subpoenaed in the next two weeks

By ANDREW DESIDERIO and HEATHER CAYGLE 06/06/2019 12:10 PM EDT

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler told Democratic leaders at a closed-door meeting this week that he could issue a subpoena to Robert Mueller within two weeks if he is unable to reach an agreement to secure the former special counsel’s public testimony, according to two sources familiar with the meeting.

Nadler’s comments at the Tuesday meeting were his clearest remarks to date on the possibility of compelling Mueller’s attendance at a public hearing. The committee is still negotiating with Mueller, who, according to Nadler, is thus far only willing to answer lawmakers’ questions in private — a nonstarter for most House Democrats.

The sources cautioned that the committee has not settled on a timetable for a potential subpoena to Mueller. Speaker Nancy Pelosi hosted the meeting, and four other committee chairs were in attendance.

On Wednesday, Nadler told reporters that he was “confident” Mueller will appear before his panel, and that he would issue a subpoena “if we have to.”

1. There's a good possibility that Mueller wants

to get supeoned and be compelled to testify in public. It would ease his conscience and he could retire with his honor and integrity intact. It would also solve a lot of political problems for the Dems. Once they get Mueller's sworn testimony on record Trump do anything to stop them, and he can't put the toothpaste back in the tube.
