Robert Mueller and the House Judiciary Committee are looking at May 15 as a possible date for the special counsel to testify on the Russia investigation, House Democrat and committee member David Cicilline said in a Fox News interview Sunday.
"A tentative date has been set for May 15 and we hope the special counsel will appear," Cicilline said on Fox News Sunday. "Until the date comes we will never have an absolute guarantee."
But Cicilline later clarified on Twitter that no date has been set in stone yet.
Calls for Mueller to testify have intensified after it was revealed that the special counsel wrote Attorney General William Barr a letter taking issue with his summary of the Russia investigation's principal findings.
In his letter, Mueller said Barr's summary "did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office's work and conclusions" and had caused "public confusion about critical aspects of the results."
Barr criticized Mueller's letter as "a bit snitty" during testimony to the Senate last week, saying it was "probably written by one of his staff people."
The attorney general also refused to turn over notes from a phone call he had with Mueller about Barr's summary of the Russia probe.
