Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify before Congress on July 17 on his report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the House Judiciary Committee and House Intelligence Committee announced Tuesday night. In a joint statement, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said that Mueller had agreed to testify in an open session. “Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign’s acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates' obstruction of the investigation into that attack,” they said. The committees issued subpoenas Tuesday to compel Mueller’s testimony, according to the joint statement. The decision to issue subpoenas to compel Mueller to testify is a landmark move that will put an end to a months-long saga on Capitol Hill where lawmakers have for weeks fought to get access to information about whether President Trump obstructed justice.
it will be interesting to see if he sticks to his statement of saying the report speaks for its self or if he will clarify anything about the phone call to Barr where he said he disagreed with the assessment bar had stated or if we will gain new insight , who knows though could just be another dog and pony show
he big picture: Mueller's public testimony has long been the white whale for Democratic leaders who have staved off calls to impeach President Trump until they can further "educate the public" on the contents of the special counsel's report. Public committee readings of the report and expert testimony have failed to garner the same attention that a high-profile hearing with one of the most mysterious figures of the last two years of the Trump presidency undoubtedly will. Flashback: On May 29, Mueller gave his first and only public statement since his appointment in 2017. Here's what he said regarding any potential testimony: There has been discussion about an appearance before Congress. Any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. It contains our findings and analysis, and the reasons for the decisions we made. We chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself. The report is my testimony. I would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before Congress.
and for the minority

i thought he said his report spoke for him allready and would not comment on it farther in public which i think this will be, so if hes not going to comment on it what will he be discussing?
Mueller’s public appearance will bring a spectacle rarely seen during the nearly two-year investigation that ended in March. The special counsel avoided public comment on the probe until the release a redacted, more than 400-page report detailing Russia’s efforts to influence the election and instances of President Donald Trump potentially trying to derail the investigation. Mueller then gave remarks to reporters last month, reinforcing the report’s findings and saying he would not speak any more about it publicly.
