Rep. Devin Nunes said Robert Mueller could "throw a monkey wrench" into matters related to the Russia investigation with his testimony next month.
In an interview Saturday evening on Fox News, the California Republican also expressed concern about what one of Mueller's top prosecutors might say in a closed setting as part of the deal to speak to lawmakers.
"Now what's off about this is — supposedly he's only agreed to testify for four hours. Four hours with the House Intelligence Committee and the House Judiciary Committee is not enough time to get everyone’s questions in," Nunes added.
"In addition, people should know he’s not willing to testify as of now behind closed doors. He's going to send in Andrew Weissmann and his team of geniuses that came up with these conspiracy theories. And that’s not even going to be translated. So stay tuned."
As part of the plan for July 17th, Schiff said that there will also be an "executive session" with members of Mueller's staff.
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe told MSNBC that Mueller's senior staffers will likely "go much deeper" into the details of the Russia investigation.
Joe DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, predicted on Fox Business last week that Weissmann, not Mueller, could do real "damage" to President Trump.
Weissmann was known as Mueller's "pitbull."
According to Michael Wolff's book Siege, Weissmann led the initiative to draft a three-count obstruction of justice indictment against President Trump.

They're conspiring to manufacture evidence of obstruction.
It will all be suggestive with dozens of veiled threats and possibilities and back-alley tangents with intriguing innuendo 😃

Bob Mueller's Team: www.axios.com...
When you see an article like that from 2017, it makes you wonder WHY did Republican Bob Mueller pick all those top Democrat prosecutors as lead investigators? No Republican prosecutors were available???
Between the lines: The people he's hired don't just look tough on paper — they're legal experts with unique, complementary strengths who have fought and investigated crime all around the world. Their expertise suggests how Mueller views this investigation and the direction in which he is hoping to take it.

Lisa Page, an experienced DOJ trial attorney
There has been no official announcement from the special counsel about Page, but WIRED notes Mueller has reached out to her
Her investigatory expertise: organized crime cases, money laundering, and one particularly relevant case where she partnered with Hungary's FBI task force to investigate European organized crime.
Note: Her work in Hungary is what led to the ongoing money laundering case against Dmitry Firtash, a Ukrainian leader who was once business partners with Paul Manafort.
