“He is certainly going to testify again, whether he wants to or not. He’s a private citizen, they’re probably going to serve him with a subpoena this afternoon,” Napolitano said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning.
His remarks come a day after Mueller spoke publicly for the first time since beginning his now-completed Russia investigation, and more than two months after submitting his report to Attorney General William BarrWilliam Pelham BarrTrump accuses Democrats of crime amid rising calls for impeachment DOJ, special counsel say there is ‘no conflict’ on Mueller, Barr statements about obstruction inquiry Schiff: Mueller can answer ‘a great many questions’ beyond his report MORE.
Mueller said Wednesday that if his office “had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”
He also said that Justice Department guidelines prohibited his office from bringing charges against the president, and that the same guidance states “the Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing.”
“I think [Attorney General Barr and Mueller] are going to testify next to each other at the same time. That would be really dramatic,” Napolitano said.
Mueller stated Wednesday he does intend to speak again publicly.
