    President Trump has repeatedly stated that Robert Mueller should never have been allowed to be appointed as special counsel because “he wanted the job of FBI director and he didn’t get it.”

    Rank-and-file Democrats made clear Tuesday they believe Mueller must testify publicly given the gravity of the investigation. 

    Mueller had been expected to testify on May 15, but that date came and went without an appearance by the special counsel. Because he remains in his job with no set date for when he will step down, he remains a subordinate of Attorney General William Barr. But Barr denied that he had secretly blocked Mueller from testifying, according to a report by The Hill.

    Attorney General Bill Barr told The Wall Street Journal last week: "It's Bob's call whether he wants to testify."

    House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, has repeatedly said that Mueller must appear, and he will subpoena Mueller if necessary.

    There is very little chance that Mueller will testify as he will be required to answer some uneasy questions about the scope of his investigation which could have significant impact down the road, as President Trump declassifies documentation relating to the Muller investigation in the coming weeks.

    The Hill's John Solomon reports that Former British spy Christopher Steele made a stunning admission during an October 11, 2016 meeting with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, just 10 days before the FBI used his now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page and the campaign's ties to Russia.

    If ever there were an admission that taints the FBI’s secret warrant to surveil Donald Trump’s campaign, it sat buried for more than 2 1/2 years in the files of a high-ranking State Department official.

    According a typed summary of the meeting - which sat buried for over  2 1/2 years until an open-records litigation by Citizens United - Steele said that his client "is keen to see this information come to light prior to November 8," the date of the 2016 US election. Also in the meeting was an employee of Steele's Orbis Security firm, Tatyana Duran.

    And according to The Hill, Kavalec's notes of the meeting - including this stunning admission - do not appear to have been provided to the House Intelligence Committee for its Russia probe, according to former Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA). 

    "They tried to hide a lot of documents from us during our investigation, and it usually turns out there’s a reason for it," Nunes told The Hill's Solomon, who notes that One member of Congress had transmitted the memos to the DOJ's Inspector General, Michael Horowitz out of concern that the IG's office had never seen it either. 

    The FBI has retroactively classified Kavalec's notes on 4/25/2019, despite the fact that it was originally marked unclassified in 2016. It is set to "Declassify on 12/31/2041," 25 years after the 2016 election.

    • New FBI filings revealed that Comey's personal notes and memos, detailing his meetings with Trump, were 'of interest' to Mueller's probe 
    • It determined that disclosing any of Comey's memos could have 'adversely affected the Russia investigation' 
    • Revealed Comey's memos include 'highly sensitive information from the pending investigation' that were not the subject of his testimony
    • Also feared that disclosing Comey's memos could have affected testimony of individuals, an apparent reference to Trump, during Mueller's investigation

    James Comey was a witness in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, and his memos contained far more sensitive information than was previously known, it has been revealed. 

    New FBI filings state that Comey's personal notes and memos, which detailed his meetings with Donald Trump, were 'of interest' to Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. 

    'The FBI and the Special Counsel’s Office have determined that disclosure of the Comey Memos – or any portions of them – could reasonably be expected to adversely affect the pending Russia investigation,' the filing reads.  

    The filing, which was released by the Justice Department on Monday, states that Comey's memos include 'highly sensitive information from the pending investigation' that were not the subject of his testimony. 

    'Additional witnesses are identified and a confidential human source is identified by both true and code name, as well as evidence obtained therefrom, and investigative steps taken or not yet taken in the investigation as of the dates of the meetings memorialized in the memos are revealed,' it states. 

    'The memos also identify at least one investigative target and reflect aspects of the investigation as of those dates.' 

    Comey's memos are also said to include 'information concerning the President's foreign policy decision making' as well as notes from 'non-public interactions' between 'specific foreign governments and officials' and US government officials.

    The nation’s capital is anticipating the release as soon as Sunday of Attorney General William Barr’s report to Congress summarizing principal findings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as Republicans and Democrats stake out positions on how much information should be released to Congress and the public.   

    Mueller submitted the still-secret document to Barr on Friday evening, capping an investigation into whether President Donald Trump or those around him conspired in Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, a probe that’s cast a cloud over Trump and his administration for almost two years.

    “Congress needs that evidence, and the American people need that evidence to make judgments,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat from New York, said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” one of three appearances on Sunday talk shows. “If we have to, yes, we will certainly issue subpoenas to get that information.” 

    Barr, 68, who was sworn in as Trump’s second attorney general about five weeks ago, is working with Deputy General Rod Rosenstein to figure out how to present Mueller’s conclusions, a Justice Department official said. Rosenstein appointed Mueller, a former FBI director, as special counsel in May 2017.

    Trump, who’s repeatedly called Mueller’s 22-month investigation a “witch hunt,” hasn’t commented publicly. The White House hadn’t received or been briefed on the Mueller report as of Sunday morning, spokesman Hogan Gidley said. Trump returned to one of his golf courses in Florida Sunday, after having played on Saturday while spending the weekend at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
