Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will testify before Congress on July 17.

This comes despite Mueller’s insistence that his report was his final word on the matter of Russian collusion and possible obstruction on the part of President Trump.

During his first and only public appearance since being named special counsel, Mueller said he had no intention of testifying or saying anything further.

He announced his retirement from the Justice Department in that same public address.

But now Mueller has been called back to appear publicly again.

While many Democrats have been calling for Mueller to speak before lawmakers over his findings in the Mueller report, South Carolina Senator and Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham doesn’t believe Mueller’s testimony will amount to anything.

“Bottom line is, after all your looking and all the time you had, all the money you spent, did Trump collude with Russians? No,” Graham said. “Do you stand by your report? Yes. Did you turn it over to the attorney general to decide about obstruction and the attorney general and that he’s not going to revisit it – yes. So it is case closed for me. So they can do anything they want to in the house. I think it’ll blow up in their face.”

In response to the news of Mueller’s upcoming testimony, President Trump said it was yet another example of presidential harassment, adding that “it never ends.”
