“These are the kind of questions that I think Republicans will be very well prepared. These are the kind of questions currently under investigation by the general inspector, whose report we await. But these are not excluded in any way. So I think that you will regret, that called him.”

Müller has agreed to testify before the House judiciary and intelligence committees on July 17, after she invited the former special counsel Tuesday, according to Nadler and ship.
