Last week we started to see cracks in the dam that held the Mueller report away from Congress and the public. Even POTUS’ biggest sycophant Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that Congress should see the Mueller report. Republicans in the House of Representatives’ investigative committees were supporting Trump, but now even that is changing.

The ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Representative Doug Collins (R-GA), has recognized that he had better get onto the winning side of this investigation. Breakfast Media White House reporter Andrew Feinberg tweeted the news:

‘INBOX: House Judiciary Ranking Member @RepDougCollins has asked Chairman @RepJerryNadler to invite Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify before the committee “without delay.”‘

The Republican representative has suggested that House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) invite the special counsel Robert Mueller to come before their committee “without delay.” He formalized his request in a letter to Nadler. Collins said it was best to:

‘…seek both transparency and for the American public to learn the full contours of the special counsel’s investigation.’

Collins also said that asking Mueller to testify would be a preferable to issuing a subpoena for Mueller’s full, unredacted report from the Department of Justice. “…It is special counsel Mueller who is best-positioned to testify regarding the underlying facts and material:”

‘Attorney General Barr was never part of this investigation, and instead simply reviewed the special counsel’s final report and has provided Congress, so far, with the special counsel’s principal conclusions. While he can testify surrounding his decision to provide the committee with principal conclusions, it is special counsel Mueller who is best-positioned to testify regarding the underlying facts and material in which you are so interested.’

Collins’ full letter is below:
