House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D-New York) told MSNBC Thursday night that special counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t want to publicly testify before his committee because of the spectacle it would inevitably become.
House Judiciary Chairman Nadler tells @maddow that Robert Mueller wants to testify but only in private with a transcript released to the public. Nadler says Mueller doesn’t want to participate in a televised open hearing that could be a spectacle.

Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen (D) and his chicken certainly did make the committee look dumb, but Nadler didn’t seem to care.
Isn’t he ADORBS?! Brit Hume ZINGS Rep. Steve Cohen for his Barr chicken stunt as only Brit can and it’s PERFECT https://t.co/21Bpnd2TSI

No wonder Mueller won’t appear with the cameras on.
That's hilarious. Nadler is as self aware as a hummingbird. https://t.co/EZc4mgz7lt
