Graham: Mueller will be called to testify after Stone op-ed

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday that the Judiciary Committee, which he chairs, will call former Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify about his investigation into Russia’s 2016 election interference and contacts between Moscow and President Trump’s campaign associates.

The announcement, which followed efforts by the White House and other Republicans to discredit the Mueller investigation, came after Mueller wrote an op-ed published in The Washington Post on Saturday defending his team’s prosecution of Roger Stone, the longtime Trump adviser whose 40-month sentence for lying to Congress and witness tampering the president commuted on Friday.

“Apparently Mr. Mueller is willing — and also capable — of defending the Mueller investigation through an op-ed in The Washington Post,” Graham tweeted, noting that Democrats previously called for Mueller to testify.
