House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Thursday morning that Special Counsel Robert Mueller must testify publicly on his investigation into the Trump campaign's conduct surrounding Russian election interference. "The only way to begin restoring public trust" after Barr's "regrettably partisan handling of the Muller report," said the lawmakers, is "for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible." Pelosi and Schumer, along with other members of Congress, also condemned Attorney General William Barr's press conference on the report, calling it "unnecessary and inappropriate."
