A Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee says he’s hopeful special counsel Robert Mueller will appear before the panel, citing a “tentative date” for Mueller’s testimony.

Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline told Fox News that “we hope the special counsel will appear” on May 15 and that “we think the American people have a right to hear directly from him.”

The committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York, said last week the committee was “firming up the date” for Mueller’s testimony and hoping it would be May 15.

Cicilline said that “obviously until the date comes, we never have an absolute guarantee.”

Democrats are seeking more information about Mueller’s report on his Russia investigation.
