Donald Trump said Monday he doesn't think former Special Counsel Robert Mueller should testify before Congress this week.
'Highly conflicted Robert Mueller should not be given another bite at the apple,' Trump tweeted Monday morning. 'In the end it will be bad for him and the phony Democrats in Congress who have done nothing but waste time on this ridiculous Witch Hunt.'
The president repeated in the tweet a common phrase he's used throughout the investigation and after, claiming the special counsel found no evidence that he conspired with the Russian government to influence the 2016 elections or engage in obstruction of justice to derail the probe.
'Result of the Mueller Report, NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!' he posted in a duo of tweets.
Mueller will testify before both the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees in back-to-back hearings on Wednesday.
President Donald Trump said Monday former Special Counsel Robert Mueller shouldn't get another chance to speak about the Russia investigation
Trump says the case is closed and that the more than 400-page report made public in April shows there was 'no collusion' and 'no obstruction'
Mueller will appear before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on Wednesday for a combined five hours of testimony
At the end of May, Mueller made public remarks from the Justice Department where he plead for the over 400 page Russia report to be taken as his final word on the investigation. He said he would not be speaking further about the probe and announced he was resigning as special counsel.
Faced with the reality of a subpoena from Democratic lawmakers, however, Mueller agreed to appear before a limited two House committees in a total of five hours of public testimony.
He will appear for three hours before the Judiciary Committee and two hours before the Intelligence Committee.
Neither of the hearings will be held behind closed doors so lawmakers won't have the chance to paraphrase or skew his statements.
