Speaking to reporters from the White House on Thursday, President Trump announced his plans to leave the decision regarding allowing special counsel Robert Mueller to publicly testify up to US Attorney General William Barr.
“I’m going to leave that up to our very great Attorney General, and he’ll make a decision on that,” said Trump, who went on to call Mueller “no friend of mine,” while denouncing Mueller’s investigation team.

While President Trump has previously signaled against Mueller’s public testimony, AG Barr has indicated that he may be open to the possibility.
Demand for Mueller’s testimony comes as Democrats and mainstream media outlets continue struggling with the results of the probe, which ultimately cleared Trump of collusion and obstruction allegations.
