Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have sent a letter to Republican committee Chair Lindsey Graham to insist on the importance of bringing Robert Mueller before their committee. To demonstrate the importance, the Democratic senators have included a list of 60 questions that can only be answered by the special counsel’s appearance.
While not everyone in the Senate seems to be on the same “case closed” page that Mitch McConnell is selling, there is no one more dedicated to the cause of getting back to the important issue of “but her emails” than Lindsey Graham. On May 1, Graham made it clear that he wasn’t willing to call Mueller to testify, despite questions that emerged at a hearing with Attorney General William Barr. Graham offered to send a letter to Mueller to resolve one issue, but insisted repeatedly that the whole investigation was “over,” so there was no reason to bring Mueller in.

Did the investigation examine the possibility that U.S. election or Trump campaign information was shared with Russia through these entities? To what degree was the investigation able to determine whether the Trump Tower Moscow project was part of an effort to gain influence over Donald Trump?
