Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday, during an appearance on Fox News Sunday, the committee has set May 15 as a tentative date for Mueller’s testimony. It was reported last week that Mueller was in negotiations with the committee, The Hill writes. Cicilline told Wallace that a representative for Mueller has agreed to the date, but nothing is guaranteed at this point.
