'No rework!': Mueller may speak publicly for the first time in 2 years, but Trump is against
Special Attorney Robert Muller, who was investigating Russian interference in American elections and the possible link between Donald Trump’s campaign headquarters and the Russians, may appear at a public hearing in Congress. Trump is not happy about this.
