( - House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D.-N.Y.) sent out a Tweet this morning after Attorney General Bill Barr’s press conference—in which Barr said the Mueller investigation determined the Trump campaign did not conspire with the Russians to interfere in the 2016 election—saying that people cannot take Barr’s word for what Mueller’s report said.

Nadler also released and tweeted out a letter he sent to Special Counsel Robert Mueller today that requested Mueller testify before the committee by no later than May 23.

“We cannot take Attorney General Barr’s word for it,” Nadler said. “We must read the full Mueller report, and the underlying evidence. This is about transparency and ensuring accountability.”

“It is clear Congress and the American people must hear from Special Counsel Robert Mueller in person to better understand the findings,” Nadler wrote in a tweet that included his letter to Mueller.
