House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff said on Friday that his panel was willing to subpoena special counsel Robert Mueller, if needed, in order to obtain a clearer picture of the contents of his final report.
"If necessary, we will call Bob Mueller or others before our committee," he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, predicting that the Judiciary Committee may summon Attorney General Bill Barr for testimony as well.
Barr received Mueller's completed report Friday, and could brief House committee leaders on its key conclusion as soon as this weekend.
"At the end of the day, the (Justice) department is under a statutory obligation to provide our committee with any information regarding significant intelligence activities, including counterintelligence. And it's hard to imagine anything more significant than what Bob Mueller has been investigating."
"This began as a counterintelligence investigation by the FBI. It began as the same in our committee, and we have a right to be informed and we will demand to be informed about it," he added.
Schiff did not say whether the Mueller's potential testimony would occur behind closed doors or publicly.
