Democrats will be sorry for a subpoena of former special adviser Robert Mueller, who agrees to testify later this summer, according to Alan Dershovitz. "I'm trying to stop them shooting at my feet," he said.
The Law Professor responded to a statement by the Chairman of the Judiciary Commission, Herold Naddler, DN .Y. – who, together with the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, D-Calif., issued summons to Muller to appear in front of the two panels.

Nadal said that no one would have the right to oppose the summons, and that any privilege claimed by the White House would be revoked, since the relevant information would already have been given to the former Special Advisor. 1
"The White House can claim some privilege, but when it reveals a lot of information to Muller and even private lawyers, they give up the privilege. So I think he will answer his questions because it's his civil debt to do it and he's a prosecutor. "
Dershovitz asked Naddl He seems to have overlooked that Mueller remains open for baking by the Republicans.
"He can not refuse to answer questions about the FISA application," Dershovitz said, referring to a FBI request to watch a member of the Trump 2016 Campaign under the FISA.
"These are issues that I think the Republicans will be very well prepared to ask for. These are issues that are currently being investigated by the Inspector-General, whose report we are looking forward to. But they are by no means excluded. I think they'll be sorry they called him. "
Mueller agreed to testify before the justice and intelligence committees on July 17, after calling on the former special council on Tuesday, according to Nadal and Schiff.
