Sanders said in a tweet that Trump is “not a dictator” and does not get to determine whether or not Mueller will testify.

“Sorry, Mr. President, you are not a dictator,” Sanders wrote. “In our democracy, when Congress calls on Robert Mueller to testify, he will testify.”

Mueller could testify before Congress sometime this month on the findings of his 22-month long investigation.


Trump on Twitter Sunday alleged Democrats seeking to have Mueller testify are looking for a “redo” after the special counsel's report concluded Trump did not collude with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Trump previously said it was up to Attorney General William BarrBill BarrTrump tells allies he plans to pardon Michael Flynn: report Merrick Garland on list to be Biden's attorney general: report DOJ dropping charges against ex-Mexican defense minister MORE to decide whether the special counsel would testify.

Barr had said he had no objection to Mueller testifying before Congress.
