The US House Judiciary Committee has set a preliminary date on May 15 for special counsel Robert Mueller to appear and testify on his ''Russia collusion'' investigation results.
"We hope the special counsel will appear," Cicilline, D-R.I., said on "Fox News Sunday." "We think the American people have a right to hear directly from him."
Cicilline also said on the program that there was no "absolute guarantee" that Mueller would appear for testimony.
"The White House has so far indicated that they would not interfere with Mr. Mueller's attempts to testify," he said. "We hope that won't change."
Mueller investigated Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russian officials in that effort and whether Trump obstructed justice as the investigation proceeded.
A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment to NBC News regarding a date for testimony.
