House Democrats finally got their wish to have former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify before the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees.
ABC News reports President Trump has broken his silence is “irate” at the news but stopped short of saying he would stop it from occurring.
When asked by a group of reporters outside of the White House if he would act to block Mueller’s testimony on July 17th from occurring, Trump answered: “I don’t know anything about it.”
“I just heard,” Trump continued. “My only response to Mueller is: does it ever stop?”
“It is a disgrace,” the president also said. “No obstruction, no collusion [but] Democrats want a do-over.”

As the Western Journal reports, Trump also criticized Mueller’s integrity during a phone interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.
Speaking of former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Trump said: “Here’s the problem, Robert Mueller, they worked for him, and the two lovers were together, and they had texts back and forth, emails back and forth.”
“Mueller terminated them illegally. He terminated the emails. He terminated all of the stuff between Strzok and Page. You know, they sung like you’ve never seen,” the president continued, per the report.
“Robert Mueller terminated their text messages together. He terminated them. They’re gone. And that’s illegal. That’s a crime,” Trump contended.
Trump noted in his interview with Bartiromo that despite the Mueller investigation, his administration has overseen an exceptionally strong economy.
“Let me tell you, I have done great on the economy,” Trump said, according to Newsmax.
“I have done great with the military.”
“I have done great with everything. Here is what is unfair. I’ve had a 24-7, a phony witch hunt. A disgusting, phony witch hunt,” he added.
