And the subpoena:

Although Mueller is reluctant to testify about what took place, he said he'd respect the subpoena.

Chairman Schiff also said Mueller's staff will be available to answer questions as well.

ORIGINAL POST

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary and House Permanent Select Committees on July 17 in an open session. The announcement comes after House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and House Permanent Select Committee Chairman Adam Schiff sent a letter to Mueller with subpoenas requiring the Special Counsel to make an appearance.

“Pursuant to subpoenas issued by the House Judiciary and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence tonight, Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III has agreed to testify before both Committees on July 17 in open session,” the Chairmen said in a statement.

"Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia's attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign's acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates' obstruction of the investigation into that attack," the Chairmen said. "We look forward to hearing his testimony, as do all Americans."
