Nadler tells MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that Mueller told the committee he would make his opening statement before the public.
A transcript of Mueller's testimony would be made public, Nadler adds.
Nadler says he does not know why Mueller has been pushing for private testimony, but speculated that the Republican former FBI director "doesn't want to participate in anything that he might regard as a political spectacle."
pecial counsel Robert Mueller wants to talk to Congress about his investigation, but behind closed doors, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said.
Mueller told the committee he would make his opening statement in public, the New York Democratic congressman said Thursday night on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show." A transcript of Mueller's private testimony would be made public, Nadler added.
