Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday invited President Donald Trump to testify before the Senate on his campaign’s alleged ties to Russia.
“I think we could work out a way that it could be dignified, public, with questions, with [Senate Republican] Leader [Mitch] McConnell,” the Democratic senator from New York said on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” adding that senators would consult with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading up the Justice Department’s investigation.
On Friday, Trump said he was willing to testify under oath about his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.
Earlier, Sen. Jack Reed (D-R-I.) said on “Fox News Sunday” that Trump testifying before Congress would raise “the issue of separation of powers.” But he said Mueller should depose the president at some point in his investigation.
