About two-thirds of all Americans (67 per cent) have said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller ought to publicly testify before Congress, including majorities of Democrats (88 per cent) and independents (62 per cent) and about half of Republicans (49 per cent).
In the House for all of those events: Every high-ranking member of the current Democratic leadership, including Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn.
Rep. Jim Jordan of OH, the top Republican on the Oversight Committee, said he, too wants Mueller to testify so Republicans can pursue their own line of questioning about the Russian Federation investigation. "I think the American people need that, I think frankly it's his duty to the American people, and we'll make that happen". Ford replaced President Richard Nixon, who resigned before Congress could impeach him.
And there also are ways that members of Congress in both parties could try to learn new information and further their own ends in the event that Mueller appeared, even within the restrictions he said he would place on himself. An all-time record. Can you believe that?

Houlahan said last month that the House should continue its investigatory efforts and seek the full Mueller report and underlying evidence.
The founders of the United States created the office of the presidency and feared that its powers could be abused.
Only a few insiders know for sure what Mueller has and hasn't investigated.
That's the commonality across Democrats divided over what to do now about Trump, described in the Mueller report as repeatedly trying to shut down the investigation.
That reality could limit how long Pelosi can say yes or no to impeachment questions stemming from Mueller's report.
‘My closest friend’: China’s Xi hails personal relations with Putin
His remark is seen as implicit criticism of the U.S. as Beijing and Washington are sharply divided on trade issues. Mr Putin's foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov said the visit was "a crucial event for our bilateral relations".
The president has said his administration won't cooperate and is fighting some requests in court.
Kirsten Gillibrand: "So far, President Trump has stonewalled Congress". Dean is now an outspoken critic of Trump.
Enough in the GOP have raised objects it's believed they could muster enough votes to over ride a presidential veto on the matter.
Why, though, did Mueller agree?
Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., told reporters Monday it's most important is to assemble "all the facts and data".
Ultimately, though, they did not press the issue.
That's precisely why Trump has tried to paint the special counsel's investigation as a "witch hunt". When Johnson replaced Lincoln, many Republicans did not trust him or want him.
The first measures could be introduced within days, congressional aides said. I mean, just look how the Mueller investigation emboldened Trump supporters and made them even more passionate in their backing. Less remembered is the moment earlier in the day when speaker-designate Bob Livingston, Republicans' choice to succeed Newt Gingrich after a disastrous midterm election performance, shocked his caucus and announced on the floor that he, too, would resign from the House after Hustler magazine threatened it would go public with his numerous extramarital affairs. But in some conservative areas, it hardly came up at all as voters focused on health care, the economy and other issues.
Justice Department officials were not immediately available for comment. They are unlikely to remove him from office, unless public sentiment shifts strongly in favor of it.
But Pelosi rejected reports of division within her ranks on how to proceed with congressional oversight of Trump.
