3:09 pm
>> in the end, the iranians have to -- the iranian regime has to make a decision that it wants to behave like a normal nation. and if they do that, we're prepared to negotiate across a broad spectrum of issues with no preconditions. i hope that they will do that, but today we have seen no indications that the iranians are prepared to fundamentally change the direction of their nation. >> reporter: today iran's foreign minister threw fuel on the fire by blaming white house national security adviser john bolton for the british oil tanker being seized by iran, tweeting: make no mistake, having failed to lure donald trump into the war of the century and fearing collapse of his b team, john bolton is turning his venom against the u.k. in hopes of drag it into a quagmire. only prudence and foresight can avoid such ploys. u.s. lawmakers such as senator ron johnson say iran's antics are only uniting the world
3:10 pm

3:30 pm
general and others have spent the few months systematically lying to the american people about what the investigation found. they've said that it found no collusion, that it found no obstruction, that it exonerated the president. all three of those statements are absolute lies. jon: that is house judiciary committee chairman jerrold nadler on "fox news sunday" insisting the president is far from exonerated in the russia probe. i'm jon scott and this is "the fox report." if your just joining us, the new york democrat telling our chris wallace there is substantial evidence that president trump is, quote, guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. this as house lawmakers prepare to question former special counsel robert mueller on wednesday. with more on what we can expect to hear, let's bring in a breaking news reporter for the washington examiner. so the report has been open to public for a couple of months now. are we expecting that robert mueller is going to go well beyond what he said in that report? >> no. i think there's no indication
3:31 pm
whatsoever that he's really going to go much further than the confines of that report, that 448-page report that he had issued. and he has said as much, and he was reticent even to testify before capitol hill. so i think that it'll probably be a little bit less of an exciting event or, you know, i don't think anything huge is going to come that's beyond what's already been published in this report. jon: well, he doesn't seem to want to testify, but democrats who run the house seem to want to compel that testimony. what are they hoping to get out of it? >> they're hoping to get some sort of bombshell. i think they're trying to -- they're going to nail him on, grill him on questions regarding further details of what's laid out in there. is and i think they're going to really just go after the ten different instances of possible collusion that he laid out in the report, and they're really just hoping to find something that they can tether to attack president trump with and, hopefully for them, in terms of

3:33 pm
of this stuff that was going on with the investigation. and it kind of found an interesting sort of split. about 75% of americans believe that mueller should testify before capitol hill, but only -- but 53%, or a majority of americans, don't believe the democrats should continue investigating this whole russia stuff, and they would rather them move on to other more pertinent issues like immigration, the economy, job creation, etc. so i think it'll be interesting to see what turns out from the actual testimony, and i really don't think it's going to be all too much. jon: you mentioned earlier that robert mueller doesn't particularly seem to want to testify, but he has been compelled by house democrats. here's what mueller himself had to say on that score. >> i hope and expect this to be the only time that i will speak to you in this manner. i am making that decision myself. any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report.
3:34 pm
it contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made. we chose those words carefully, and the work speaks for itself. and the report is my testimony. jon: so it would seem if he's not going to go beyond what is in his report, democrats are going to be left sorely disappointed. >> that's what one could argue, and it'll be, again, no one really knows what's going to happen once they start asking him questions, but mueller is notoriously well known for kind of holding that veil of, holding that line and not really leaking to press. mean, during the investigation just seeing him in public and getting photos was a newsworthy event. he's been holding everything chose to belt, and i think it will continue to do so as this testimony heats up. jon: yeah. for his part, the president seems unperturbed about anything that robert mueller might say.
3:35 pm
here's what the president had to say on friday. >> as far as i'm concerned, they already took their impeachment vote, and the impeachment vote was so lopsided, it was a massive victory. and and you know what? at some point they have to stop playing games, because they're just playing games. no, i won't be watching mueller. jon: i mean, if the house wanted to impeach the president, nancy pelosi could have gotten that ball rolling already, could she not? >> she could have, but there's also some internal struggles within democratic leadership there. it's been well reported that her and house judiciary chairman jerry nadler kind of have differing views on how to go about this whole impeachment deal. and with nadler actually asking pelosi in closed door meetingsings multiple times whether or not she would be ready to start an impeachment inquiry, every time pelosi has rebuffed those calls by nadler. so there's a little bit of

in-fighting there, but pelosi 's holding the strings on this whole thing. jon: zachary, thank you. >> thanks for having me, or jon. jon: meanwhile, court records released thursday suggest that president trump and his close aides scrambled to pay adult film star stormy daniels to keep quiet about an alleged affair in the weeks before the 2016 election. those documents made public as federal prosecutors close their investigation with no plans to charge anyone in the scandal beyond president trump's former attorney, michael cohen. rick leventhal has that story. >> reporter: details of the investigation that sent the president's former fixer, michael cohen, to prison are now public with a federal judge's order unredacting most of the 900 pages of documents related to his case.
