At a separate committee meeting Thursday to vote on authorizing a dozen subpoenas related to the committee's obstruction of justice investigation, Republicans teed off on Nadler and the agreement that was struck.
Mr. Mueller has been subpoenaed to appear before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees next week, in the must-see political event of the summer.
The committees had struck agreements with Zebley and Quarles to testify behind closed doors about Mueller's investigation. White Home officers would possibly possibly per chance try to intervene to block testimony from a amount of those subpoenaed on Thursday who are contemporary or extinct high-level administration officers, as they beget with other witnesses.
That can handiest deepen the standoff between the administration and the Home.
The resolution the committee passed on Thursday also authorizes subpoenas for a dozen individuals who were interviewed by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election.More news: Louisville basketball: Cardinals as characters from Stranger Things
"It's possible a few people could change their opinion, but overall I think it's not likely", Chabot said.
The top Republican on the committee, Rep. Doug Collins, called the subpoena effort "unimpressive and unproductive".
"If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so", Mueller said. "Intel Committee gets to ask all their questions - this committee does not". "I'm not speaking to anything more that he has to say".
Collins told reporters after the vote that he has heard from Democrats who are unhappy.

Barr said he did not know what they were referencing. "They're right there. It's plain as day".
Rep. Kelly Armstrong, R-N.D., pointed out how other hearings about the Mueller report stretched past two hours, "but we are going to spend two hours and nothing longer talking to the guy who wrote the report".
Nadler said he would entertain all reasonable proposals that would allow more members to ask questions of Mueller. Though the logistics for the high-stakes hearing are in flux, Judiciary Committee leaders are eyeing a format in which only 11 members on each side of the aisle get to question Mueller, excluding the committee's more junior members.
The president's lawyers have said Trump's conduct fell within his constitutional powers, but Mueller's team deemed the episodes deserving of scrutiny for potential criminal acts.
The committee's subpoenas to Trump administration officials have been met so far with resistance by the White House, which has argued the officials have immunity from testifying as advisers to the President. It came after weeks of negotiations with the ex-FBI director for a televised appearance.More news: The real reason why Laurent Koscielny has gone on strike at Arsenal
The Senate Intelligence Committee is also expected to receive a briefing from Archey, according to a source familiar with the matter.
