80. I stand corrected. I apologize. You said he feared for his reputation and family's safety. However,

those concerns would have stopped him long before now. And as there will be a transcript and testimony, safety concerns seem a moot point. My guess is he does not want the circus televised hearings become and feels he need not be grilled on the report. Perhaps he does not like the idea of making public his disagreement with Barr and Rosenstein.
It seems he is an institutionalist and respects hierarchy.
Yes, these open hearings, and open trials, do get showy and the medium can facilitate the public and the two parties distorting, spinning.
No you did not call him a coward and I get your theory. I just believe he and his team have risked safety for the past two years so once the cat was let out of the bag, no difference. He has given a good part of the election hacking game away, and Trump’s uncharged crimes, at the same time strongly warning about the Russian peril to our democracy, so that what he would say about a report already published—well, why would testifying suddenly trigger a mob hit or spy jab?
He has indicted and exposed members of GRU. A fait accompli.
I don’t think Cohen and Manafort have said all they could about Trump and Russian crime syndicate, or Sater yet, so maybe they have been leaned on?
