Does still within:

Do you mind if he testify still; before, you said you didn't care if Mueller testifies?

means: even though ?

It would have been better phrased as:

Do you still mind if he testifies?

meaning "continue to mind". Spoken questions don't always use the best sentence structure or grammar, but this is fine as long as the meaning is clear.

  • Could the sentence be considered ungrammatical? – Norbert Jun 8 '19 at 12:11
  • @Norbert No, just poor style if written. An adverb should be close to the verb it modifies, otherwise it can be confusing. – Andrew Jun 8 '19 at 12:19
