Attorney General William Barr to Testify in Front of Senate Judiciary Committee
Attorney General William Barr is scheduled to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday about his role in the release of the Mueller report.
He’s expected to face questions about his four page summary that was released ahead of the redacted report.
According to a source, special counsel Robert Mueller wrote to Barr saying the attorney general’s summary did not give enough context about the probe.
He is saying he might not show up after Democrats insisted that lawyers from the committee will be able to ask questions.
This is not the first time House Democrats have clashed with the Trump aministration over who will or will not testify.
Chairman Jerry Nadler has already subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify.
The White House however, sees no reason for McGahn to testify and could try to block it.
Negotiations between the Department of Justice and the House Judiciary Committee will continue regarding Barr’s appearance on Capitol Hill.
