Barr to testify before House panel next week on Mueller report

Attorney General William Barr is scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee next Thursday on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, the panel announced Thursday.

Barr’s appearance, which is public, will offer lawmakers on the Democratic-led panel to grill him on his handling of Mueller’s final report, as well as the special counsel’s findings on Russian interference and potential obstruction of justice by President Trump.

The attorney general's House testimony, which had been expected, will come one day after he appears before the GOP-chaired Senate Judiciary Committee to answer questions on the same topic.

Barr released a redacted version of Mueller’s sprawling 448-page report last Thursday, roughly three weeks after summarizing the special counsel’s principal conclusions in a four-page letter to Congress. Democrats have relentlessly criticized Barr for painting what they see as a biased portrait of Mueller’s findings.

They have demanded he provide Mueller’s full report and underlying evidence to Congress. House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) issued a subpoenaed for those documents on Friday, demanding the Justice Department comply by May 1 — one day before his scheduled testimony.

1. I wish they'd had Mueller testify first... but I don't want any delays.

6. Actually, I like this order better.

A fellow DUer mentioned it two weeks ago and it made sense. We know Barr will lie, or at least not tell the whole truth, so it is better to let him lie under oath then ask Mueller the same questions and follow up for the real story.

7. A Lot about Naught

He'll not cede one inch to Congress. He'll just blatantly lie and deny, and there will be no consequences.

The President Asshole Administration's bullying is exposing the glaring weakness in the Constitution: it's all based on the Honor System.

They're daring Congress to prove they can do something about it. So far, the results appear to be: if they can, it will take a lot of time, and the courts might be stacked.

9. The House Democrats

Actually suggested that Barr testify before Mueller. It is their preference here. Get his lies on the record before RM testifies.
