House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler has demanded that Attorney General William Barr testify before Congress as soon as Washington reopens next month.
In an interview Wednesday, Nadler said he’s prepared to do whatever it takes to get Barr on the stand. He noted that he will consider issuing a subpoena.
“Now that the District of Columbia has expanded the stay-at-home order until June 8, we expect to see Barr in front of our committee on June 9th — the very next day,” stated the New York representative.

This comes amid mounting allegations that Barr is “politically meddling” in federal cases.
According to reports, Barr was originally set to testify on March 31, but the hearing was delayed indefinitely due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
