House Democrats wasted no time in announcing that Attorney General William Barr will be called to testify before the Judiciary Committee.
Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) tweeted:
In light of the very concerning discrepancies and final decision making at the Justice Department following the Special Counsel report, where Mueller did not exonerate the President, we will be calling Attorney General Barr in to testify before @HouseJudiciary in the near future.

Democrats aren’t falling for Trump’s Mueller report con
William Barr was nominated by Trump to be attorney general to do one thing. Barr was supposed to end the Mueller investigation. His “conclusion” that Trump did not obstruct justice has raised a giant red flag with both legal experts and members of Congress. Barr is not in a position to make a determination on whether or not Trump obstructed justice.
The rushed wrap up of the Mueller investigation combined with the White House‘s refusal to release the Mueller report has alarm bells going off.
Trump is trying to con his way out of this scandal.
House Democrats aren’t having any of it. They are going to bring Barr to the Hill and make him answer questions about the Mueller report, his letter, and his role in ending the investigation.
The letter from William Barr to Congress is not the end of this matter by a long shot.
Democrats are fighting back, and are going to get to the truth which may lead to the impeachment of Trump.
