William Barr as the new Attorney General of the United States, will make the call about who gets a copy of the final report issued by special counsel Bob Mueller. But if he tries to stop Congress from using Mueller’s work for its own probes, he will have a major fight on his hands, according to House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY).
Rep. Joe Neguse (D., Colo.) said Friday that the House Judiciary Committee will “likely” investigate perjury charges against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Joe Neguse, a freshman member of the Judiciary Committee, made the comments to a group of his constituents on Friday. He said that he was very concerned about perjury claims against Kavanaugh and that his committee may take steps to impeach him depending on their findings.
The Associated Press (AP) is reporting this morning that two of the most powerful members of the U.S. House of Representatives have promised to fully investigate the new report from Buzzfeed News that President Donald Trump directed his attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, to lie under oath.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has introduced a bill to protect special counsel Robert Mueller.
The congressman brought up the legislation on Thursday as the first order of business after the new Congress was sworn in. The bill seeks to provide a layer of protection for special counsel Mueller, which would allow him to challenge in court any move to fire him.
