Attorney General William Barr will receive a COVID-19 test Wednesday after coming into contact with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at his hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Reports say Barr came into close contact with the Texas Congressman moments before he entered the room where the hearing took place — Barr had taken off his mask moments before the exchange.

Gohmert tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday before he was planned to go on a trip with President Donald Trump to Texas. He was found to have the virus during a pre-screening for the trip — where the President is expected to highlight the importance of American oil and energy at a Double Eagle Energy oil rig.

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
