AG To Testify Before Cmte On Appropriations: Dems Focus On Mueller Report

Attorney General William Barr is set to testify this morning before the Committee on Appropriation.

Many Democrats in the committee have made it clear that they want to use this hearing to question Barr on status of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The hearing — is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. ET — is expected to include a number of questions on routine budgetary matters. The hearing was scheduled to address fiscal year 2020 spending request for the Justice Department.
