No Holds BARRed on Capitol Hill

It’s been an eventful week, to say the least, for U.S. Attorney General William Barr. On Tuesday, special counsel Robert Mueller was revealed to have sent Barr a letter strongly objecting to the AG’s characterization of the report’s findings. The next day, Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the report. By Thursday, the Attorney General skipped his scheduled hearing before the House Judiciary Committee over a disagreement about whether staff, rather than elected members, could question him.
