Attorney General Barr may not testify

U.S. & World

(NBC News) Attorney General William Barr is threatening to skip scheduled testimony before the House Judiciary Committee this week and could face a subpoena as a result.

A Justice spokesperson says only lawmakers should question the Attorney General. Republicans call the Democrats’ demands “abusive and illogical.”
