House Judiciary Committee says Barr has agreed to testify

Source: Axios

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday sent Attorney General Bill Barr a letter confirming he will testify before the panel on March 31st.

Why it matters: The letter comes after President Trump acknowledged in a tweet that Barr had personally overruled career prosecutors to lower the sentencing recommendation for his associate Roger Stone. Democrats in Congress have demanded the intervention be investigated for political interference.

What they're saying: Democrats on the committee wrote that they plan to address a "pattern of conduct in legal matters relating to the President that raise significant concerns." These include:

The removal of former U.S. attorney for D.C. Jessie Liu, who oversaw the prosecutions of Trump associates Roger Stone, Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort.
The "intake process" Barr said he has established for Rudy Giuliani to send the Justice Department information he has gathered about the Bidens in Ukraine.
The decision to overrule prosecutors in the Stone case.
Read the letter.

16. I'm a little confused as to why the date is so far in the future.

Given the importance of the situation, why in the world isn't he scheduled to appear sooner?

3. It is about time

I need Schiff to be doing some detective work as well and present it to Jerry and the rest of the gang.I hope Jerry's wife is out of the woods. We don't know what will happen next year,; so we better get as much done as possible to keep this in the news. Barr knows he needs to go. Trump knows he needs to go as well as all Republicans unless Romney change his party to Independent, he can stay.I am just sick of these thugs getting away and running over our checks and balances in congress and the American people. I agree with someone else who said"why wait,do it now". I could not agree more.

7. I'll believe it when I see it

Sorry to be so pessimistic, but if he actually shows up, he'll just get belligerent and uncooperative.

rethugs have no credibility or goodwill left.
