Days before he is set to take questions on Capitol Hill, U.S. Attorney General William Barr is apparently reconsidering.
House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler has reportedly proposed ground rules for Thursday’s planned testimony.
Sources say the New York Democrat wants to give each committee member five minutes to question Barr. He also reportedly wants both sides to have 30 minutes for additional questioning.
Reports this weekend signal that Barr does not agree to those terms and is looking for a different format.
Some on social media are urging Nadler and the committee to use congressional powers to compel Barr’s testimony.
If AG William Barr indeed refuses to testify before the House committee to which he is being called, @RepJerryNadler must not only subpoena Barr but Barr must be told, explicitly, that the Capitol Police will be used to find him, handcuff him and drag him there. Period.
