William Barr To Testify Before House Judiciary Committee About Giuliani 'Feeding' Info to DOJ, Jessie Liu, Roger Stone and More

Attorney General William Barr has agreed to a request from the House Judiciary Committee on March 31 to answer questions about “the misuse of our criminal justice system for political purposes,” among other things.

They plan to question Barr about “the removal of Jessie Liu,” a former U.S. Attorney for D.C. President Trump had nominated Liu in December to become the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes. Liu had planned to remain in her position at the DOJ through her Senate confirmation process, however, according to Axios, she was “unexpectedly informed last month that Attorney General Bill Barr was replacing her with his close adviser Timothy Shea.”

Early on Tuesday evening, it was announced that the President had withdrawn Liu’s nomination for the Treasury Department position.

The Committee told Barr they would also like to question him about his “creation of a new “process” by which President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, can feed information to the DOJ, through you, about the President’s political rivals.”

And they are concerned about the DOJ’s decision to reduce the sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone.

The letter said:

Since President Trump took office, we have repeatedly warned you and your predecessors that the misuse of our criminal justice system for political purposes is both dangerous to our democracy and unacceptable to the House Judiciary Committee.

In your tenure as Attorney General, you have engaged in a pattern of conduct in legal matters relating to the President that raises significant concerns for this Committee.

I am sure that Mr. Barr will conduct himself admirably. He is smart, he is resourceful and he is unflappable. He may even have some devastating and unwelcome information for them.

Nadler et al. may wind up regretting this. I certainly hope so.
