Jerry Nadler Throws a Fit Over Attorney General Barr's Threat to Cancel Testimony

House Judiciary Committee Member Jerry Nadler is threatening to subpoena Attorney General Bill Barr if he refuses to testify at Thursday's planned hearing about the Mueller report. 

Barr was scheduled and ready to testify until Nadler changed the terms of agreement to do so. In addition to questioning from lawmakers, Nadler plans to have Committee attorneys inquire about the report with the attorney general. That's where Barr is standing his ground. 

Congressman Cedric Richmond, a Louisiana Democrat who sits on the Judiciary Committee, said on the Face the Nation over the weekend that his "sole goal" is getting President Trump out of the White House.

Meanwhile, Barr is also scheduled to testify about the Mueller report in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee this week. Chairman Lindsey Graham previewed the focus over the weekend.
