Attorney General William Barr, the face should be argued, a survey by the representatives of the people, not Congress-staff, Florida Congressman Greg Steube, a Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee.

House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Greg Steube, said attorney General William Barr, is “certainly not scared” testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

Steube, R-Fla., from the comments on “outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner” on Tuesday, the day before, Barr is scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee, his first appearance before Congress since the release of Special Counsel Robert Müller Russia-report.

The House Judiciary Committee requested that Barr to testify. Fox News learned over the weekend, the Chairman of the legal Committee, Jerry Nadler, D-NY, wants the judiciary Committee staff-and not as members of Congress — question Barr on his dealings with the Müller report.

Barr only wants the legislator to do and, according to a source close to the Committee said he will not come, to testify, based on how things currently stand.

The resulting spat comes after Barr endured withering attacks from congressional Democrats, who have outright accused, to sacrifice him, his integrity to appease President Trump. Barr led the release of Müller ‘ s report in the last couple of weeks, and he has largely been a punching bag for progressives frustrated that Müller, the probe found no evidence for allegations that the Trump team, in cooperation with the Russians.

“Come listen to the Congress, to ask the members of Congress, you ask. Barr’s submission to the Senate, has said there is no problem with the rules and the way that you the things for the Senate Committee,” Steube,.

He added, “I think, attorney General Barr is ready, the Congress and testify to it, and hear from members of Congress.”

On Monday, Nadler Barr suggested, “fear”, the follow-up questions on Müller-Russia-report.

“If the General government is subject to the lawyer to be afraid, to ask themselves, where it can follow, that may indicate lack of confidence in his own position, and more to the point, we have to get to the bottom of these questions,” Nadler said.

He added, “Chairman Nadler says he wants to focus on the facts We had 22 months, $ 25 million of a Mueller-examination, 2800 summonses, 500 witness interviews, 500 search warrant. We have a lot of facts and evidence, which was to be in the Miller report able to determine whether or not the trump campaign, in cooperation with Russia. And the answer is ‘no’.”

“And the General state Prosecutor (Deputy Attorney General), Rod Rosenstein, do not agree to, in order to move forward on obstruction charges. They (the Democrats) has not the answer you wanted from this investigation, so that you now feel you have to do anything and everything they can to try and investigate the President.”
