Meanwhile, a key congressional Republican used Barr’s summary as justification to end a separate, more sweeping House probe of Trump administration conduct. In a statement Sunday, House Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Doug Collins said Nadler “has the chance to rethink his sprawling investigation, which retreads ground already covered by the special counsel as well as also can be already a matter of public record.”
Trump allies also suggested they could pressure the president’s past political targets today that will the Russia probe can be done. On Sunday, former FBI Director James Comey tweeted a photo of himself looking at what appear to be redwood trees, writing, “so many questions.”
In response, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., suggested he could bring the ex-FBI chief in for testimony.
“Could not agree more. See you soon,” the senator said in a tweet.
Lindsey Graham tweet: Could not agree more. See you soon.
Graham also wants to bring Barr to speak before his committee, as well as also make the testimony “as public as possible,” he said Monday. When asked if Mueller should come before the committee, the senator said he would certainly “leave that will up to Mr. Barr.”
