House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., is set to subpoena Attorney General William Barr following his dismissal of U.S. Attorney for the Southern District Geoffrey Berman over the weekend, reports Axios.
Ranking Member Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, confirmed the report in a letter sent to Nadler on Monday.
Barr on Friday announced Berman had resigned. Hours later, the prosecutor issued a statement denying he had resigned and saying his office's "investigations would move forward without delay or interruption."
Nadler, who has launched an investigation into Berman’s removal, intends to compel Barr to testify before Congress on July 2.
Daniel Schwarz, a spokesman for Nadler, told Axios the committee is seeking Barr's testimony.
"There's certain procedural steps that need to be taken if you were going to send a subpoena, but one of them is consulting the minority," he said.
