Attorney General William Barr has accepted an invitation to testify March 30 before the House Judiciary Committee, according to a letter sent Wednesday.

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

The request to testify was made to address a "pattern of conduct in legal matters relating to the president that raise significant concerns," including:

  • The removal of former U.S. attorney for Washington, D.C., Jessie Liu, who led the prosecutions of Trump associates Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, and Paul Manafort.
  • Rudy Giuliani's sending the Justice Department information about the Bidens in Ukraine.
  • The decision to overrule prosecutors on the lengthy sentence recommendation in the Stone case.

"These are not the only issues that our Committee intends to discuss with you when you appear but they are enough to require our immediate attention," the letter concluded. "We look forward to your testimony."

The letter was signed by Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and his committee.
