Minus Barr, House Committee Convenes Mueller Hearing

A U.S. House committee convened on Thursday without Attorney General William Barr in attendance to discuss his handling of the Mueller report.

Barr appeared at a Senate hearing to defend his handling of the report on Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election on Wednesday.

He told the US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee that he would not appear before the Democratic-led panel, blaming the questioning format.

Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler had told reporters that the hearing would go ahead in hopes that Barr would reconsider.

Committee Democrats have vowed to issue a subpoena to try to force Barr to testify if he does not show up.
