Jim Jordan urges Barr to skip House Judiciary hearing if terms aren’t changed

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, encouraged Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday to skip his hearing with the House Judiciary Committee if Democrats don’t back off a format the Justice Department opposes.

Barr is threatening to pull out of the Thursday hearing in objection to Chairman Jerry Nadler’s choice of format. Nadler, D-N.Y., would have Barr face questions from not only members but also the counsel for each party.

Jordan, a member of the committee, argued this strategy is a covert way to start impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

“I think there are a couple of things going on,” Jordan told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs. “One, we have to understand the Democrats already start impeachment proceedings. They are just not calling it that. And the reason they’re not calling it that is because they know it is not justified and they know the American people do not want it. But that is what they are doing and that’s why they want the staff to ask Bill Barr questions because that is how it works in the impeachment process.”
