Attorney General William Barr is set to testify before Congress about the Justice Department’s fiscal 2020 budget request.
Barr will be pressed by members of the House Appropriations Committee Tuesday. He’s also expected to answer questions about his summary of the Mueller investigation, which found no collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.
Also on Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee will be holding a hearing on nationalism in America. Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens is scheduled to testify. Owens has gained notoriety through her social media presence and her ‘Blexit’ movement, which looks to liberate African American voters from the Democrat Party.
It’s official!! The next BLEXIT rally will take place in Richmond, Virginia on March 3rd.
You didn’t actually think we’d let @RalphNortham get away with it, did you?
