Watch Live: Bill Barr testifies before House Judiciary Committee - US attorney general William Barr
Attorney General William Barr is sworn in. "Pleased to be here this morning," he says.
Attorney General William Barr is appearing before House lawmakers Tuesday in a long-awaited showdown between congressional Democrats and one of the President's most effective enforcers.
The start of the hearing was delayed Tuesday morning after House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler was involved in a car accident that did not involve another vehicle on his way to Washington, a spokesman said. Nadler, who was not driving, was not hurt, the spokesman said, but the start of the hearing was delayed until after 11 a.m. ET as a result.
