THE WHITE HOUSE — Attorney General William Barr is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday about Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Barr also is expected to testify before the House Judiciary Committee the following day.

These appearances will give Democratic lawmakers an ability to grill Barr on his handling of Mueller’s final report.

In addition, the Senate testimony will give Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) a chance to ask Barr about the FBI’s handling of its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Graham said from the Senate floor last month that an investigator needs to investigate “the abuses, potentially, by the Department of Justice and the FBI regarding the Clinton email investigation.”

Graham went on to ask, “Was there two systems of justice in 2016? One for the Democratic candidate and one for the Republican candidate?”

Regarding Mueller’s investigation of President Donald Trump, Graham tweeted on Tuesday morning:
