Attorney General Bill Barr will testify before House Democrats next month where he'll face questions on why he overruled Roger Stone's sentencing and what is going on with Rudy Giuliani's investigation of the Bidens.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, who helped lead the impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump, announced Wednesday Barr will testify on March 31.
Nadler outlined three areas he intends to question Barr on, all of them having to do with allegations from Democrats that the president abused his power.

Barr will be asked about the removal of U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu, who oversaw the prosecutions of President Trump’s deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates, President Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn, and President Trump’s longtime political adviser Roger Stone.
Trump withdrew Liu's nomination to be the Treasury Department's undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes, a top position overseeing economic sanctions, after the four prosecutors overseeing Roger Stone's case resigned in the wake of Justice Department interference in Stone's sentencing.
Liu would have to face confirmation before the Senate for the position and would be sure to be subject to tough questioning from Democrats on Stone.
Barr will also be asked about the process by which Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is feeding him information about his probes of Joe and Hunter Biden.
And, finally, Barr will be asked about the decision to reduce a recommended sentence for Stone, who was convicted of lying under oath.
The announcement comes as Elizabeth Warren, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, called for Barr's resignation.
'Congress must act immediately to rein in our lawless Attorney General. Barr should resign or face impeachment. And Congress should use spending power to defund the AG’s authority to interfere with anything that affects Trump, his friends, or his elections,' she wrote on Twitter.
