Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., wants Attorney General William Barr to appear before the Senate to answer questions about why Justice Department officials went against their own prosecutors in asking for a shorter prison sentence for Trump ally Roger Stone.
Klobuchar, who is currently vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, said during an appearance on CBS’ “Face The Nation,” that while she is “very glad” Barr will testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee, she hopes he’ll make the same commitment to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Klobuchar continued by saying that it would be during these hearings that lawmakers would be able to discover whether the Justice Department was influenced by President Trump to push for a reduced sentence for Stone.
“The president is constantly tweeting out different requests of the Justice Department,” she said. “And I think here, where you've got career prosecutors that made difficult decisions about how to handle this case, they got a conviction, they put their all into it, and then they get undermined on the sentencing.”
