Attorney General William Barr will face pointed questions on Wednesday about his handling of the special counsel’s report on Russia’s role in the 2016 election when he testifies before Congress amid accusations he misrepresented the document’s findings, ONAreports citing Reuters.

Barr’s appearance will mark the first time a member of President Donald’s Trump administration will be testifying about the contents of Robert Mueller’s report into whether Moscow conspired with the Trump campaign during the 2016 vote and whether the president tried to impede the investigation.

The attorney general, appointed by Trump, will tell Congress on Wednesday it is up to them to figure out what to do with the findings of Mueller’s report, now that the Justice Department has essentially completed its work.
