House Judiciary Committee members under the leadership of Chairman Jerrold Nadler voted today to have staffers and experts question Attorney General Bill Barr in their committee hearing on Thursday.
They are afraid that Barr will blast them out of the water.

It is a pathetic move by weasel Democrats.
The CT Post reported:
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are discussing holding Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for ignoring a subpoena and threatening to skip a scheduled, according to several lawmakers and officials familiar with the plan.
During a pair of closed-door meetings Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, the committee decided that it would probably make a push for a Barr contempt citation if he refuses to testify Thursday or ignores their subpoena for the full, unredacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller III.
Lawmakers and officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to freely discuss private deliberations, cautioned that no final decision has been made. Barr was supposed to hand over the full Mueller report by 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Additionally, Barr on Friday threatened to skipa Judiciary Committee hearing over objections to the format in which a counsel would question him alongside lawmakers. As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, the committee has yet to receive an answer about whether he is coming, panel officials said.
