House Democrat moves to cut Attorney General Barr's budget by $50 million

House Democrat moves to cut Attorney General Barr's budget by $50 millionNew York Representative Jerrold Nadler said he would move to reduce funding for Barr's personal office as a response to what he called "continued defiance of Congress and improper politicization of the Department of Justice." Nadler said he was making this move and others in the wake of Barr's refusal to appear before his committee. Passing such a cut would require approval of both the Democratic-controlled House and the Republican-controlled Senate.
