Bill Barr, the Trump defending attorney general, is scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning, Wednesday at 10 am ET, and then on Thursday, before the House of Representatives; will he show up?

Well timed news reports of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s dissatisfaction, at Barr’s portrayal of his findings, were made public yesterday.
On 03/27, Robert Mueller wrote of his objection, in a letter to Barr, stating Barr’s summation “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of the investigation.”
You may remember Barr’s Senate hearing, on April 10, when he was asked:
“Did Bob Mueller support your conclusion?”
“I don’t know whether Bob Mueller supported my conclusion.”
Bill Barr knew.
This makes the timing of Rod Rosenstein resignation, just 24 hours before the revelation of Mueller’s letter to Barr, interesting.
Something else to smile about— Elijah Cummings says there will be “fines and or prison for any witness that doesn’t honor subpoenas.”
