Republicans defend Barr as Klobuchar looks forward to testimony Republicans defend Barr as Klobuchar looks forward to testimony9 of your Democratic colleagues, including Senators Warren and Sanders, have called for the Attorney General to resign. Do you think you should resign? I’M sure I’d be glad if he resigned. I just don’t think that is realistic. He is now going to testify in front of the house Judiciary, Committee, I’d also like him to come to the Senate and, along with my colleagues, I’ve asked him to do that.
