BARR NONE - U.S Attorney General Bill Barr is expected not to show up at the House Judiciary Committee hearing where he was scheduled to testify today about the Mueller report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, where he was grilled by Democrats following news that Mueller criticized Barr’s characterization of the report as clearing President Trump of obstruction.

As Nate Robson reports, the government lawyers filed court papers Wednesday evening in the Fifth Circuit in Texas, arguing that the elimination of the key individual mandate provision renders the entire Obama-era law unconstitutional. While noting that Main Justice earlier had told the district court that the individual mandate was severable from the whole law, the brief said the government changed its mind “upon further consideration.”
