Prosecutor fired by Barr to testify before House committee next week

Fired US Attorney Geoffrey Berman is scheduled to appear behind closed doors before the House Judiciary Committee on July 9 to discuss the circumstances surrounding his surprise ouster. Berman’s expected appearance comes after two prosecutors testified publicly before the committee last month to accuse AG Barr of politicizing the DOJ’s probes and recommending a lighter sentence for Roger Stone.

"It's unclear why Berman was removed. His office has been involved in a number of high-profile investigations involving people connected to the president, including an investigation of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's business activities and the prosecution of two Florida businessmen, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, former associates of Giuliani's who were tied to the Ukraine impeachment investigation." Looks like there's some more drama cooking up before the November elections. If the House does manage to get something significant out of this guy, it could be a game changer for Biden. He's already assumed a sizable lead over Trump, as per many polls.
