Barr is Taking Hands-Off Approach With Mueller
Attorney General Barr has announced that he will not stop Bob Mueller from testifying in front of Congress if that is what he chooses to do.

According to The Daily Mail:

Attorney General William Barr says it is up to special counsel Robert Mueller whether he will testify before Congress about the 448-page report he worked on for nearly two years.

Barr, who has said previously he does not object to making Mueller available, spoke about the prospect days after President Trump weighed in and said Mueller should not testify.

'It's Bob's call whether he wants to testify,' Barr told the Wall Street Journal as he made his way to El Salvador, where he will focus on the gang MS-13 gang.

'I'm trying to break away from Washington and do the real work of the attorney general,' he said. 

Mueller is currently an employee of the Justice Department and can be blocked from testifying by the administration. This does not seem to be the approach the Trump administration wants to take and they will leave it up to Mueller.
