They called it “shocking” and a “gross abuse of power.” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Illinois. Sen. Dick Durbin said in a statement Friday that Barr and Sessions “must testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee under oath” and are subject to a subpoena if they refuse. The demands follow revelations that the Justice Department under former President Donald Trump seized the records of Democratic Reps. Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell from Apple.
