A purported doctor who goes by the alias Dahanc

chengxiang recently wrote a WeChat article saying he often encountered patients who fell for the fake adverti

ly capture the context, nature and substance of this Office’s work.” Several Democrats have called on him to resign.

Nadler had set a Wednesday deadline for Barr to hand over the unred

acted report and its underlying evidence. Barr canceled his testimony after clashing wit

imited power, the system of not having a president as a dictator – is very much at sta

ke,” Nadler told reporters after a 15-minute committee session held in place of Barr’s appearance.
