Attorney General William Barr will meet with Senate Republicans on Tuesday.
The meeting will take place at their weekly lunch, according to a source familiar with the planning.
The gathering is supposed to center on legal statutes set to expire soon.
It comes as congressional Republicans have mounted an all-out defense of the attorney general.
Barr may quit over President Donald Trump’s public commentary on Justice Department criminal cases.
Republican leadership issued a rare defense of Barr this week, in face of Trump's withering criticism.
If Barr resigns, it would put Senate Republicans in a difficult bind in an election year.
A replacement for Barr is not likely to be confirmed this year.
