Democrats schedule vote to hold William Barr in contempt

May 6, 2019

  The Democrats who said we must accept the results of the Mueller report have been less than willing to do the same since it revealed there was no collusion between Donald Trump and Russia. So their new strategy is to attack William Barr for redactions he made to the report for national security reasons and drag this out through the 2020 election.

  Calls for William Barr to resign have fallen on deaf ears so now the Democrats, led by Jerry Nadler, are seeking to impeach the Attorney General and I believe they are taking what they believe is the first step by scheduling a Contempt of Congress vote. Here is more: 

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler set up a Wednesday vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for failing to provide Congress with a fully unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The 10 a.m. markup would include a vote on a resolution and an accompanying report on the contempt resolution, the committee said in a statement released Monday morning shortly after Barr missed a deadline set by Nadler.

“The attorney general’s failure to comply with our subpoena, after extensive accommodation efforts, leaves us no choice but to initiate contempt proceedings in order to enforce the subpoena and access the full, unredacted report,” he said. “If the Department presents us with a good faith offer for access to the full report and the underlying evidence, I reserve the right to postpone these proceedings.”

  Forgive me if I am wrong but I thought William Barr offered to show certain members of the Congress with the proper clearance the full report and they turned him down because they also wanted the underlying documents so this, like everything else the Democrats have done since taking over the House, is nothing but show.

  We saw the same thing with Eric Holder and the Republicans and nothing came from it so I would not expect to see anything come from this, although there are different rules for Republicans…

    I am getting more concerned over Mueller’s testimony to congress. Trump made a bad move when he tweeted he didn’t think he should testify….I think all hell will break lose and this has been the setup all along.
    Trump MUST release some of this stuff and wait no longer..he owes it to Barr.

      I think Trump was trying to troll the Dems with that tweet but I agree it was a bad move. Trump would have been better off just letting the Democrats melt down on their own but now they have the “what is he hiding” card to play.
