House Judiciary Committee Votes To Hold Barr In Contempt Over Unredacted Mueller Report

In a vote that came as no surprise, the Democratic controlled House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday voted to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for his refusal to hand over an unredacted copy of the Mueller report.

In a vote that followed party lines, the panel chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) made a formal recommendation to the lower chamber which would hold Barr in contempt for failing to comply with the committee’s congressional subpoena.

In order to prevent the unredacted version of the Mueller report to fall into the hands of a very leaky Congress, President Trump asserted executive privilege over the entire report and its underlying evidence on Wednesday, after Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd recommended the action Thursday night.

“We are disappointed that you have rejected the Department of Justice’s request to delay the vote of the Committee on the Judiciary on a contempt finding against the Attorney General this morning,” wrote Boyd. “Accordingly, this is to advise you that the President has asserted executive privilege over the entirety of the subpoenaed materials.”

  1. The idiots are trying to force AG Bill Barr to commit a crime, so they can then charge him? The Democrats get more ignorant and arrogant every day.

  2. Forcing someone to commit a crime such as this is a Felony. So why can we not indict every dumb as Democrat right now??

  3. This congress has wasted almost 3 years of of time playing Dick Tracy in an attempt to try to discredit President Trump. They have only one objective and that is to destroy our president. It is time for these people to get back to work. They are making out media look like a bunch of amateurs and the laughing stock in Europe
