Top House Dem Says ‘Many More’ Trump Officials Could Be Held in Contempt

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D -Md., says “many more” Trump administration officials could be included when the House of Representatives votes next week to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress.

In a meeting with reporters Tuesday, Hoyer reiterated his Monday announcement that the House would vote June 11 on whether to hold Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt for failing to comply with congressional subpoenas.

But he added, “it may include others,” Business Insider reported.

“I see every name who has either refused to respond to a congressional subpoena or a request for documents,” Hoyer said, BI reported. “Or who has been instructed by the president not to respond — is subject to being on that list. I don’t know all of them so I’m not going to try to name all of them.”

“We could go through an entire litany of names who have been in that category,” he said — including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross as well as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, BI reported.

  1. What ever happened to the contempt charges against Holder and the others?
    (I know, nothing, so what could be any different in these calls for contempt?)

    1. What cracks me up is that the Dow just surged 512 points yesterday and the dems want to punish Republicans? They really have something missing between the ears.

      1. COCKROACHES DON’T HAVE ANYTHING BETWEEN THEIR EARS. EXCEPT SHIT THATS WHERE THE SLOGAN CAME FROM “SHIT FOR BRAINS”

  2. Hoyer is another of the looney left. The 2020 election is all but over; Trump will won again. All because of the left pursuit of Russian collusion and obstruction of justice claims against Trump. The left has done absolutely NOTHING but pursue this agenda for almost 3 years, with no results that help their agenda, and all have noticed. Without a criminal prosecution of Trump, they cannot win the election and they know it. As the saying goes; “never put all your eggs in one basket”.

    BTW, do not be surprised if the left dems lose the house in 2019. The people have noticed the left dem lack of effort on their behalf and many who would have never voted for Trump or Republican in the past, will now caat their vote for the right!

  3. The Democrats are the corrupted party. They are the ones who should be suponeoed, not anyone else. The Democrats have lost their minds because they did not get crooked Hillary Clinton into the White House. They have lied, committed fraud, and paid cowards to lie and break our laws, trying to ruin our Constitution, laws, and Country. AMERICA deserves to see Justice served and these corrupted Democrats in prison.

  4. The Dems had better be VERY, VERY careful!!!
    Trump will have their ass in 2020 and the Dems, with their EXTREMELY poor record thus far, will be checking with folks at McDonald’s to see if they want fries with their Big Mac!!!
    I also believe that President Trump is waiting for the best time to bring forward, the FISA warrants and show the Criminality of the Democratic party, to the American people!
    Them some piddly little criminal asses will be roasted!!! Please bring on your bogus, no-teeth indictments Dems!!! Your time is nearly up!
    How much fun will Mr. Barr and President Trump have with that?!?!
    Goofy assed Democrats!!!

  5. Just be patient–The Demomarxists will soon have their days in court–only AG Barr will have the goods on them and it could go clear to the top.. Obama is being looked at. But this time it will not cost 35 million bucks and there will be real and conclusive truth about the coupe’ committed by the highest elements in the former administration. I am hoping to see Obama,the Clintons, brennan, clapper, comey and a host of others doing the perp walk.

  6. With these radical leftist nut jobs running the House Committees, it is becoming a BADGE OF HONOR to be held in contempt by one of them. What a circus the House has become.

  7. Democrats are Socialists, anti-God, God haters, promoting and supporting sin, immortality, corruption, and the downfall of America. Democrats don’t support American citizens. Democrats would rather help illegal immigrants with free medical, free food & housing, free education, than to help American citizens that need help. Listen to them, they tell you that everyday. Vote Trump 2020.
