Nancy Pelosi could send William Barr to jail for this terrible reason
Nancy Pelosi is going nuclear.
The Speaker of the House just revealed how far she is willing to go in order to bring down Donald Trump.
And it involves sending William Barr to jail for this terrible reason.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler gave Attorney General William Barr a deadline of Monday to turn over an unredacted version of the Mueller report and the underlying evidence.
Barr refused on the simple grounds that turning over an unredacted version of the Mueller Report would violate the law on disclosing secret grand jury testimony.
Democrats know this, but want to escalate their fight with Trump so now they are threatening to hold Barr in contempt.
The Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee announced Monday a plan to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for handing over special counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted report and its underlying evidence.
The committee announced it will consider a contempt citation against Barr on Wednesday; a majority vote for the resolution by the committee would send the measure to the House for consideration later in May.
Nadler launched its own investigation into potential allegations that President Donald Trump obstructed charges based on “public corruption and other abuses of power” by Trump.
Trump’s Department of Justice will never enforce this contempt citation.
But a court could grant Congress the ability to appoint their own prosecutor to enforce the measure and jail Attorney General Barr.
Democrats are going down this path because the Mueller Report was a political bust for them.
There was no evidence of collusion or charges of obstruction of justice.
Democrats need to invent a cover up so they can keep this “scandal” going and keep impeachment moving in a forward direction.
