William Barr is fuming after Democrats finally did the unthinkable

Democrats have been gunning for William Barr since the day Trump nominated him for Attorney General.

Now they are really ramping things up.

And William Barr is furious after Democrats finally succeeded in doing in the unthinkable.

William Barr is simply trying to do his job.

One of his first actions after becoming Attorney General was to release the findings of Robert Mueller’s report on Russia collusion.

Barr released the report with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — who started the investigation — standing right behind him.

But Democrats weren’t going to tolerate Barr accurately stating Mueller found no evidence of collusion.

Mueller himself says Barr acted in good faith.

But Democrats disagree, and are demanding documents that would be illegal for Barr to turn over.

Then, for refusing to break the law, Democrats succeeded in holding both William Barr, and former White House counsel Don McGahn, in contempt of Congress.

The Daily Caller reports:

The House of Representatives voted Tuesday to hold Bill Barr and Don McGahn in contempt of Congress.

Both President Donald Trump’s attorney general and former White House counsel defied subpoenas from the House Judiciary Committee, and congressional Democrats followed through on threats to hold them in contempt. The lower chamber voted in favor of H. Res. 430 by a margin of 229-191 in what was a party line vote.

Trump administration officials have come under fire for their handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which concluded that there was no evidence that the president’s campaign colluded with the Russian government. Mueller declined to weigh in on the possibility that Trump obstructed justice over the course of his investigation.

The vote was down party lines because contempt charges are a completely politically motivated attack, with no real substance.

Barr has been doing his job, and the only reason Democrats hate him so much is because he works for the people, and not the Deep State trying to take down the president.

He told the truth, and the truth is the opposite of what Democrats want.

The only thing they want is for President Trump to be destroyed, whether it is for a legitimate reason or not.

    You are way off in regards to Hillary’s “body count” way off. To date, she is responsible for more than 238 murders of innocent people. Mysterious suicides, where a man’s body was found decapitated and ruled a suicide, was about to testify on the Clinton’s corruption. another man about to show prosecutors how to retrieve those 30,000 deleted emails was found with a bag tied around his head hanging in a Florida hotel room and hundreds of other stories just like that. Her evil murdering hitmen were directed at her orders to kill.

    & because he IS 0ne of ‘them’

  5. Timothy O'Connell says:

    Incorrect. He found evidence of obstruction, but, when you think about it, obstruction of what? An investigation into a non-crime. Is that really obstruction of justice? Or just Trump fighting to save his Presidency against a concerted and sustained attack by the forces of the left and the establishment.

  6. ONTIME says:

    Now is the time to stick a finger in the eye of the left and their harping on the Muller Report…4 investigations have provided confirmation the POTUS is not guilty of obstruction or collusion or any conspiracy…Since the left wants to recall all the witnesses and cost the taxpayers and the defendants even more money for them to play the game of politic, all those being ask to again testify should claim the 5th under the cover of no change in any previous testimony and nothing new to add….object lessons work wonders when properly applied….

    Great question but then being a Democrat will explain the difference it is permissible for them.

  11. chief1937 says:

    Don’t know where you got your information but what I have read Mueller found no collusion. Request you give reference to where he found collusion. The only thing I have seen is an insinuation of possible obstruction but not enough evidence to charge. One of us are in error.

    President Barack Obama discarded eight years of controversies surrounding his administration, including the targeting of conservative groups, veterans lacking health care, the administration’s response to a terrorist attack weeks before the 2012 election, and a botched gun sting.

    During a Democratic fundraising event in San Diego Sunday, Obama attacked Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the former chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, for the various investigations into the administration.

    “Here’s a guy who called my administration perhaps the most corrupt in history, despite the fact that actually, we have not had a major scandal in my administration,” Obama told Democratic donors.

    The tactics of any congressional oversight chairman could be a matter of debate, as could the definition of “scandal” and, if it is a scandal, whether it’s a “major” one.

    “We have not had a major scandal in my administration,” @Potus says.

    What isn’t debatable is that the Obama administration has experienced numerous controversies that have led to administration officials resigning from office, being held in contempt of Congress, the establishment of a select investigative House committee and several Justice Department investigations.

    Without offering comment for this story, a senior White House official referenced several commentators that have noted Obama did not have a significant scandal in comparison to previous presidents. A recent USA Today editorial noted that Obama has had a largely “personally scandal-free presence in the White House.”

    Here’s a list of nine controversies that Obama didn’t mention at the Democratic fundraiser, but that nevertheless leave many unanswered questions.

    1.) IRS Targeting Scandal

    In 2013, Lois Lerner, former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations division, admitted that officials in the IRS’ Cincinnati office acted improperly.

    The move was meant to preempt the release of a Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which found a sustained targeting of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

    Lerner asserted her innocence in the matter before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, then invoked her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination to avoid cross-examination of her claims. The House voted to find her in contempt of Congress.

    Justice Department prosecutor Barbara Bosserman, who had donated $6,750 to Obama’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee from 2004 to 2012, investigated the matter and declined to bring up charges.

    House investigators did not find a direct link from the White House to the IRS scandal.

    The Justice Department was aware of the matter two years before Congress and took no action, according to documents obtained by the government watchdog group Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act.

    2.) VA Waiting List

    The Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general first noted the waiting list problem at a Phoenix clinic in 2014 and then found other clinics with similar problems. Veterans were placed on phony waiting lists, and some even died while waiting for care. VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned from his position.

    Last year, in another follow-up report, the inspector general found about 800,000 records and applications delayed in the VA system, and more than 300,000 might have died.

    Earlier this month, another inspector general report found that at the Phoenix clinic, where the controversy was first discovered, another 200 veterans died while waiting for care on the waiting list and at least one could have been saved had he received proper care on a timelier basis.

    Both Republicans and Democrats expressed outrage over the matter.

    3.) GSA Spending Spree

    In 2012, Martha N. Johnson, the administrator of the General Services Administration, resigned after the federal procurement agency was engulfed in a controversy. The department was accused of allowing excessive spending on travel and conferences for the agency and employees.

    Johnson admitted in her resignation letter that “taxpayer dollars were squandered.”

    Some of the spending included a Las Vegas trip where employees had a $31,000 reception that included a clown mind reader.

    The organizer of the event, GSA regional commissioner Jeffrey Neely, was photographed in a Las Vegas hotel bathtub with a wine glass. Neely was indicted on three counts of making false claims, one count of using false documents, and one count of making false statements. He was later sentenced to three months in prison.

    4.) Attack on the Benghazi Compound

    On Sept. 11, 2012, weeks before a presidential election, terrorists attacked U.S. government facilities in Benghazi, Libya. Obama administration officials initially blamed this attack on a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim YouTube video that spun out of control.

    Late that night, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released a statement that said: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet.”

    The following weekend, then-United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice went on several Sunday morning news programs to blame the video for provoking the attack.

    However, the administration eventually conceded the incident was a terrorist attack. Obama had been campaigning on having decimated al-Qaeda and killing Osama bin Laden. So a terrorist attack interfered with the campaign narrative that the event was sparked by a protest.

    Before a Senate panel in January 2013, Clinton famously said, “What difference at this point does it make,” whether the attack was prompted by a terrorist or an out-of-control protest.

    In 2014, then-House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, named a House select committee to investigate the Benghazi incident. The committee issued its final report in July, which found no conclusive cover up by the administration.

    5.) Clinton Emails

    It was the Benghazi committee that first discovered that before, during, and after her time as secretary of state, Clinton maintained a private email server. This prompted the FBI to investigate questions of whether Clinton violated the law in terms of storing classified information.

    In July, FBI Director James Comey announced the investigation was completed and concluded that Clinton and her staff had been “extremely careless.” However, he determined that there was no intent to put classified national security information in danger and would not warrant prosecution.

    During her testimony, Clinton told the House Benghazi committee, “There was nothing marked classified on my emails, either sent or received.”

    House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said he would ask the FBI to investigate whether Clinton lied to Congress.

    6.) Fast and Furious Gun Walking

    Operation Fast and Furious was a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives program, meant to be a sting operation. It allowed about 2,000 guns to flow to Mexican drug trafficking organizations under federal supervision before authorities lost control of the guns.

    Fast and Furious began in the fall of 2009 and was halted in December 2010 after two of the guns from the operation were found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in Arizona.

    After more than a year of the Justice Department failing to provide documents to the House Oversight Committee, 17 House Democrats joined nearly all House Republicans to find Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

    In June, documents showed that 69 people were killed by lost guns the ATF allowed to flow into the country, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch.

    7.) Solyndra Subsidies

    The Energy Department provided a $535 million loan guarantee to the politically connected solar panel firm Solyndra as part of the 2009 stimulus bill. Not long after building its factory, the California firm filed for bankruptcy protection and an FBI investigation ensued. The company did not find a buyer and eventually closed down.

    Subsequent other subsidized green energy companies also collapsed.

    8.) DOJ and the New Black Panther Party

    On Election Day 2008, hours before Obama was first elected, two members of the New Black Panther Party stood outside the door of a polling place in Philadelphia in paramilitary outfits. One of the men was carrying a nightstick. The two men were caught on video seemingly intimidating voters.

    While George W. Bush was still president, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party, which the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center classifies as a hate group. However, by May of 2009, the Obama administration’s Department of Justice and Holder, then-attorney general, dropped the case.

    9.) A Job for Sestak

    In 2010, Rep. Joe Sestak, who was challenging Sen. Arlen Specter in a Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary, said that the Obama administration had offered him a job to dissuade him from entering the race.

    Obama had endorsed Specter, who had recently switched allegiance from the Republican to the Democrat Party during the early months of Obama’s presidency. The White House did not answer questions on the matter for several months.

    Issa, then-ranking member of the House oversight panel, suggested such an offer could be illegal. Specter also pressed Sestak to answer more questions about the alleged offer.

    After Sestak defeated Specter for the nomination, White House counsel Robert Bauer released a memo asserting that nothing improper occurred and that Obama’s offer was to serve on an unpaid presidential advisory board that would allow him to continue to serve in the House.

    James; Name the Statute that codifies ‘Collusion’, please. Where can we find that law? Name someone, anyone who has been charged, tried, or convicted of this crime. Please give an example of any Administration that has not ‘Colluded’ with all foreign governments. It seems that you have a narrow view if you believe that normal contact with foreign Nations is somehow a crime when Trump does this, but not when Barack Obama did it continuously.
    It might be that on ‘obstruction’; you have a President, wrongly accused of something he didn’t do or ordered to be done and he speaks to defend himself. That is not obstruction. The U.S. President gets to speak in his own defense. With all of the $$ and professional investigators thrown at Trump not finding a speck of any evidence, my conclusion is that the evidence simply does not exist

    Carole: AMEN!!!

  15. Linda M. says:

    Clyde: Why can’t these Democrats see the TRUTH? They are so blinded to the fact Trump won, even with their deceptive practices having illegals to vote for Clinton, they can not be reasoned with! They remind me of a bunch of spoiled children throwing temper tantrums and will keep denying that Mueller found no collusion. Now they are attacking Barr from doing his job? Outrageous!! This country is being ripped apart out of stupidity and childishness caused by the Democrats!!

  16. Mann says:

    Marcus great reply!! That guy is just like the rest of the Dumacrats. What’s it going to take to get nuts like him to wake up. God bless have a great one.

  17. Clyde says:

    James what was Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch? If I was any of these members of congress I’d be very careful in how far you push the head of the nations DOJ. I know I’d be looking into Pelosi, Ohmar, AOC, Nadler, Cummings and his wife, Lee, and many others. If Mueller had a sliver of evidence on Trump he would of recommended prosecuting. Be patient James we all will see the masterminds of the fake dossier (collusion theorists) being indicted, I hope your stocked up on crayons and coloring books, dust of that pu$$y hat because you’ll be needing it.
