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.
