William Barr just found out the bad news that could land him behind bars

Attorney General William Barr knows the Democrats painted a target on his back.

On Wednesday, Nancy Pelosi and her allies finally put their plan in motion to destroy Barr for good.

That’s when William Barr just found out the bad news that could land him behind bars.

After Chief Justice John Roberts’ stunning betrayal in the census case, Congressional Democrats stepped up their attacks on the administration by subpoenaing William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross for documents related to how the administration decided to put a citizenship question on the census.

Barr and Ross refused and the Democrats voted to hold Barr and Ross in criminal contempt.

The New York Times reports:

Wednesday’s contempt vote formally authorized the oversight panel to take Mr. Barr and Mr. Ross to federal court to seek judicial enforcement of subpoenas for the material in question. A lawsuit is expected in the coming weeks, and the administration has maintained it is on firm legal footing in its position.

It also leveled a stinging personal rebuke to Mr. Barr and Mr. Ross by formally referring them to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. There is no real risk the department will pursue the case — Mr. Barr is the head of the Justice Department — but only once before has Congress held in contempt a sitting member of a presidential cabinet: Eric H. Holder Jr., President Barack Obama’s first attorney general.

The Justice and Commerce Departments maintain that in this case they have sought to fully cooperate within legal bounds with the oversight committee’s requests. Democrats, they argue, are more interested in a political clash that can attract attention from the news media and embarrass the administration than they are in actual fact-finding and prematurely abandoned the negotiating table.

Democrats will now ask the Justice Department to criminally prosecute Barr and Ross for not turning over documents they had no legal obligation to turn over.

    He took it out because he was still legally a citizen of Indonesia. When his step father adopted him and then took him to Indonesia to live. Barrack Sottero (adopted father’s family name Sottero) gave up his American citizenship as a minor. There are no official documents after Barry came to age requesting his US Citizen be re-instated. Barry also has a bogus SSN which has become legalized by the time factor of not taking any action to prosecute and deport by the USA GOJ.

    The question should be why did Obama take the citizenship question off the last census. Could it be so illegals could vote? Women were put in jail that tried to vote before 1920. I don’t recall a constitutional amendment being put in that illegals could vote. Democrats know they can’t win fair.

  3. The Dems are scared of what’s about to happen to them so they want Barr out of the way so they can get away with what they are doing to President Trump. All of the Dems need to go to jail because they haven’t done a damn thing for this country except tear it down . I hope the AMERICAN PEOPLE wake up in 2020 and vote all the Dems out of office because they are not doing their job nothing. They should be going after Obama and his people their the ones that got us to where we are today NOT!!! PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    Glen100: Just what collusion? Nothing has been proven guilty. ALL OF IT has been proven false. I have something to give you so I would love to meet you in person. I have a handful of stones. Cast the first one. I am sure you are guilty of something unless, of course, your name is Jesus and you are perfect.

    colluding in its self is not a crime is not illegal so the question is mute. He has committing obstruction of justice on at least 2 occasions but since he controls the DOJ he can’t be indicted but he can be impeached on those charges. There are at lest 8 more occasions where he may have committed obstruction of justice
