William Barr may end up in prison for this insane reason
Democrats and the media are still crying about a cover up surrounding Attorney General William Barr’s handling of the Mueller Report.
They believe he is concealing information in the report that will prove Donald Trump guilty of Russian collusion and obstruction of justice.
And now William Barr may end up in prison for this insane reason.
Attorney General William Barr refused the Democrats’ demand that he violate the law by releasing an unredacted version of the Mueller report that contained secret grand jury information.
Democrats rejected all compromise offers and so the President asserted executive privilege over the report.
In response, the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold William Barr in contempt of Congress.
The Daily Caller reports:
Nadler scheduled the congressional contempt vote for Wednesday at 10 a.m. All Democrats present voted to advance the vote to hold Barr in contempt of Congress in the procedural vote Wednesday morning. The committee later voted along party lines, with 24 Democrats voting yes for Barr to be held in contempt of Congress. No Republicans joined.
Before the vote, The White House said the president would use executive privilege to prevent Democratic lawmakers from getting the materials they’re requesting.
“Even in redacted form, the Special Counsel’s report offers disturbing evidence and analysis that President Trump engaged in obstruction of justice at the highest levels. Congress must see the full report and underlying evidence to determine how to best move forward with oversight, legislation, and other constitutional responsibilities,” Nadler said in a statement Monday.
After the vote, Pelosi joked with reporters about how there was a little jail beneath the capitol.
Some Democrats and media want Pelosi to direct the House Sergeant at Arms to storm into the Department of Justice and arrest the Attorney General.
Congress has not used this power since the 1920s, but Democrats and the media so hate President Trump that they believe nothing is out of bounds.
