    House Democrats to hold contempt vote Wednesday after Barr misses deadline

    Source: Washington Post





    Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee said they will vote Wednesday on whether to hold Attorney General William P. Barr in contempt of Congress after Barr missed a deadline to produce a complete version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's report.

    The panel had set a deadline of 9 a.m. Monday for Barr to provide the unredacted version of Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. It announced the planned vote in a statement Monday.

    "Although the Committee has attempted to engage in accommodations with Attorney General Barr for several months, it can no longer afford to delay, and must resort to contempt proceedings," reads the text of a contempt report released by Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.). "The Committee urgently requires access to the full, unredacted Mueller Report and to the investigatory and evidentiary materials cited in the Report."

    Barr had released a redacted version on April 18, but Democrats said that was insufficient and have been seeking the full report and the underlying evidence. In response to a committee subpoena, the Justice Department said last week that it was "unable to provide" Mueller's investigative files, citing a "compelling need to protect the autonomy and effectiveness of its investigations."

    Full headline: House Democrats to hold contempt vote Wednesday after Barr misses deadline to provide complete Mueller report

    Original article and headline -

    Barr misses House Democrats' deadline to provide complete Mueller report; Judiciary panel to move ahead on holding him in contempt

    By Washington Post Staff
    May 6 at 9:48 AM

    The House Judiciary Committee had set a deadline of 9 a.m. on Monday for the unredacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Attorney General William P. Barr had released a redacted version on April 18, but Democrats said that was insufficient and have been seeking the full report and the underlying evidence.

    The committee said in a statement that it would meet on Wednesday to vote on holding Barr in contempt of Congress.

    This is a developing story. It will be updated.

    So. Democrats are going to hold Barr in contempt.............because he's upholding a law....the DEMOCRATS passed.....that they NOW DO NOT AGREE WITH. LOL.

    Good luck with that. Republicans need to constantly inform people of this.

    6. With all due respect to Congress

    A contempt citation and a $2 will get you a cup of coffee.

    It means absolutely nothing to Barr or this administration or the trump Justice Dept.

    Even if they pass a criminal contempt citation, it's up to the Justice Dept to enforce it and it has refused to do so lately.
    Even if it did, trump could fire any deputy AD that took the case to a grand jury.

    The AG can be impeached. The contempt can be one of the articles of impeachment.
    He clearly lied to Congress. Even if the Senate won't convict, there would be little doubt it would seem partisan as hell. Because, again, Barr has clearly been lying.
    Jack*sses don't like it that THEY no longer control the DOJ and THEIR side might get some of that 'equality under the law' that Obama, Hillary and their lackeys were protecting them from. They're intent on getting rid of Barr before he's able to investigate their side.

    If i'm not mistaken, a less redacted version has been made available for members of congress to view in a room but only 2 have elected to view it.

    Just 2 lawmakers have seen less-redacted Mueller report

    The Dems who were allowed to view it because they had the necessary security clearance refused to do so.

    This is just political theater to get the headline readers to think that AG Barr is hiding something, rather than actually upholding the law by restricting the release of protected information.
