House Judiciary Committee votes to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress after marathon hearing

The left will never stop!

The House Judiciary Committee voted on Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for refusing to hand over an unredacted copy of Robert Mueller's final report on Russian interference.

Barr provided a partially redacted copy to the public and made multiple attempts to allow certain Democrats to view the report at the Justice Department, but they refused.

If the contempt charges advance, Barr could face lofty fines or even jail time.

The last attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress was Eric Holder in 2012 during the Obama administration, but the charges were ultimately tossed out.

WASHINGTON — The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, a severe penalty for refusing to comply with requests to hand over an unredacted copy of the special counsel Robert Mueller's final report in the Russia investigation and its underlying evidence.

The vote fell along party lines at 24 to 16, as Democrats move forward with a multitude of sprawling inquiries into President Donald Trump and his administration.

Contempt of Congress is a serious charge, which can later result in a criminal referral to a US attorney. Though rare, if sought all the way through, maximum penalties can include either a $100,000 fine or one year in jail.

The ONLY thing of contempt is the Contemptible Democrats on the Judiciary committee ! That entire interrogation of William Barr was a travesty! And I whole heartedly support him in NOT returning to such another FARCE and abuse!


 I watched that nauseating charade in its entirety, with BP rising , and was reminded of a Kangaroo Court with a Chair that was nothing other than a Braying Jacka$$ ! Indeed the entire Congress along with its leadership fits that description.
