The Democrat war against William Barr is reaching a fever pitch.
They are refusing to give up in their fight to take him down.
But now they are regretting attacking William Barr after Trump did one thing.
William Barr is enemy number two at the current moment for the Democrat Party.
Since they can’t take down Trump, who is their main enemy, they are focusing on his Attorney General.
Barr is simply trying to do his job, which even Robert Mueller agrees with.
Following the release of Robert Mueller’s report into Russia collusion, Barr is the official who delivered the news that Trump did not collude with Russians.
And Democrats are still furious about that.
While most of America is grateful that the witch hunt is over, and that the President is a legitimate President, Democrats are angry.
They were counting on Robert Mueller’s report to be the smoking gun to finally impeach President Trump.
And they still aren’t giving up on that hope.
The House Judiciary Committee is pushing forward with demands for more information about the report, including the full unredacted report.
But the redactions in the report are simply to comply with the law, and if Barr releases them, he is violating the law.
Despite that fact, Democrats just voted to hold Barr in contempt.
The vote is along party lines, with only one Republican, Rep. Justin Amash voting in favor.
But their vote is not going to do a thing.
While contempt is something that can get somebody thrown in jail, President Trump is not going to allow that to happen.
Barr already knows that fact, and even jokingly asked Nancy Pelosi if she brought her handcuffs during a recent conversation.
Trump is able to protect Barr, and the documents Democrats seek through executive privilege.
Executive privilege allows the president to resist certain subpoenas.
It is a seldom-used privilege that only comes up in rare situations.
But in this case, Democrats are trying to get their hands on information that would be a crime for the Justice Department to release.
So it makes perfect sense for President Trump to assert his authority over subpoenas demanding that information.
If Democrats would just accept that fact, and realize that Barr is simply trying to avoid legal trouble, this would never have to happen.
But Democrats are insistent, and threatening contempt votes to force Barr to violate the law.
In reality, Democrats are just giving the media ammo to attack Barr and Trump.
Many news consumers don’t actually look for the facts.
And if the media is simply saying that Barr is withholding documents, and Democrats are holding him in contempt over it, it looks bad for the Trump Administration.
That is their only reason for taking such drastic measures.
But it is now beginning to backfire for the Democrats.
Americans have seen the Mueller report, and it makes clear Trump did nothing wrong.
The majority of Americans accept that, according to polling.
But Democrats are refusing to face reality.
