With Robert Mueller finding nothing to prove Russia collusion, Democrats are incensed.
They are targeting their anger at Trump’s Attorney General Bill Barr.
And they are about to do the unthinkable to him, and he’s furious.
Bill Barr is simply a messenger in Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion.
He is the one who handed Democrats the worst news possible, about how Mueller found nothing to prove collusion is real.
But because Mueller has been their hero for the past two years, they are going after the messenger, attacking Barr, claiming he is a puppet for President Trump and is keeping secrets about the report.
They want the entire report to go public, with no redactions, despite the fact that the redactions in the report are entirely necessary, and fully explained.
Doing so would be a violation of the law, considering that many of the redactions are there solely for privacy reasons.
But Democrats don’t care, and just voted to hold Barr in contempt of Congress over his refusal to release the full report.
The House Judiciary Committee overwhelmingly voted to move the resolution holding him in contempt forward, with every Democrat on the committee supporting the measure.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler explains his reasoning in a statement.
“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.
His statement is ridiculous and shows just how sorely the Democrats are taking this loss.
But President Trump isn’t just going to let them get away with this.
In response to the move, Trump is using Executive Privilege to ensure that Democrats don’t get their way.
The White House announced this in a statement where they blasted the “blatant abuse of power” by Nadler, adding that the president “has no other option than to make a protective assertion of executive privilege.”
If the redacted report is shown to members of Congress, it will almost certainly be leaked.
Democrats have proven time and time again that they are unable to view classified information without leaking it to their friends in the media.
Instead of Nadler going after those leakers, he is complaining when the Justice Department doesn’t trust them in response.
After all, Nadler could be a leaker himself considering just how vehemently anti-Trump he is.
The move to hold Barr in contempt of Congress is the most blatant example of Democrat hatred of Trump and his administration.
Barr is simply doing his job, while Democrats are demanding he violates the law just to get their way.
Do you think Democrats will leak the redacted portions of the Mueller report if they get it?
