The House Judiciary Committee will vote Wednesday on whether to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler says he is fighting to access the full version of the Mueller report, which he outlined in his letter to Barr Friday.
Barr’s requests as outlined in the letter:
- Nadler requests that the Department reconsider its refusal to allow all Members of Congress and appropriate staff to view redacted portions of the report in a secure location, not including the grand jury material.
- Nadler asks that the Department work jointly with Congress to seek a court order to provide grand jury material.
- For the production of underlying documents, Nadler offers to prioritize those materials specifically cited in the report.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo that the Democrats’ latest move to take down Barr is ‘the real obstruction of justice.’
Nadler gave Barr until 9 a.m. Monday to comply with his request for the complete and unredacted Mueller report. Now, the committee will vote on a resolution that states, “William P. Barr, the Attorney General of the United States, shall be found to be in contempt of Congress for failure to comply with a congressional subpoena.”
