BREAKING NEWS: House Judiciary Committee Votes to Hold the Attorney General ‘In Contempt of Congress
The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday afternoon to hold Attorney General William Barr ‘In Contempt of Congress’ over his refusal to comply with Democrats’ demands regarding the final Mueller report.
The vote passed among Committee members 24-16 along party lines.
“The Trump administration, and its enablers, may brazenly try to cover up the misdeeds uncovered by the special counsel,” said chair Jerrold Nadler, “but on this committee we will represent the American people and ensure the truth is known.”
“Our fight is not just about the Mueller report — although we must have access to the Mueller report,” Nadler said. “Our fight is about defending the rights of Congress, as an independent branch, to hold the president accountable.”
