Attorney General Bill Barr won’t put up with nonsense from Congressional Democrats.
He was the absolute perfect replacement for Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice.
On Tuesday night it was revealed that Barr will have President Trump block the unredacted Mueller report from being released if Rep. Jerry Nadler (D) and company hold him in contempt, as has been threatened.
NEW: DOJ says that Barr will ask President Trump to invoke executive privilege over the full Mueller report subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee if they move to hold him in contempt of Congress tomorrow.

Here’s the letter sent to Nadler:
Here’s a clip from Barr’s recent Senate hearing:
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) shut down Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono (D) during her line of questioning to AG Barr.
She didn’t have much of a comeback.
Deep down, Mazie knows Lindsey is right.
From Daily Wire:
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) interrupted and shut down Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) after she “slandered” Attorney General Bill Barr during his Wednesday hearing.
HIRONO: “Do you think it’s okay for a president to offer pardons to people who don’t testify against him, to threaten the family of someone who does? Is that okay?“
BARR: “When did he offer a pardon to somebody?“
HIRONO: “I think you know what I’m talking about. Please, Mr. Attorney General. Give us some credit for knowing what the hell’s going on around here.“
GRAHAM: “Not really. To this line of questioning. Listen, you slandered this man!“
HIRONO: “Mr. Chairman, I am done!“
GRAHAM: “You slandered this man from top to bottom!” Graham continued. “If you want more of this, you’re not going to get it. If you want to ask some questions, you can.“
HIRONO: “You certainly have your opinion. And I have mine.“

During his Thursday morning address to the media regarding the Mueller report, Barr shut down a reporter who implied he was “covering” for Trump.
It was a total boss move.
Barr: "I'm not sure what your basis is for saying I'm being generous to the President."
A reporter then brings up his use of the word "unprecedented."
"Is there another precedent for it," Barr asks.
"No," the reporter answers.
"OK so unprecedented is an accurate description." pic.twitter.com/5Mkso4BOCR

Barr consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and both concluded there was zero evidence against Trump.
