Bernie Throws Support Behind 'Contempt' Charge for AG Barr

Linkedin Share

Even after President Trump has done his best to convey the finality of the Mueller report’s aftermath, democrats have yet to give up the ghost.

Much of the drama this week surrounding Attorney General Bill Barr and his treatment of the Mueller report.

According to Barr and the Deportment of Justice, the report has been processed and disseminated, with the nation’s top cops deciding that they won’t be filing any further charges in the matter.

Congress, who has worked hard to remind the nation that they are a co-equal branch of government this week, aren’t taking Barr at his word, and were particularly irked by the Attorney General’s refusal to attend a second day of public testimony on Thursday.

The left’s latest attempts to throw a wrench in the Trump administration could be coming Monday, as democratic leaders are considering holding Barr in contempt.

This is something that 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders sees no problem with.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said at a campaign stop in Iowa on Saturday that he would vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt if he were in the House.

“We had an attorney general of the United States who refused to come to a hearing that the House Judiciary Committee called,” Sanders said at a town hall in Perry, Iowa.

“If I were a member of the House, I would vote to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt,” he added. “He was asked to testify, he refused to testify, he refused to provide the information that the House wanted, and that is unacceptable.”

This isn’t the wildest idea that Bernie Sanders has espoused in recent days, however.

The independent senator from Vermont recently voiced his support for allowing incarcerated felons to vote – a move that would allow violent and unrepentant criminals to help decide our elections.
