Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder is the only sitting cabinet-level official to have ever been held in contempt by Congress.

He may soon have company, as Democrats are looking to turn up the heat on AG Bill Barr.

Here’s the scoop…

Oversight Cmte informs Barr & Commerce Sec Ross it “is scheduling a vote to hold you in contempt of Congress..relating to the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census.” No date for contempt is set. But cmte wants compliance with subpoena by June 6

The Oversight Cmte doesn’t assign a date to the contempt markup for Barr and Ross. So, at the earliest, such a contempt markup would happen next week. This also signals that the full House would probably consider the contempt citation(s) for Barr (and maybe others) in late June

House Oversight Committee announced that Chair Cummings is prepared to move to a contempt vote if DOJ and the Commerce Dept. don’t comply with subpoenas re: info about the 2020 Census by Thursday (once the committee votes, it would then move to the full House for a vote)

More on Barr, who is curently in Alaska – via Daily Caller:

Attorney General Bill Barr vowed to solve the “emergency” situation in western Alaska after traveling throughout the state and talking to locals about the high rates of crime, sexual violence, and the shortage of police.

Barr visited the Alaskan town of Napaskiak with Alaska Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski where he listened to pleas from villagers over the drastic situation their town faces. Napaskiak leaders pleaded with Barr for more federal help in combatting domestic violence, suicides, alcohol-related deaths and more.

After calling for President Trump’s impeachment, a pro-Trump state representative said he would challenge Republican Rep. Justin Amash for his seat in 2020.

Then, Amash doubled down.

He said wouldn’t rule out a third party run for president.

Now, Justin has set his sights on AG Bill Barr.

LOOK:

Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented key aspects of Mueller’s report and decisions in the investigation, which has helped further the president’s false narrative about the investigation.

Mueller’s report says he chose not to decide whether Trump broke the law because there’s an official DoJ opinion that indicting a sitting president is unconstitutional, and because of concerns about impacting the president’s ability to govern and pre-empting possible impeachment.

But, in fact, Mueller finds considerable evidence that several of Trump’s actions detailed in the report meet the elements of obstruction, and Mueller’s constitutional and prudential issues with indicting a sitting president would preclude indictment regardless of what he found.

Barr quotes Mueller saying the evidence didn’t establish that Trump was personally involved in crimes related to Russian election interference, and Barr then claims that Mueller found that fact relevant to whether the president had the intent to obstruct justice.

As a result of Barr’s March 24 letter, the public and Congress were misled. Mueller himself notes this in a March 27 letter to Barr, saying that Barr’s letter “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions.”

To “alleviate the misunderstandings that have arisen,” Mueller urged the release of the report’s introductions and executive summaries, which he had told Barr “accurately summarize [Mueller’s] Office’s work and conclusions.”

Barr was asked about reports “that members of [Mueller’s] team are frustrated…with the limited information included in your March 24th letter, that it does not adequately or accurately necessarily portray the report’s findings. Do you know what they’re referencing with that?”

In subsequent statements and testimony, Barr used further misrepresentations to help build the president’s false narrative that the investigation was unjustified.

But whether there’s enough evidence for a conviction of a specific crime which Mueller thought was appropriate to charge is a different and much higher standard than whether the people whom Mueller investigated had done anything worthy of investigation.

For instance, Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner took a meeting with a Russian lawyer whom Trump Jr. had been told worked for the Russian government and would provide documents to “incriminate Hillary,” as part of the Russian government’s “support for Mr. Trump.”

Barr says the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation and that Mueller “never sought” or “pushed” to get more from the president, but the report says Mueller unsuccessfully sought an interview with the president for over a year.

The president instead gave written answers to questions submitted by the special counsel. Those answers are often incomplete or unresponsive. Mueller found them “inadequate” and again sought to interview the president.

Barr has so far successfully used his position to sell the president’s false narrative to the American people. This will continue if those who have read the report do not start pushing back on his misrepresentations and share the truth.

Save conservative media!

Biden & Harris Refuse to Answer Questions From the Press — For Third Day In A Row (Video)

They must not have anything to say to the American people…

Donald Trump picked Mike Pence to be his vice presidential running mate in 2016 because the man was the chief executive of a state. Pence had gubernatorial experience, as well as a past in the lower chamber of Congress. Joe Biden, on the other hand, chose Kamala Harris to be his VP running mate because of the color of her skin. That’s literally the only reason. It was a purely political move, as the Biden camp knows they can call everyone racist if they say something negative about Harris – and the media will back them up. But Joe and Commiela had better be careful. If they continue to sidestep even liberal reporters, said liberal reporters are likely to become salty.

Bill Barr: There Will Be ‘Significant Developments’ In Durham Probe Before November Election

The Durham probe will leave yet another stain on Barack Obama’s record, showing how inept and corrupt the 44th president’s administration truly was. And it’s about time something got done. The left won’t pay much attention to this story, because they know they don’t want to know. You feel me?

Clinesmith was referred for potential prosecution by the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which conducted its own review of the Russia investigation. Specifically, the inspector general accused Clinesmith, though not by name, of altering an email about former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page to say that he was “not a source” for another government agency. Page has said he was a source for the CIA. The DOJ relied on that assertion as it submitted a third and final renewal application in 2017 to eavesdrop on Page under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Keep America Great!
