House democrats voted along party lines yesterday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt.
They have manufactured some make-believe constitutional crisis, based on lies! Barr cannot release the full report without breaking the law, and they know it, but democrats assume their votes are too clueless to realize it.
The real reason democrats are so determined to ruin Barr is because he’s investigating multiple crimes carried out by their party.

Let’s all remember that every step of what has happened with Jabba The Nadler’s committee this year was all pre-planned way back in November, just days after the election.
That was when Sr. Editor at The Federalist Mollie Hemingway happened to be sitting across the aisle on an Amtrak train from Jabba, and overheard him having a loud telephone conversation in which he bragged about his and Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s plans to do everything you’ve seen taking place this year.
She wrote this prescient piece on November 7, yet all of her “colleagues” in the fake news media continue to pretend this is all taking place organically, because the Democrats just can’t help doing what they’re doing because of the Orange Man Bad in the White House.
None of this is organic. Never forget that everything today’s Democrats do is Kabuki theater designed to deceive their shamefully dimwitted and uninformed voter base.
They believe most Americans are hopelessly dense, clueless and uninformed of actual facts, and believe they can just lie to them with impunity as a means of obtaining and maintaining political power. Sadly, they are often correct.
It’s also important to remember these things as well:
- Barr has already release about 95% of the Mueller Report to the public – Democrats say this is not enough;
- Barr has already made 98% of the Mueller Report available for Democrat members of congress to view in a secure room without the ability to make copies of it that they could leak to the press. Not one Democrat has taken advantage of viewing it in the 3 weeks that it’s been available;
- Barr legally cannot make 100% available to the public because some of the material in the Report is protected grand jury information. He knows if he allows skunks and snakes like Jabba and Adam Schiff and Eric Swallwell to have the full report, the full report will appear on the front page of the New York Times and the Washington Post the next morning;
- The courts have consistently held that grand jury information must be withheld from the public in order to protect the rights of persons who offered testimony but were not pursued by said grand juries. In pursuing this information for the purpose of leaking it to the fake news media, congressional Democrats are actively attempting to harm U.S. citizens who are innocent of any crime.
That’s the reality of this silly situation, which has been intentionally and completely artificially constructed out of whole cloth by despicable congressional Democrats and their even more-despicable buddies in the news media.
Of course, by going down this particular road they have essentially left President Donald Trump with no choice but to exercise his right to executive privilege over not just the Mueller Report, but over any and all documents related to it. This is a right the President could have exercised throughout the abusive Mueller Witch Hunt, but chose not to do so in the name of cooperating with the Chief of the American Gestapo.
That the President now feels the need to exercise that right as it relates to the House of Representatives tells us exactly how abusive the despicable Democrats have become in their desperate effort to smear Attorney General William Barr.
One final reminder: The Democrats and their media toadies are desperate to smear Barr in the public consciousness because Barr has repeatedly promised to get to the bottom of the Obama Administration’s massive spying activities targeted at the Trump Campaign throughout 2016. They all know that if he succeeds in that quest, people are going to prison.
So this is not just a fight for raw political power: For many of these despicable people, it is a fight for survival. These are the reasons the Democrat Party is basically holding our nation hostage.
Breitbart reported on the Department of Justice outrage over this lie:
The Department of Justice reacted defiantly to Democrats’ vote on the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to recommend that Attorney General William Barr be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to release the full and underrated report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into “Russian collusion” during the 2016 election.
The Department of Justice was defiant, releasing a statement after the contempt vote that insisted: “The Attorney General could not comply with the House Judiciary Committee’s subpoena without violating the law … “Chairman Nadler’s actions have prematurely terminated the accommodation process and forced the President to assert executive privilege to preserve the status quo. No one, including Chairman Nadler and his Committee, will force the Department of Justice to break the law.”

The committee vote was 24-16 on straight party lines.
During the hearing before the vote, Republicans supported the attorney general, with Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) reading Nadler his own quotes from the 1990s, when he argued against the release of the full report of Independent Counsel Kenneth Star after his investigation into President Bill Clinton.
The contempt issue will now move to the full House of Representatives for a decision.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) raised the prospect of using the jail in the U.S. Capitol to punish Trump administration officials for contempt, but as a criminal matter the contempt citation faces dim prospects: the DOJ itself would have to consider any congressional referral to follow up a contempt vote with criminal prosecution of the attorney general.
How much contempt will the American people continue to put up with from the left? They consider us ignorant, ill-informed idiots who will swallow whatever whopper they decide to construct!
The report is there! They refuse to act.
