Democrats Give Attorney General New Deadline, Threaten Contempt

  • Mueller’s letter to William Barr could be the ‘smoking gun’ Trump fears

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., has made one last "counteroffer" to Attorney General William Barr on an agreement for the unredacted report from special counsel Robert Mueller and the underlying evidence, CNN reports. Nadler narrowed his offer in a new letter to Barr on Friday, saying the committee would limit its request for underlying materials to those directly cited in the report.

"The committee is prepared to make every realistic effort to reach an accommodation with the department", Nadler wrote, according to Politico.

"Please inform the Committee if you would like to provide testimony regarding any misrepresentation by the Attorney General of the substance of that phone call", Graham said in a letter to Mueller. Trump wanted to know whether the semiretired Barr was "envisioning some role here", but Barr said he wasn't. The point of Mueller sending Barr a letter rather than calling him up was obviously to memorialize his objections to Barr's summary for the historical record.

And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the press Barr is a disgrace and a liar. "This is very, very serious", she said. "What more do we want?"

Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary for about five hours on Wednesday, but after Nadler attempted to change the terms of the testimony, including giving time to congressional legal staff to interrogate the attorney general, Barr canceled the scheduled Thursday appearance before the House. So if our wildly unpredictable and unstable president and his chaotic White House continue to spin out of control, moderate voters might turn to good old Uncle Joe to calm things down, if he's the Democrats' presidential candidate.

Barr "was really, really solid and did a great job", Trump said after Wednesday's hearing. "He doesn't dictate to us how we conduct hearings in Congress", he said.

They're rarely successful - though Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen was disbarred after he plead guilty to felony charges.

The Trump administration has made clear they're not going to play nice with Democrats' demands.

Tim Flanigan, a former assistant attorney general under Barr in the early 1990s, rejected the Democrats' depiction of Barr as Trump's defense lawyer. The result would be to block probes into "numerous and serious constitutional, conflict of interest, and ethical questions raised by the personal financial holdings" of the president.

Harris quizzed Barr whether Trump or anyone at the White House had asked him to investigate anyone - an exchange it detailed in its letter to Horowitz.

Mueller's report released to the public on April 18 said Trump had asked McGahn to fire Mueller as he was investigating suspected Russian interference in the 2016 USA election and possible coordination between the Trump campaign members and Moscow officials. Joe wants to cut the president down to size, and Bill Barr wants to protect the president from Democrats like Joe Biden. Others, including numerous 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls, have called on him to resign. And echoing Trump's own complaints, he suggested that the investigation may have illegally "spied" on the president's campaign. Democrats could be split once again as they were in 2016, when Bernie Sanders supporters accused Hillary Clinton of "stealing" their party's presidential nomination. "This is all. It's done", Trump told Fox News on Thursday.
