  • Rep. Nadler Sets Vote To Hold Barr in Contempt

House judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler on Monday scheduled a vote Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress after Barr failed to comply with a deadline to provide Special Counsel Robert Mueller's full report on his Russian Federation probe.

The House Judiciary Committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY, confirmed last week that the committee was "firming up the date". "They will testify. The American people deserve the truth", said Schiff, who has previously stated that he would like Mueller to appear before his panel.

Cicilline called the agreement "tentative", he said, because "the representative for the Special Counsel has" signed off on the scheduled hearing but that "until the day comes, we never have an absolute guarantee".

The attorney general, who was appointed by the president, also missed a deadline last week to release an uncensored version of the report.

Cicilline said Sunday that the Trump administration has shown no sign that its pattern of transparency will end where Mueller's work begins. Let's start with conservative attorney and Trump critic George Conway, who just so happens to be the husband of Trump's counselor and former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.

Democrats have been working to hear directly from Mueller after Attorney General William Barr came under fire for mischaracterizing parts of the Mueller report, and a letter surfaced late last week suggesting Barr had misled Congress.

Although Mueller's conclusions about "collusion" aren't really in question, Democrats have said they intend to re-run Mueller's 22-month deep dive into whether Trump aides communicated and coordinated with Russian officials looking to make an impact on the 2016 presidential election.

Breakthrough in crunch Labour and Tory Brexit talks on a knife edge
International Development Secretary Rory Stewart reinforced the Prime Minister's message, saying the ball was in Mr Corbyn's court.

The Department of Justice announced last week that it would not comply with Democrats' request for the full unredacted report and the underlying evidence on the grounds that it amounts to unconstitutional congressional overreach.

"Why would the Democrats in Congress now need Robert Mueller to testify".

Following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, the United States president slammed his political rivals for starting "the Witch hunt" against him and his supporters in the first place, stressing that the probe had found no collusion with a foreign power and no obstruction of justice.

Barr is still Mueller's boss at the Justice Department and could presumably block him from testifying. They could also open impeachment proceedings against Trump, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said she's not interested in doing that, for now.

"Barr's testimony alone - created to protect Trump - isn't going to cut it".

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., responded to Trump with his own tweet. Now he's trying to silence Mueller. "Mueller must testify publicly before Congress".
