House Democrats officially introduce contempt resolution for Barr, McGahn
By Olivia Beavers and Morgan Chalfant - 06/06/19 02:08 PM EDT

House Democrats have officially introduced a resolution to hold Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with congressional subpoenas.

The contempt resolution allows House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) to go to court to seek civil enforcement of the subpoena for Barr to turn over special counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted report and underlying evidence, as well as for McGahn to provide documents and public testimony.

The resolution also gives any committee chair the rare power to go to federal court to seek civil enforcement of subpoenas, both current and future orders, so long as they are granted approval by the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group.

Their contempt antics don't hold a candle to the contempt I and most Americans have for Congress.

The circus just keeps on rolling.

How can the House hold an Attorney General in contempt for refusing to violate Federal Law by releasing grand jury testimony?
