Dems Retaliate Against Trump For Exercising His Executive Privilege
On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee voted to push forward a resolution to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress for not complying with a subpoena to deliver an unredacted version of the Mueller report.
All this is doing is causing more strife between the two parties.
Legally, Barr didn't even have to release the report, but he did it anyway. Also, legally he cannot release an unredacted version. This is going to go absolutely nowhere for the Democrats.
According to ABC News,
The moves marked an escalation in tensions between Democrats and the Trump administration, and set up a likely battle in the courts as Democrats work to review Mueller's conclusions.
“There can be no higher stakes than this attempt to take all power away from Congress and away from the American people. We are in a constitutional crisis,” Nadler said following the committee action.
The resolution, passed after more than six hours of sharp debate, could receive a vote on the House floor in the coming weeks.
"Faced with Chairman Nadler’s blatant abuse of power, and at the Attorney General’s request, the President has no other option than to make a protective assertion of executive privilege," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The whole thing is going to prove unfruitful, just like every single thing the Democrats ever do.
This group is seriously the biggest bunch of whining babies I've seen in my life except for the snowflakes you frequently see who are looking for something to get offended over.
President Trump is doing what the American people want. Not what Democrats want, not what Republicans want, what the majority of the American people. Not everybody wants the same thing, but in this country, the majority rules like it or not. Nowadays, the majority of the country favors a conservative platform on politics.
So the Democrats can be upset that they're not getting their way, but they've only got themselves to blame. Stop being on the wrong side of history.
