Nadler threatens Barr with contempt after hearing boycott

Kamala Harris Bill Barr Donald Trump

President Trump called out the 2020 presidential candidates on the Senate Judiciary Committee for their smears against the Attorney General, saying that they were seeking to score "political points".

"Biggest hearing you might have in your entire chairmanship, you can't bother, you're too lazy to learn the portfolio well enough to ask your own questions?"

"Democrats continue to deliver inaccurate statements and abusive politics, while demanding the attorney general either break the law or face contempt charges", Collins said in a statement Friday. "I think, I suspect, that they probably wanted more put out".

"Last night, The Washington Post reported that three days after Barr's four-page summary, Mueller wrote Barr a letter complaining that Barr "did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance" of Mueller's work", Colbert responded.

My take on the Mueller Report: Donald J. Trump is unfit to be president of the United States and should be impeached - whatever the final outcome.

Congressmember Nadler made the threat after William Barr refused to appear before his committee on Thursday.

"The Mueller report strongly stated that there was No Collusion with Russian Federation", he tweeted. "If he and his committee aren't capable of ... asking questions themselves and need to staff it out, then it seems like a pretty pathetic moment for the chairman of that committee", the Trump chief spokeswoman said during another brief North Lawn driveway appearance on Thursday.

Tune in to see the latest on the Barr hearings. The report also detailed a series of actions Mr Trump took to try to impede the investigation. Before Mueller filed his report, it was possible to imagine the president being brought to justice.

Graham's invitation came a few hours after U.S. House judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler offered Barr a last chance to hand over the full version of Mueller's report, before moving to hold the attorney general in contempt of Congress.

"I don't know whether Mueller supported my conclusion", Barr said, despite having received Mueller's letter two weeks earlier. She criticized Barr for the testimony he's previously given to Congress and accused him of lying to Congress - a crime.

Kerri Kupec, a Justice Department representative, called Pelosi's statement "reckless, irresponsible and false". Nadler says that in the past, courts have agreed to provide 6 (e) documents in the past.

The decision to avoid a determination on obstruction caught Barr by surprise, Justice Department officials said, and he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein resolved to reach a conclusion in place of Mueller's team.
