BLINK: Nadler Backs Off Push To Hold Barr In Contempt Of Congress

Rep. Jerrold Nader talks a tough game, but as things have gotten tough, he got going.

Nadler, the New York Democrat who heads the House Judiciary Committee, had been pushing for a vote on holding Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress. On Monday, he backed off that call.

“I am pleased to announce that the Department of Justice has agreed to begin complying with our committee’s subpoena by opening Robert Mueller’s most important files to us, providing us with key evidence that the Special Counsel used to assess whether the President and others obstructed justice or were engaged in other misconduct,” Nadler said in a statement. “These documents will allow us to perform our constitutional duties and decide how to respond to the allegations laid out against the President by the Special Counsel.”


The files from Mueller’s investigation that will be turned over concern whether President Trump obstructed justice, Fox News reported.

Nadler said both Democrats and Republicans will be allowed to view the files. In exchange, Nadler called off a contempt vote.

“Given our conversations with the Department, I will hold the criminal contempt process in abeyance for now,” he said. “We have agreed to allow the Department time to demonstrate compliance with this agreement. If the Department proceeds in good faith and we are able to obtain everything we need, then there will be no need to take further steps.”

Nadler said, though, that if “important information is held back,” the committee would have “no choice but to enforce our subpoena in court and consider other remedies.”

Last month, Nadler’s committee voted to hold Barr in contempt. The Justice Department had refused to hand over an unredacted version of Mueller’s report into alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia or the underlying documents, which total thousands of pages. Fox reported that the committee is still prepared “to move forward on a separate contempt-related resolution to enforce subpoenas for Barr and former White House Counsel Don McGahn. The measure is scheduled to be prepared late Monday in the House Rules Committee, for possible floor action on Tuesday.”

The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, said Nadler is doing the right thing.

“Today’s good faith provision from the administration further debunks claims that the White House is stonewalling Congress, which Chairman [Rep. Adam] Schiff’s successful negotiations with the Justice Department already showed,” Collins said, referring to a deal between the House Intelligence Committee and the Justice Department

Mueller testified last month that there was “not sufficient evidence to charge a conspiracy.”

Me thinks this is why Nadler blinked:

DOJ Letter Reveals Broad Scope of John Durham’s Spygate Investigation – “Much Larger Than Previously Known”

by Cristina Laila June 10, 2019



John Durham



A new letter from the Justice Department addressed to Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) reveals John Durham’s investigation into Spygate is much larger than previously known.


AG Barr’s review of the FISA abuses and surveillance against Trump’s campaign is “broad in scope and multifaceted,” according to the DOJ letter.

They're gonna have to re-open Alcatraz to hold all these corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.

With the current condition of Alcatraz and the costs associated with refurbishing the facility and other budgetary matters in consideration it will be more cost effective and efficient to build an additional compliment of 24 gallows at various federal prison yards around the country to handle the expected influx of treasonous bastards.

Nah. I like the idea of Alcatraz. Who sez it needs to be refurbished? Just pull up to the dock, unload the TB's and leave. They can scavenge sea bird nests and scrape limpets off the rocks. Anyone that wants to try the swim is welcome to attempt it. Of course, if they are found, they go back again.

Total cost would be the gas for the ferry.

Another option would be to air drop them onto Alcatraz...

No need for parachutes. Just drop them from 10K feet or so and let gravity do its thing...

If the bombadier is off on its targeting and they drop into the bay...well...the sharks gotta eat too...

Why spend the time to unload them on the island when you can just chum the waters while cruising toward Alcatraz then dump the treasonous bastards for the sharks? Save lots of money all around and help the environment to make the libtards happy!

Since it has been under the guise of the U.S. Park Service and Public tours can be made almost daily. All it would take is to sign transfer rights back to DOJ/BOP and start shipping the miscreants in. Basic water and sewer works still work, plenty of available rooms of double or single occupancy ( Cells), rehab Food service or serve MREs, Get Gov. Surplus mattresses from the military ( BOP does this today nationwide). Place a guard patrol for the perimeter w/ search and High Mast lights, and let the prisoners run their own asylum as they do in D.C. This time THEY will have to do the work themselves to survive. JMH and Experienced Opinion, YMMV
