AG Barr Says Democrats Contempt Vote Was Part Of ‘Political Circus’

Attorney General William Barr said the House Judiciary Committees vote to hold him in contempt of Congress is part of a “political circus” in a Friday interview.

In an interview with Fox News, Barr was asked about the hearing, where Democrats voted to hold Barr in contempt of Congress for not giving the committee special counsel Robert Mueller’s full, unredacted report, Barr responded by saying “It’s part of the usual game, you know, political circus that’s being played out. It doesn’t surprise me,” he said. “I don’t feel threatened.”

Barr’s comments come after the committee, led by New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler, originally gave Barr a deadline of May 6 by 9 a.m. to turn in the full report with no redactions, which many Republicans believe would be dangerous due to the possibly sensitive material that could be leaked. Barr did not budge.

Before the vote, The White House said the president would use executive privilege to prevent Democratic lawmakers from getting the materials they’re requesting.

“Even in redacted form, the Special Counsel’s report offers disturbing evidence and analysis that President Trump engaged in obstruction of justice at the highest levels. Congress must see the full report and underlying evidence to determine how to best move forward with oversight, legislation, and other constitutional responsibilities,” Nadler said in a statement on May 6.

Democrats and cable news pundits have said the Mueller report is a cover-up.
