Attorney General William Barr seemed to shrug off the Democratic effort to hold him in contempt when he spoke to an audience in Washington D.C. and joked that he may be on the receiving end of a “record.”
As BizPac Review reports, in Barr’s speech, he joked: “This must be a record of an Attorney General being proposed for contempt within a hundred days of taking office.”
From BizPac Review:
The House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Barr in contempt, claiming he failed to turn over the entire unredacted final report of Robert Mueller’s fruitless Russia collusion investigation.
Keep in mind that the version that was turned over to Democrats is 98% unredacted on obstruction of justice and 95% unredacted on collusion. As US Attorney General, Barr is obligated to redact grand jury testimony and top-secret intel that jeopardizes national security.
Members of Congress can view the unredacted Mueller report in a secure room at any time. They just can’t photograph or remove it from the room.
BizPac Review reports that Barr was previously praised by people on both sides of the aisle until his association with President Trump. Now, Democrats have repeatedly called for his firing and have voted to hold him in contempt.
Barr’s easy and joking attitude towards the liberal hostilities only fanned the flames of their anger and several people online
“Needless to say, Leftists didn’t react very well to Barr’s light-hearted quip about being held in contempt,” the report adds.
