Let me ask you a question – since Robert Mueller had served as the Assistant Attorney General, Acting Deputy Attorney General and US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts and the Northern District of California, don’t you think that he knew that what he discovered in his investigation warranted obstruction of justice charges against President Trump?
After placing their trust in Mueller for nearly two years, only to be disappointed by the outcome, Democrats are now livid that Attorney General William Barr agreed with Mueller that there was insufficient evidence to charge Trump with obstruction of justice.
Democrats have now turned their anger and attacks to Barr and after trying to dictate the terms of his appearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Barr is threatening to refuse to show up, only angering Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) even more.
Fox News – Barr spars with Nadler, threatens to skip testimony after dispute over hearing format – Attorney General Bill Barr will be a no-show at a long-awaited hearing on Thursday before the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee based on current negotiations over his appearance, a source on the committee told Fox News on Sunday.

The emerging spat comes after Barr has endured withering attacks from congressional Democrats, who have outright accused him of sacrificing his integrity to appease President Trump. Barr shepherded the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report in recent weeks, and he has largely become a punching bag for progressives frustrated that Mueller’s probe found no evidence to back up claims that the Trump team colluded with Russians.
Fox News has learned that Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., wants to have Judiciary Committee staff — rather than members of Congress — question Barr on his handling of Mueller’s report. But DOJ officials say members should conduct the inquiry…
The reaction to Barr by Nadler and other Democrats is typical of their party policy of double standards.
It was their own warrior – Mueller – who determined there was not enough evidence to charge Trump, in the first place, but you don’t hear Nadler or any other Democrat criticizing Mueller, do you?
It’s when Barr agrees with Mueller that Democrats turn on him and call him Trump’s paid public defender.
