Those pretty much sum up the reaction of Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Chair of House Judiciary Committee, after Attorney General William Barr refused to appear before the committee.
The Washington Post had set the stage for a full-fledged old-fashioned hot-seat interrogation by House Democrats by releasing a letter from Robert Mueller and claiming it said something different than what it really said.
Knowing that the terms of the House testimony were being unfairly set and controlled by Democrats who already expressed their hatred of President Trump and outrage against Barr for his response to the Mueller report, Barr was right in refusing to appear under those terms.

Fox News – Nadler slams Barr’s decision to skip House hearing, threatens contempt citation: ‘He is terrified’ – The House Judiciary Committee has been informed that Attorney General Bill Barr will not testify at a planned hearing Thursday, an aide to the panel told Fox News — even as the Democrats who lead the committee vowed to hold the hearing anyway, and threatened a possible contempt citation against Barr.
The prospect of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y, gaveling a hearing with an empty chair came hours after Barr endured withering questioning from the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier in the day.
Democratic Caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., said Wednesday afternoon that Democrats “plan on subpoenaing” Barr “if he decides not to show up.”
“He can run but he can’t hide,” Jeffries said…
Nadler and his fellow Democratic piranhas were all set not to just question Barr but to opening accuse him of protecting President Trump with his response to the Mueller report.
Nadler and other Democrats on the committee had already displayed their hostility and anger at Barr, indicating that they were not after the truth, but only to crucify Barr for agreeing with Mueller that there was insufficient evidence to warrant obstruction of justice charges against Trump.
As one person already pointed, since the Mueller investigation was based on fake news (Steele dossier) and was prompted by an illegal FISA warrant and was part of an orchestrated coup to oust a president, there was NO justice to obstruct, only INJUSTICE.
