Democrats demand Barr testify 'not in a month ... but now'


They want the attorney general to explain his decision to release a summary of Robert Mueller's conclusions without also unveiling the full report.

House Democratic leaders are calling for Attorney General William Barr to immediately appear for a hearing to explain his decision last month to release a top-line summary of Robert Mueller’s investigation without unveiling the full report.

It's a move that has given President Donald Trump a potent — and at times misleading — talking point about the conclusions of the nearly two-year Russia probe and left Democrats frustrated with Barr.

Barr's four-page memo said the special counsel did not find a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Moscow to sway the 2016 presidential election, but it also said that Mueller did not exonerate the president on obstruction of justice. However, Barr added that he would not charge the president with obstruction of justice. Trump has touted the letter as a complete vindication.

The chairmen of six committees, including Judiciary’s Jerry Nadler, said in their letter sent Monday to Barr that he should testify “as soon as possible — not in a month, as you have offered, but now” to discuss his rationale.

1. Issue a subpoena by the end of the week.......

Place him in CONTEMPT of Congress if he refuses. It will only further the argument that AG Barr is COVERING UP for Trump because he knows what is in the report from Mueller implicates Trump in activities that are impeachable.

2. t-rump will now have to close the border and create more

havoc on the USA inorder to deflect him from this. t-rump only cares about himself and he never cared about this country nor her people. It's always about him.

He will destroy a nation to protect himself and his daughter.

Make America Great Again is a LIE, and always have been.

3. No time like the present

And, since Barr has already made his decision and taken his action, the rationale has already been set, so Barr doesn't need a month to prepare his explanation.
