    these people need useful work to do…

    selling millennials treats outfits for their little doggies goldfish would be more dignified than this self-beclowning dumpster fire of a performance.

    How about those dick-less wonders work on social security or the taxpayer killing cost of prescription medicines. There are a whole bunch of lamp posts in dc. I am actually surprised that some have not started hanging the useless from said posts.

    Now, IANAL and all that, but this just occurred to me …

    The Dims were demanding that Barr hand over not only the entire unredacted report but also the underlying evidence associated with all the Grand Jury investigations referred to in the report. The law prohibits Barr from doing so (because it would immediately blow those investigations out of the water. Hell, even the mere existence of a GJ is meant to be kept secret.)

    So the Dims were using threats (the threat of a contempt finding) to force Barr to violate the law. This strikes me as suborning a crime, which is a crime in and of itself. Or should be.

    Be awfully entertaining if Barr’s DOJ turned around tomorrow and laid charges against every Dim who voted Aye today …

    So just what is the penalty for “Contempt of Congress”?? Having the power to subpoena with no ability to enforce it is an empty threat. Barr can frame it and hang it on the wall.

    ^ Ask Eric Holder …

    And BTW, I came across this comment elsewhere:

    “I’m not a smart man, but now that Execute Priv. has been claimed over all materials and the report related to the Mueller investigation… I don’t think that Mister Mueller will be able to talk about much when he goes before the House Judiciary, or the Senate Judiciary for that matter.

    Unintended consequences of Nadler being a doofus.”

    Bwa-ha-ha-ha !!!!
