The House Judiciary Committee voted Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for not giving the committee special counsel Robert Mueller’s full, unredacted report.

The committee, led by New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler, originally gave Barr a deadline of 9 a.m. Monday to turn in the full report with no redactions, which many Republicans believe would be dangerous due to the possibly sensitive material that could be leaked. –Daily Caller

Representative Jerry Nadler, proudly tweeted about appearing on the low-ratings CNN, to discuss the “markup on holding AG Barr in contempt of Congress.”

The Judiciary Chair probably forgot about the time he joined a walkout with other Democrats while the House was voting to hold Eric Holder in contempt of court for refusing to supply Congress with documents related to the proven Fast ‘n Furious gun-running operation. In June 2012, Nadler tweeted: Just joined the of the House chamber to protest the shameful, politically-motivated GOP vote holding AG Holder in contempt

Democrats called Republicans attempts to obtain the documents regarding the Fast ‘n Furious gun-running operation from AG Holder, a “witch hunt.”

Speaker Pelosi called the contempt of Congress a “political scheme” and a “shameful display of power by Republicans in the House of Representatives.” Nancy condemned Republicans for not focusing on important legislative issues, calling Republicans attempts to hold AG Holder in contempt because they’re trying to suppress the vote. If only Nancy had a crystal ball, so she could’ve seen what a hypocrite she and her party would look like only five years later, after wasting 2 1/2 years of America’s time on a witch hunt they started with a spying operation on a Republican presidential candidate.

Democrat Representative Elenor Holmes Norton, (D-DC) admonished Republicans for holding AG Holder in contempt of Congress. Norton called it “the first time in U.S. history” that a member has held an AG in contempt.

Here’s the video showing Democrats walking out during Holder’s contempt of Congress vote.
