Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats are out for blood.
They think if they take down Attorney General William Barr, then Donald Trump is next.
And Nancy Pelosi just hit William Barr with an ultimatum that will leave you speechless.
Democrats are still trying to make political hay out of the Mueller report.
Mueller failed to turn up a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.
And the special counsel’s attempt to push the impeachment ball down the field by outrageously announcing he could make no determination on obstruction of justice also fell flat.
So Democrats cooked up a fake news hoax about Attorney General William Barr protecting the President by “covering up” the true findings in the Mueller report.
Democrats hung this ridiculous claim on the idea that Attorney General Barr would not violate United States law and hand Congress secret grand jury material.
To keep the cover-up story alive, Democrats have now planned a contempt vote for June 11 against Attorney General Barr, as well as former White House Counsel Don McGahn who honored the White House’s assertion of executive privilege and did not honor the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee’s subpoena.
A provocation like this can only move forward with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s approval.
It became clear Pelosi sanctioned this move when her right hand man – House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer – endorsed the contempt vote.
“This Administration’s systematic refusal to provide Congress with answers and cooperate with Congressional subpoenas is the biggest cover-up in American history, and Congress has a responsibility to provide oversight on behalf of the American people,” Majority Leader Hoyer’s statement read.
Democrats are not holding a vote on a criminal contempt charge.
Despite many Democrats as well as their allies in the fake news media chomping at the bit to jail Barr, Pelosi knows when she is playing a losing hand.
There is simply no way the Justice Department will enforce the Democrats criminal contempt charge against the Attorney General.
So instead, Democrats will hold a civil contempt vote.
This toothless measure does not matter.
Nor does the failure to jail Barr.
The vote will allow the media to bombard Americans with a false narrative that the Trump administration is filled with shady characters, that Trump is a criminal, and Barr is a corrupt lackey covering up his numerous attempts to obstruct justice and collude with the Russians.
That there is no shred of truth to any aspect of this story is beside the point.
Democrats – and the media – need to manufacture a scandal to either impeach the President or grind down his approval ratings to the point where Donald Trump is unelectable in 2020.
That’s what this is all about.
The left refuses to accept the results of the 2016 election.
And every elected Democrat and fake news reporter is determined to do everything in their power to make sure Trump is out in 2020.
