Attorney General William Barr just broke his silence after the Democrats, led by Jerry Nadler, held him in contempt.

William Barr joked about a contempt of Congress vote on Thursday. During a farewell ceremony for his Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Barr poked fun at House Democrats.

“You like records,” Barr said at the Justice Department event, referring to Rosenstein. “This must be a record for an attorney general being proposed for contempt within a hundred days of taking office.”

After the Justice Department defied a subpoena to hand over special counsel Robert Mueller’s full, unredacted report for the Russia investigation, the House Judiciary Committee voted to cite Barr for contempt of Congress on Wednesday, but did so along party lines. Meanwhile, the White House asserted executive privilege over Mueller’s findings.

Republicans voted against the contempt resolution, arguing Democrats are seeking to drag out the Mueller probe, which found no criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russians, but made no determination about whether Trump tried to obstruct the investigation.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., told the press that the United States is now in a “constitutional crisis.”

From Fox News: But Nadler took a very different stance on contempt back in 2012, when House Republicans took the same step against then-AG Eric Holder for refusing to hand over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, where DOJ officials tracked thousands of guns smuggled across the border but did nothing to stop them.

“Just joined the #walkout of the House chamber to protest the shameful, politically-motivated GOP vote holding AG [Eric] Holder in contempt,” Nadler tweeted in 2012.

He joined more than 100 Democrats in walking out over the vote to hold the Obama-era DOJ leader in contempt.

Then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued House Republicans were more politically motivated in attacking Holder than driven to get to the bottom of the failed operation. “What is happening here is shameful,” said Pelosi.

      I don’t see any difference between the democratic leadership in congress than that of the insanity demonstrated by Adolph Hitler and his gang of murdering criminals. Going the depth they have gone to thoroughly disrupt this nation is a clear sign of CRIMINAL INTENT.

      Democrats are nothing like “children.” Children in their misdeeds, have no evil, malevolent intent. Democrats on the other hand are puppets of New World Order head, George Soros. Soros says, “jump,” and Democrats ask, “how high.” The AG, just joined President Trump on the New World Order “Hit List.” He needs to watch his personal security at all times and trust no one outside his close inner circle. May God Bless America and smite down the New World Order where they hide.

      You had better be on your knees praying to God that MAGA wins the battle and saves our country. If the Soros Democrats and their New World Order retakes full control the downward slide starts again. You will know when we hit rock bottom because America will be burning and in chaos. Wake up fellow Americans to the threat to our freedom. The Barbarians are not just at the gates, they are already inside the City.

    I say freeze their dang pay seeing as they are not really doing a dam thing for America. All we have from them is turning their backs on America for illegals, and the constant harassment on Trump with is BS. Now picking on Barr too cause they know he will get to the bottom of all the crooked corrupt Dems involved in the coup to take down Trump. The public is sick and tired of all their dam games. Enough is enough. Lets start slamming that hammer down on all the corrupt Dems.

      Even more simply than that Neo. It is proven fact that Holder was involved in Fast and Furious, and he withheld evidence anyway. Barr has done nothing except act in accordance to law. That is night and day.

    Look those of you making jokes.over this. This is serious, your jokes are as immature as the Democrats. It’s time to fight, not joke around. If I were Barr, I’d make this known publicaly what Nadler did when Holder wouldn’t testify. I’d make him answer the questions. Why was that different considering it involved guns being sold to drug cartels. Then ask. Aren’t you Democrats trying to bann guns. When Nadler took his arrogant attitude about answering the questions. I’d force it on him.

    • Patrick Rodgers

      May 10, 2019 at 12:20 am

      You are right to be deadly serious about this internal threat to our country. It has been building, one step at a time for fifty years and the New World Order (Deep State) had complete control prior to the emergence of Donald Trump. They want their control back and will not stop at nothing fo get it. Their wealth, power and reach are beyond belief. Not sure the President understands the full threat he faces, because he still has not eliminated the NWO embeds from his inner circle and critical Federal Agencies. Americans also need to be educated as to the extent of this threat and the New World Order clones eliminated like the vermin they are. Anything less, is giving them a playing field upon which to operate.

      Nadler was confronted on The House Floor about his prior statements about Holder and contempt. He replied with something about an evolving opinion. He should have said he has a Revolving opinion because he will swing around 180 degrees when the shoe is on the other foot.

    The demoncrats have dug their very own grave. I hope this is the end of that demoncrat party. Arrest and jail for life in Guantanamo Bay, however, really need the death penalty. It would be cheaper than supplying food and board for life . . . and Ssooo many of those orange jumpsuits~!!! No Mercy~!!! For they had none for President Trump, his Family, those in his Administration, and We, the American People. It’s a smack in our faces, too~!!! They are not above the law with President Trump in Office and they should never have been above the law with obama either, however, when he was one of them I guess everyone was thinking they would get away with it. The American People are Smarter and saw they were pulling strings for their benefit. In fact, they still are and until they are all dressed in orange they will try anything behind the scenes. Oh, and remember to include Soros, Rothschilds, and Rockefellers, a.k.a. Deep State Members.

    Democrats, behold your party’s profile now in 2019: When it became unpopular to be found out as a member of the Communist Party of America, members joined the rank and file of the Democrat Party. Therein lies the reason for thuggery, lies, name-calling, pro-abortion, voter-fraud, and violence coming from the Democrat Party liberals. And most of the MSM is a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. You members belong to a new kind of political party that is unlike the one of your mom and pop. Think before you choose affiliation these days. The choices are slippery and sliming.

    So, Americans (I’m pretty sure), have voted these people in, who once in, all
    become millionaires. Can I ask, what have they done to have all of us prosper?

    This President has done more than ANY of them, and he has not only been there
    for only 2 years, but he has been attacked and held back every step of the way.

    The tops of our country are as corrupt as ever, and go figure why they hate
    a guy like Mr. Make America Great Again… He would expose them all, because
    they have a “Country Club” of thieves.

    Even some leaders from other countries know this very well.
    Lately, he happens to be pinning the China Leader up against
    the wall for lying and deceiving us on trade agreements.

    We should buckle up if need be, and fight for him and what he’s
    succeeding doing for our country. What’s the matter with all who don’t?
    Hard to stomach!

    Nadler and Pelosi two two-faced idiots. Screaming Republican pol;tics when Holder was
    held in contempt. Remember Holder would not provide evidence in the actual murder of
    a U.S. Border Patrol agent which Holder’s and Obama’s gun-running were responsible for. Both should have been put on trial for murder. Now idiots Nadler amd Pelosi want to try AG Barr for refusing to appear to answer question on a no crime from their staffs. Appears Nadler and his other democrat cronies of the committee lack the intelligence and the guts to question the best AG we have had in at least ten years. When it gets right down to it,
    the democrats will do all that they can to get rid of AF Barr because they know if he remains in office he will expose how corrupt the entire Obama administration including the entire democrat congressional delegation was and is.

    Nadler is nothing but a lowlife communist! If anybody has brought this nation to a constitutional crisis it is been the communist a.k.a. Democrat party that has been destroying this country for the last 80 to 100 years as they have been taken over by the communist party just as the communist manifesto says it would do along with some in the Republican Party and you know who they are! With all the hard-core evidence against those in Congress in the Democrat party that have lied to Congress in the last two years and not one of them has even had a spanking on the hand not one yet they went after a couple of trumps people just to get back to Trump and the American people. If I were Trump I would get the military that I control and I would arrest every Democrat in Congress and the first federal judge that open his mouth that was trying to come to their aid I would arrest his ass also and I would take every dime each One of them have and put it back in the taxpayers fun as they have stolen all this money from the taxpayers to start with either a violation of both of office for the last seven years and the deaths of all those who died for this nation.

    There’s a Scripture in the bible that says to be quick to respond is foolishness, but a calm approach is wisdom!Here we see a man who has a lot of wisdom, even though if it were me, I would have done a one two punch over their heads in correcting their ignorance! AG Bill Barr not only had the right to not give them the unredcated parts of the Mueller report, but they know if he had, they could call another contempt on him because that portion of the report was subpoened and federal information which was not suppose to be exposed. Rather each one of these DUM-O-CRATS could go personally and read it for themselves! Which of course they chose not to do, but rather wanted to extend this whole hocus pocus Russian conspiracy to drag it out forever. But they are making a big mistake…because people are getting wise to their shenanigans and by November 2020 maybe most Americans in the states and districts these bafoons live in will be removed from office! That’s are only hope,get rid of the obstructionist and get someone in office that really cares about the American people and our constitution! Because these people want to rewrite it to stay in power!

They want underlings,lawyers,clerks to scour and find any uncrossed T and undotted I…..and report those to nanner and chuckie. Take them to the woodshed, and beat them with a switch POTUS…..they are not interested in America one little bit……

    Just look at the Democrats reaction to Holder’s contempt charge, when he clearly withheld evidence to protect his own butt. Now, Barr refuses to release parts of the Mueller report that can not be released because they are protected by Law. You can bet that if Barr released this unredacted report, it would be leaked in a matter of hours, possibly harming American citizens. Either way, Barr is following the Laws passed by Congress, so Congress needs to stop this nonsense and follow their own enacted decisions.
