If House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler was trying to rattle Attorney General Bill Barr by voting to hold him in contempt of Congress, he failed miserably.
Bill Barr is like a boxer who laughs after taking a hit.
Barr laughed at Nadler and the Dems Thursday during Rod Rosenstein’s farewell ceremony.
‘This must be a record of Attorney General being proposed for contempt within 100 days of taking office,” Barr said laughing.

President Trump on Wednesday asserted executive privilege over the full, unredacted version of Mueller’s report and the House Dems voted to hold AG Barr in contempt of Congress for refusing to give Congress the full report and underlying grand jury material.
Nadler and the Dems voted to hold Barr in contempt for following the law. This is the current state of affairs in this country.
The Dem-controlled Judiciary Committee chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), held a vote Wednesday morning and voted on party lines — 22 Dems to 12 Republicans.
The Justice Department hit back at Nadler and the Dems in statement Wednesday afternoon.
The DOJ argued that AG Barr made “extraordinary efforts to provide Congress” with information related to Mueller’s report, however the attorney general was not going to break the law.
Bill Barr does not seem fazed whatsoever by the Democrats, even though he is facing a contempt citation — it takes a fearless Attorney General like Bill Barr to deal with the lawless Deep State-Democrat-media complex.
