Jim Jordan just exposed Jerry Nadler and the Democrats for what they are doing to a good man, Bill Barr.
Jordan is correct in saying that what Nadler wants to do is itself breaking the law and moreover, they are terrified that Barr will turn the tables.
Then he lowered the boom and issued a threat to the nervous Democrats: “Barr’s gonna find out how and why this investigation started in the first place.”
From The Daily Caller:
Jordan, the ranking member of the committee, claimed that Democrats want to “destroy” Barr because they are worried that he might investigate how the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election began.
“Democrats are nervous he’s gonna get to the bottom of everything,” Jordan said. “He’s gonna find out how and why this investigation started in the first place.”
Jordan was referring to Barr’s testimony in front of the Senate Appropriations Committee last month where the attorney general said that he believed “spying did occur” on Trump’s 2016 campaign and that the Justice Department would investigate it.
The White House announced while the hearing was occurring that President Donald Trump would invoke executive privilege regarding the full, un-redacted Mueller report.
“The attorney general has been transparent and accommodating throughout this process, including by releasing the no-collusion, no-conspiracy, no-obstruction Mueller Report to the public and offering to testify before the Committee,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “These attempts to work with the committee have been flatly rejected.”
“Faced with [House Judiciary] Chairman [Jerry] Nadler’s blatant abuse of power, and at the Attorney General’s request, the President has no other option than to make a protective assertion of executive privilege,” she continued.
