LIVE VIDEO: House Votes On Holding Barr In Contempt

ABC News reports:

The Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Wednesday said he will go forward with a vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for not complying with a subpoena to turn over the full Mueller report despite a last-minute threat from the Justice Department that if it happens, it will ask President Donald Trump to invoke executive privilege over the disputed material.

The Justice Department warned Tuesday night that Barr would ask Trump to invoke executive privilege over the full Mueller report if Democrats moved forward with contempt proceedings. “Unfortunately, the Committee has responded to our accommodation efforts by escalating its unreasonable demands and scheduling a committee vote to recommend that the Attorney General be held in contempt of Congress,” the Justice Department wrote in a letter to Nadler on Tuesday night.
