🚨Trump White House just asserted executive privilege over the #MuellerReport. Just as House Judiciary is about to vote to hold Attorney General Barr in #contempt for refusing to provide the full report. Roy Cohn Barr threatened he would tell WH to do this. Absurd and abusive.
Louis Gohmert has said “coup” twice already, pushing the absurd and desperate propaganda that the Russia investigation was a “failed coup” to “set up” a legitimate POTUS. (Did Putin give Trump+/his propagandists that idea? It’s a favorite Kremlin trope!) #BarrContemptHearing
Sad Twilight Zone: Democrats are talking about the constitution, rule of law, defending our institutions. Republicans spew propaganda buzzwords—“liberal media overlords” “kangaroo court” “coup” “spying” “Strzok.” Can’t even defend Barr. #Obstruction #BarrContemptHearing

@WaysMeansCmte member @RepLloydDoggett told @CNN that Congress must use its inherent power to hold Trump admin officials in #contempt, including “arrest.”

“We may have to rent a jail.”

On Bill Barr: "I don't want to throw him in jail, but I'm ready to do so."😎
Excellent intestinal fortitude shown by the gentleman from Texas, Democratic @RepLloydDoggett. NO ONE is above the law. If Trump admin officials don’t comply with a #subpoena, then LOCK THEM UP‼️

CORRECTION: finally found the clip, and Doggett said that Congress “perhaps our contracting with a jail” (not “we may have to rent a jail.”)

Attorney General Vs Solicitor General in the #SupremeCourt over contempt against adv Prashant Bhushan.
Initiated at his instance, AG now wants to withdraw his contempt petition against Bhushan. But the SG presses for penalising Bhushan for repeatedly attacking judges & judiciary.
But Justice Arun Mishra isn't inclined to close the contempt proceeding at this stage. "Nothing will go right now. We will decide everything at one go...this is beyond resolve now. We aren't interested in personal pacts," says the judge.
Sr adv Indira Jaising seeks to be heard in the #contempt Prashant Bhushan. Sr adv Anand Grover stands up to argue for her. Justice Mishra asks who is he appearing for, AG states Grover should say he is appearing to his wife. Jaising objects to being referred as someone's wife.
