As Attorney General Bill Barr investigates the investigators behind the Mueller probe that yielded no evidence proving President Trump colluded with Russia, Congressional Democrats are growing unhinged at the possibility that their party officials could be implicated.
They are resorting to holding Barr in contempt for not releasing unredacted portions of the Mueller report, in an attempt to ruin his reputation for the purposes of undermining the ongoing investigation:
CONFIRMED: House Dems voting next week to hold AG Bill Barr in contempt of Congress for refusing to hand over unredacted Mueller Report, sources in leadership meeting say. Politico first reported.

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) claims that “systematic refusal to provide Congress with answers and cooperate with Congressional subpoenas is the biggest cover-up in American history, and Congress has a responsibility to provide oversight on behalf of the American people.”
“I spent six years with the Justice Department and I venerate the department, to think that it is being led by someone this way breaks my heart for the department but is profoundly concerning for the country,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said of Barr’s supposedly unethical behavior.
But Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) notes that Barr would be risking a violation of federal law if the complied with the requests of Congress.
“We’re really doing this?” Crenshaw wrote in a tweet. “We’re all supposed to just ignore the fact that Barr is bound by federal law to protect grand jury information? Are we pretending there might be some bombshell hidden in there? This is dishonest politics meant to discredit Barr.”
Legal analyst Sean Davis of The Federalist backs up Crenshaw’s assertion:
This is happening despite the fact that former FBI spook Robert Mueller lauded Barr for his cooperation in releasing his report during last week’s press conference when he announced his special counsel into Russian interference would be shuttered.
“We conducted an independent criminal investigation and reported the results to the Attorney General—as required by Department regulations,” Mueller said. “The Attorney General then concluded that it was appropriate to provide our report to Congress and the American people.”
Mueller even commended Barr for his transparency in releasing the report, as he released more than even Mueller would have if he were in Barr’s position.
“At one point in time I requested that certain portions of the report be released. The Attorney General preferred to make the entire report public all at once. We appreciate that the Attorney General made the report largely public. I do not question the Attorney General’s good faith in that decision,” Mueller said.
Despite the haranguing from unhinged Democrats, Barr remains steadfastly focused on getting to the bottom of the Russian probe and the illegal spying that likely took place against President Trump.
“I’m not suggesting that people did what they did necessarily because of conscious, nefarious motives. Sometimes people can convince themselves that what they’re doing is in the higher interest, the better good. They don’t realize that what they’re doing is really antithetical to the democratic system that we have,” Barr said in a recent CBS News interview.
Referring to texts sent between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page plotting against Trump, Barr added: “If those kinds of discussions were held, you know, when Obama first ran for office, people talking about Obama in those tones and suggesting that ‘Oh he might be a Manchurian candidate for Islam’ or something like that. You know, some wild accusations like that, and you had that kind of discussion back and forth, you don’t think we would be hearing a lot more about it?”
Hearing Barr talk about the issue of Obama-era subversion of national intelligence for partisan purposes with such candor and clarity, it is easy to see why Democrats are acting so maliciously against him.
Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump
The GOP is crumbling.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.
This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.
“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”
“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”
Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.
“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.
Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.
“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said.
“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.
The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…
Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”
The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
