Attorney General William Barr testified Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee and was slated to reappear Thursday. However, Barr canceled his Thursday testimony after he was interrogated by Democratic lawmakers on a myriad of issues pertaining to special counsel Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Democrats on the Senate committee also publicly disclosed a letter Wednesday that Mueller wrote to Barr following the March letter the attorney general sent Congress.

Barr’s memo detailed his principal conclusion about Mueller’s report. In summary, Barr said he and the deputy attorney general concluded that Trump’s actions did not constitute obstruction of justice.

In the letter released Wednesday, Mueller rebuked the attorney general’s characterization of his investigation, accusing Barr of creating “public confusion about critical aspects of the results.”

“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions,” Mr. Mueller wrote in the letter addressed to Barr.

“There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation,” Mr. Mueller wrote. “This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.”

California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!

That’s a new one!

A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!

Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.

Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”

Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.

An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.

Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.

There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
