"In the days since the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress, more and more Democratic lawmakers have opened the door to the possibility of arresting the Justice Department leader in a bid to force cooperation -- despite party powerbrokers signaling opposition to such a radical step.
The committee last week voted to hold Barr in contempt for failing to comply with a congressional subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia report and underlying materials, as President Trump asserted executive privilege to protect those same files from release.In the days since the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress, more and more Democratic lawmakers have opened the door to the possibility of arresting the Justice Department leader in a bid to force cooperation -- despite party powerbrokers signaling opposition to such a radical step."
"The committee last week voted to hold Barr in contempt for failing to comply with a congressional subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia report and underlying materials, as President Trump asserted executive privilege to protect those same files from release."
"The panel's party-line decision sent the measure to the House floor for a final vote. If approved, the measure would be referred to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia—who could choose not to act. House Democrats could also pursue a lawsuit."
"But there's a more drastic step that has been gaining traction among some of Barr's fiercest critics -- the possibility of dragging Barr in to testify or jailing the AG for defying the subpoena."

The Democrats are really showing their true colors with this move. The Judiciary commit has access to read the unredacted report if they wish. Not a single Dem has availed themselves to this option. They want it delivered so it can be made public and they want it delivered so they will have a valid reason to impeach AG Barr. His delivery of the completely u redacted report wopuld be a violation of Federal law covering Grand Jury information. It cannot be revealed Period. His delivery would be revealing it to the general public. Barr knows this as to the Democrats trying to get him.

    Someone suggested sending the Sgt at Arms to arrest Barr! Don't think the Sergeant has that authority. Why don't those Dumb Democraps read the Constitution?

    If I were one of these idiots, I'd be ashamed to show my face. Don't they realize how stupid they look? Really? Impeach Trump? For what? Get rid of Barr? Why? They have no grounds for this idiocy!

      If he delivers the unredacted report they will have ggrounds. He will have given out Grand Jury information that he is forbidden by law from giving out to the public. That is why they are demanding he give it up. They could read it in a special reading room but not a single Democrat has availed themselves of this offer.
