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 article goes on to state the following:

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.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., was one of the first calling for the House to pursue “inherent contempt,” which would have Barr arrested by the sergeant at arms—a tactic reportedly not employed since the 1930s.

Several other lawmakers are now warming to the idea.

Show your support for President Trump!

    The democrats have lost their way! They are afraid of what’s coming with the IG report and know Barr is going to hold them accountable for all the corruption that took place from all of them trying to remove from office a duly elected president!

    The only ones who need to be investigated and jailed are the Democrats. Nothing but a lot of Obstructionists. You all need to be accountable only to the American citizens to whom you work for and not the illegal immigrants.

    Never voted for Cohen, never will. Just admit this whole thing for the past two years and this witch hunt now is because your truly crooked Clinton lost the election. Pathetic!
