Rep. Jim Jordan: ‘Democrats Are Scared’ of AG Barr

(CNSNews.com) – Democrats “are bound and determined to go after the attorney general, to go after President Trump,” instead of helping the country, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) told “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.
In a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Friday, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, set a Monday morning deadline, 9 a.m., for Barr to make the full, unredacted Mueller report, plus all the underlying evidence, available to all members of Congress who would view it in a secure area.
Nadler is expected to hold Barr in contempt of Congress if he refuses, as he’s expected to do.
“So I think they’re nervous about Bill Barr, because remember what he said three weeks ago in front of the Senate Finance Committee,” Jordan said:
He made four important points. First of all, he said spying did in fact take place. Second, he said there is a basis for his concern that the spying wasn’t properly predicated. Third, he said there was a failure of leadership at the upper echelon of the FBI. We know that for sure.
Comey, McCabe, Baker, Strzok, Page, we know there was a failure of leadership there. And then, fourth, he used two terms that I have never really heard before, and my guess is most Americans haven’t. He used the term unauthorized surveillance and he used the term political surveillance.
So the Democrats are scared. And, frankly, I think, when we’re talking about obstruction of justice, the real obstruction of justice is what Democrats are trying to do to the attorney general. They are trying to stop him by all these things, this contempt and not having him come testify. They are trying to stop him from getting the answers that we just talked about.
