    All Barr has to do is to ask the Federal Judge to open the Grand Jury Transcripts as was done in Watergate. That’s all he has to do on that issue. And Barr won’t do so. Instead he slow-walks this whole issue.

    Nadler won’t do the courtesy of reading what he has been provided and giving Barr the predicate for requesting the court order. There needs to be some showing of need beyond mere curiosity. Barr can’t swear to something he doesn’t believe but he can put put forward the legal argument if Congress would actually articulate one. Also, Andy McCarthy has pointed out that Congress created the rule and could pass legislation to amend it — but Nadler would prefer the issue not the facts.

    They have several important reasons they could honestly give:

    1. “We don’t like Trump”
    2. “We really don’t like Trump”
    3. “Come on . . . it’s Trump we’re talking about!”

    I just love Ramirez’s work. He really captures the issue, doesn’t he?

    For the record … even Jonah’s given up the ghost on defending the indefensible dems … Holding Barr in Contempt is dirty politics … (even though he is still decidedly in the ignorant OMB camp).
