The House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress. From here, it will go to the floor of the House if Speaker Pelosi chooses to hold a vote.
BREAKING: House Judiciary votes to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress by a vote of 24 -16 along party lines.
The resolution is reported to the House where, if it passes, the Speaker can refer Barr for prosecution under federal law.

Earlier, President Trump invoked executive privilege to keep the unredacted Mueller report secret.
“They’re asking for information they know they can’t have. The attorney general is actually upholding the law,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. “Chairman Nadler is asking the attorney general of the United States to break the law and commit a crime by releasing information that he knows he has no legal authority to have. It’s truly outrageous and absurd what the chairman is doing and he should be embarrassed that he’s behaving this way.”
This show will not end well for the Democrats. They’re going forward because they have no place else to go except admit defeat on the Mueller report. But that’s not stopping them from being fools and demonstrating some exertion of the limited power they hold.
Whether or not Pelosi will move forward is debatable, but if she does and they hold Barr in contempt, he’ll have to recuse himself for an investigation that will yield nothing. Nevertheless, it’s a fun show for the left to watch and feel like their elected officials are accomplishing something, which they’re not.
Refer Barr to whom? The DOJ, which he runs? This is a joke. https://t.co/6S7XEmSFap

This is all the Democrats have. They refuse to address issues facing Americans, so they put on a dog and pony show intended to tell their constituents their focus is on taking down the President no matter who gets hurt.
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
