Rep. Nancy Pelosi has begun a campaign against President Trump and the his administration by using the term “constitutional crisis.”
Rep. Jerry Nadler declared the country was in this “constitutional crisis” after holding U.S. Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress after he failed to turn over the unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report along with underlying evidence.
Pelosi and the Democrats haven’t worked for the country a single day since Trump was elected. All they care about is impeachment and investigations. What plans do they have for the country that don’t involve impeachment or investigations?
Democrats have access to the full Volume 2 Mueller Report except for redactions of two complete lines and seven partial lines which have been redacted due to grand jury testimony. These testimonies are in relation to current investigations. Remember that line Democrats kept using during the Mueller Investigation? It is “against the law” to release information concerning an investigation. So Democrats are holding Barr in contempt for upholding the law and using “constitutional crisis” like a millstone tied around the neck of President Trump.

“The administration has decided that they’re not going to honor their oaths of office, appalling that this administration would not even pretend to want to protect our elections and in fact be an obstacle to our finding out more about how it happened so we can prevent it from happening again,” Pelosi said at her weekly press conference.
“Every day, they are advertising their obstruction of justice by ignoring subpoenas and by just declaring that people shouldn’t come and speak to Congress so that the American people can find out the truth about the Russian disruption of our election so that it doesn’t happen again,” she said.
When asked about the timing of the full House vote to hold Barr in contempt, she alluded to possible future resistance from other administration officials, saying:
“When we’re ready, we’ll come to the floor. There might be some other contempt-of-Congress issues that we want to deal with at the same time.”
Isn’t it ironic Democrats and Pelosi didn’t think it was a constitutional crisis when former Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for hiding the documents that might have incriminated Obama on ‘Fast and Furious?’
The crisis is that the Democrats said Republicans wouldn’t trust the findings of the Mueller report and now it is them not trusting them. They don’t need to see the redactions if Mueller did his job right and found no other indictments.
Are they going to second guess the findings and advise indictments even though Mueller thought none were needed? Or do they want to find anything embarrassing possible to use against Trump and the Republicans? They should have to admit which one it is.
Also, we know they will release those details to the media even though it is illegal to do so. How about if any info gets to the media every Democrat that is in Congress is investigated and during the investigation into the leak they can be indicted for lying, omissions, or anything else found along the way?
If the Democrats win big in the next election we will see a constitutional crisis. It’s a good thing President Trump got to pick the latest Supreme Court justices, which certainly avoided the constitutional crisis that would have arose had Hillary been elected.
