Barr Says No; Nadler Cries Like A Little Girl

Attorney General William Barr and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler have been unable to come to terms regarding Barr’s testimony scheduled for today. AG Barr has declined to testify. Nadler, of New York, pouted and cried like a little girl, some might even say he was snitty.

The House Judiciary Committee has been trying to get Barr to agree to be questioned by staff lawyers, rather than the members of Congress, you know the actual elected representatives. Nadler and other Democrats have claimed that this is because witnesses filibuster. Funny, isn’t it? I don’t remember witnesses filibustering before the House or the Senate. I do remember the old gassy windbags, who we elected, filibustering in their questions while the witnesses wait to testify. Here is what the Washington Post reported:

Attorney General William P. Barr told a House panel on Wednesday that he will not testify about special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report, raising the prospect that Democrats will hold the nation’s top law enforcement official in contempt of Congress.

Barr, who also missed a deadline for subpoenaed information on Wednesday, had been scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday about his handling of Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. But Barr balked at the committee’s plan to have a committee counsel question him alongside lawmakers, a snub that angered Democrats.

“When push comes to shove, the administration cannot dictate the terms of our hearing in our hearing room,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), chairman of the committee, told reporters. He said the panel would meet as planned and added, “I hope and expect that the attorney general will think overnight and will be there as well.”

So, what’s a frustrated Congressman to do? Why, run right for a bank of waiting cameras, that’s what. Behold the nattering Nadler in action:

“Lack of candor in describing the Special Counsel”? Just because AG Barr didn’t say what the Senate Dems wanted him to say. “The full unredacted Mueller Report”? I wouldn’t give anything to the House of Representatives. They leak. They all leak. Nadler then says that Bill Barr is “terrified” of facing skilled lawyers. Terrified?

Yesterday, on Fox News Channel, Attorney Sol Wisenberg called Bill Barr the “honey badger” after the famous video. Honey badger don’t care. I laughed and laughed. Wisenberg said it three times. Mediaite noticed:

While it’s not terribly notable that a Fox News contributor concluded that Barr did remarkably well before the at times challenging questioning, his reference of an Internet meme from many years back merits discussion here on Mediaite.com.

Co-Host Sandra Smith asked what Mr. Wisenberg what he made of Barr’s testimony thus far, the Fox News contributor offered that was strikes him is that “Bill Barr is the honey badger,” before adding “Dick Durbin, honey badger don’t care. Pat Leahy, honey badger don’t give a [bleep].”

Wisenberg continued to laud Barr by saying “He handled himself very well with one exception. He does very well in these contexts, because he’s smarter than just about anybody in the room.”

And that, ladies and gentleman, is why the diminutive (in height and mental ability) Nadler has to call in staff lawyers to question AG Barr. That is why Nadler is crying like a little girl. Bill Barr don’t care. Bill Barr will testify when he wants to testify. Bill Barr is the honey badger. Jerrold Nadler, honey badger don’t care.

    Barr isn’t dictating the form of the interviews. He’s just saying if he will show up.

    Evidently, today, he went totally bats*it crazy. He brought KFC to the meeting and put a rubber chicken in the witness’ chair. He called Barr a chicken. Then when a Republican called him out over procedure, he turned off the Republican’s mic and gavelled out the hearing.

    • GWB says:

      Mea culpa.
      It seems I misidentified the nutball who brought the chicken – it was Steve Cohen.
      (All the crazy ones start to look alike after a while….)
