Against Pelosi’s Wishes, Democrats Clamor for Arrest of Attorney General

The arrest of Bill Barr would likely set off a storm of controversy over the Capitol, with our national discourse having been forever tainted by the inflammatory infotainment industry and the false dichotomy of “left versus right”. 

The democrats are losing control of the fringe edges of their party, and Nancy Pelosi is none too pleased about it.

In her role as House Speaker, Pelosi has been at the top of the liberal food chain since the 2018 midterm elections.  Often, this position comes with the sort of magnanimous authority that helps to keep the otherwise wild ducks in a row.

But Pelosi has met her match in Donald Trump – a man so thoroughly reviled by the fresh faces within the democratic party that these underlings have been rebuffing Madame Speaker’s calls for civility at every turn.

Their latest break with democratic leadership has many calling for the arrest of Attorney General Bill Barr.

In the days since the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress, more and more Democratic lawmakers have opened the door to the possibility of arresting the Justice Department leader in a bid to force cooperation — despite party powerbrokers signaling opposition to such a radical step.

The committee last week voted to hold Barr in contempt for failing to comply with a congressional subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia report and underlying materials, as President Trump asserted executive privilege to protect those same files from release.

The language coming from the left was stern and unkempt.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., was one of the first calling for the House to pursue “inherent contempt,” which would have Barr arrested by the sergeant at arms—a tactic reportedly not employed since the 1930s.

Several other lawmakers are now warming to the idea.

“We know how to arrest people around here,” Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., told Politico. “And if we need to arrest someone, the [House] sergeant-at-arms will know how to do it. I’m not afraid of that.”

He added: “If they can arrest my constituents, we can arrest someone else who’s disobeying the law.”

Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., also touted Congress’ “inherent authority,” which she said was “at our disposal.”

“We have a number of steps we’re looking at that we can take,” Jayapal told Politico. “People feel like we’re progressing at the appropriate pace.”

The arrest of Bill Barr would likely set off a storm of controversy over the Capitol, with our national discourse having been forever tainted by the inflammatory infotainment industry and the false dichotomy of “left versus right”.
