House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has announced a date for a vote on whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Donald McGahn in contempt of Congress. On Donald Trump’s orders, McGahn refused to testify to the House Judiciary Committee on his actions as outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report. Attorney General Barr was held in contempt of the committee in early May for his refusal to provide documents associated with that report.

The vote will take place on Tuesday, June 11.

“This Administration’s systematic refusal to provide Congress with answers and cooperate with Congressional subpoenas is the biggest cover-up in American history, and Congress has a responsibility to provide oversight on behalf of the American people,” Hoyer said in a statement Monday night.

We have an administration that won’t turn over legally required documents, ignores and ENCOURAGES ignoring subpoenas, and has taken blatant, obvious lying to a art of one up man ship. If we can’t enforce our basic legalities now, what will this accomplish without any consequences? Because otherwise, these jackasses will just turn it into another Left vs Right fake news clown show bullshit story (ie’ Now on FOX! “The Libtard Lefties got worked up on lies, claimed contempt but NOTHING HAPPENED because there is no Contempt!
