Democrats are gearing up for yet another witch hunt.
On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee announced that Attorney General Bill Barr will sit before the panel next month to be grilled on his actions with regard to the Roger Stone case, among other things, the Daily Caller reported.
Democrats have had an issue with AG Barr for some time, and now, they are using his sentence recommendation for Roger Stone to open up a can of worms.
When Barr recalled the initial recommendation of up to nine years for the former Trump associate and issued his own, Democrats threw a hissy fit, with leaders tweeting and calling pressers to express their outrage.
Soon after, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) announced he would be calling Barr in to testify before his panel, with the blessing of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), of course.
For his part, Barr quickly agreed simply because he knows he has nothing to hide.
On the menu
Among the things that Nadler and Dems reportedly want to learn in the upcoming hearing is why Barr did not approve of the recommended sentencing offered by the prosecutors working the case.
Additionally, they’re likely interested in what Trump’s recent tweet about Stone’s harsh sentencing played in all of this.
Also on the menu is the reasoning behind Trump’s recent decision to pull U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu’s nomination for the Department of Treasury. Liu more or less oversaw the case against Stone, so Dems will want to know if this ties into that somehow and is being used to punish her.
Finally, Barr will more than likely be asked about the information Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has been offering up to the Justice Department and Senate committees. Giuliani claims to have a treasure trove of information on Joe Biden, but even Barr has been skeptical of the information since it originated from some very questionable figures in Ukraine.
We can fully expect Barr to give very purposeful and measured answers when he is getting drilled by Democrats, probably frustrating them to no end in the process.
Indeed, based on previous testimony given by Barr, Democrats will be embarrassed — but don’t expect them to lie down after Barr breaks all this down like he is talking to a second grader. Make no mistake about it: the Dems are out for blood, and they are not going to stop until they get it.
