House Dems to Hold Contempt Vote After AG Barr Misses Mueller Report Deadline

House Dems to Hold Contempt Vote After AG Barr Misses Mueller Report Deadline William Barr missed the 9am Monday deadline to provide Congress the unredacted version of the special counsel's report.

Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee said they intend to hold the vote on Wednesday.

The vote will decide whether or not to hold the Attorney General in contempt of Congress.

Republican members of the committee accused the Democrats of "smearing" Barr.

Last week, the Attorney General declined to testify before the House Judiciary Committee.

The move prompted some Democratic members of the committee to refer to Barr as "chicken." One member brought a bucket of KFC to the proceedings, eating it across from the empty chair intended for the Attorney General.

The House Judiciary Committee has proposed May 15 for Robert Mueller to testify before Congress.
