House To Vote On Holding Barr In Contempt Of Congress

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler has scheduled a Wednesday vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress.

CNN reports the move comes after the Justice Department declined to provide an unredacted version of the Mueller report to Congress.

The vote marks the first time that House Democrats are moving to punish a Trump administration official for defying a congressional subpoena.

It also represents a dramatic escalation in tensions between Democrats and the White House.
