Democrats seek proceedings against Barr

In the dispute over the investigation report to the Russia affair, want to initiate the opposition of the US Democrats, a parliamentary procedure against the Minister of justice, Bill Barr for contempt of Congress. The Chairman of the judiciary Committee in the house of representatives, Jerry Nadler, justified this on Monday in Washington that Barr would refuse to continue the Congress a Version of the report by special investigator Robert Mueller without the blackened passages.

The Minister had on Monday, a binding of its Committee deadline for submission of the report, in its raw Form to elapse, said Nadler. Therefore, no other choice to remain his body as to start to enforce the Barr's request, the proceedings for contempt. A Resolution to adopt the Democrat-dominated judiciary Committee, according to Nadler on Wednesday.

Multiple Sabotage Attempts

Barr is for his handling of the Mueller Report, the Democrats massively criticized. He assessed the report as a comprehensive relief for President Donald Trump.

Mueller had, however, found in his nearly two years of investigation, no sufficient evidence of a conspiracy of the Trump Teams with Russia during the election campaign of 2016 - from the suspicion of obstruction of Justice but he is not relieved to the President expressly. The special investigator, described, rather, a lot of times Trumps Attempts to sabotage the investigation into the Russia-contacts of his team.

The procedure for contempt of Congress, to decide at the end of the plenary session of the house of representatives - where Democrats are in the majority - a formal condemnation of the Minister. Such a conviction can have - in theory at least, penalties, such as fines or even an arrest. It could, however, actually give such penalties for the Minister of justice, is due to various legal and practical hurdles to be exceedingly doubtful. (afp/red)
