Leave it to Democrats to threaten a man with jail time for refusing to subvert federal law.
That’s what House Judiciary Committee Charman Jerry Nadler’s recent threat against Attorney General Bill Barr amounts to.
Nadler’s ultimatum is that Barr will be cited for contempt of Congress unless he pursues a court order permitting a fully unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on the Russia collusion probe.
