House Judiciary Committee Republican Jim Jordan tore into democrats during an explosive hearing Wednesday, alleging they were out to "destroy" Attorney General William Barr in an effort to derail the Justice Department's review of alleged misconduct by the intelligence community.
Jordan noted that Barr was legally required to withhold portions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian inference in the 2016 election that concerned grand jury information, adding that democrats have effectively put Barr in an unwinnable position: He could either release the full Mueller report in violation of the law and federal procedure, or keep the redactions and face a partisan contempt proceeding.
"Bill Barr is following the law, and what’s his reward?" Jordan asked toward the beginning of a hearing on whether to hold Barr in contempt of Congress. "Democrats are going to hold him in contempt."
The House Judiciary Committee later did just that by a vote of 24-16.
"I don’t think today is actually about getting information," Jordan continued. "I don’t think it’s about getting the unredacted Mueller report. I don’t think last week’s hearing was actually about having staff question the attorney general. I think it’s all about trying to destroy Bill Barr because Democrats are nervous he’s going to get to the bottom of everything. He’s going to find out how and why this investigation started in the first place.”

"God, I cannot wait for Barr to do all his work [investigating democrats]."
"It's going to be really interesting to see how this all pans out. Unfortunately, it's taxpayer money that's being used to do it, which just sucks."
"Yes, however, after two-and-a-half years of investigating collusion, however, I'm glad to see them investigating and looking into how this whole thing got started."
