Democrats continue to wage war on Donald Trump’s closest advisors.
Now they have Attorney General William Barr in their crosshairs.
And William Barr got hit with one lawsuit that could turn his life upside down.
One of the latest of the Democrats’ legal assaults on the Trump administration is the House Oversight Committee suing Attorney General Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross for documents Trump’s attempt to add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census.
Even though Chief Justice John Roberts stabbed the President in the back to block the question, Democrats are still making this issue a centerpiece of their presidential harassment campaign.
The House Oversight Committee has sued Attorney General William Barr and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross for blocking its investigation into the administration’s decision to forgo adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), who was recently elected as chair of the oversight panel, said she filed the lawsuit because the two departments have not handed over documents related to the squashing of the question.
“Since the Supreme Court ruled against them — and the House of Representatives held them in contempt for blocking the Committee’s investigation — Attorney General Barr and Commerce Secretary Ross have doubled down on their open defiance of the rule of law and refused to produce even a single additional document in response to our Committee’s bipartisan subpoenas,” said Maloney.
“I am filing this enforcement action today because the Trump Administration’s brazen obstruction of Congress must not stand,” she added. “President Trump and his aides are not above the law.”
Democrats just want to tie up the Trump administration in court and in hearings as much as possible.
That way, the administration’s time and staff resources are spread so thin they cannot effectively combat the witch hunt to impeach President Trump.
