House Judiciary Committee votes 24 to 16 to hold AG Barr in contempt

What happens next: The contempt resolution now moves to the full House for consideration.

Barr was held in contempt for not complying with the committee’s subpoena for the unredacted Mueller report and underlying evidence. The contempt vote came after President Trump asserted executive privilege this morning over the materials that the committee had subpoenaed, following through on a threat the Justice Department made last night if the committee moved forward with the contempt vote.
