House Judiciary votes to hold Barr in contempt of Congress

Barr held in contempt of CongressAfter negotiations with the Department of Justice fell apart, House Democrats on the Judiciary Committee voted to find Attorney General William Barr in contempt for not complying with the panel's subpoenas to provide documents related to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia report.

The vote passed along party lines, 24-16, after six hours of contentious debate on the topic. The contempt resolution will now go to the full House for a vote, where it is expected to pass, given the Democratic majority.

"It is deeply disappointing that elected representatives of the American people have chosen to engage in such inappropriate political theatrics," the Justice Department said in a statement in response to the vote.
