Lawfare Strategy – Pelosi House Sets Contempt Vote Against AG Barr for June 11th

Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are structuring a contempt vote against U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr for next week, June 11th. As part of the current construct, the Lawfare alliance of legal advisers and staff are writing specific language into the vote that will automatically allow more contempt votes against the Trump administration without hearings.

Their collective goal is to use a legislative vote to open a civil lawsuit against Bill Barr for his failure to deliver the fully unredacted Mueller report to them. Additionally, the contempt vote will be written so that any other arbitrary Trump administration official can also be held in contempt, without a committee vote, and thereby initiate a civil lawsuit against the executive officer that will have to be defended in court
quote:

WASHINGTON DC – The House will vote next week to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with a subpoena for special counsel Robert Mueller’s fully unredacted report and underlying evidence, according to multiple Democratic sources.

The resolution would clear the way for the House Judiciary Committee to take Barr to court to enforce its subpoena and settle the matter legally — a crucial step for Democrats seeking to accelerate their obstruction of justice investigation against President Donald Trump.

The vote, which will take place on June 11, will also include broad authority for congressional committees to take legal action against the Trump administration in future subpoena fights, the Democratic sources say. Democrats are still discussing whether to include former White House counsel Don McGahn in the resolution.

Pelosi and the Lawfare group are avoiding a criminal contempt process because that would require the DOJ to participate. Instead lawyers working on behalf of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, HPSCI Chairman Schiff, and/or White House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings will sue the Trump administration in civil court.

If they can win a civil award (they will carefully select the judge) Pelosi and Nadler can start issuing civil fines for contempt against individual cabinet members. Adam Schiff has previously stated his recommended target amount would be $25,000 per day/per person.

Now go back to December 2018 and the specific rule changes that Pelosi put in place, and you’ll see how this was planned out long ago. This lawfare approach, including every aspect of the Mueller probe and the delivery of the Weissmann report therein, is all part of one carefully planned continuum of activity. By design at the end of their plan is the official impeachment investigation.

quote:

Washington, D.C. –The House Judiciary Committee will continue hearings focused on the alleged crimes and other misconduct laid out in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. The next hearing entitled “Lessons from the Mueller Report: Presidential Obstruction and Other Crimes” will take place on June 10th. The hearing will feature former White House Counsel John Dean as well as former U.S. Attorneys and legal experts. The Committee also plans to consider targeted legislative, oversight and constitutional remedies designed to respond to these matters. (read more)
See how it is all sequenced, timed and connected?

This has been their plan all along. Pelosi’s poo-pooing of impeachment was always a head-fake to the compliant media, designed to fabricate a narrative around unlikely impeachment, and throw people off the scent of a plan that was designed even before the mid-term election of 2018.
quote:

After the 2018 mid-terms, and in preparation for the “impeachment” strategy, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler hired Lawfare Group members to become committee staff. Chairman Schiff hired former SDNY U.S. Attorney Daniel Goldman (link), and Chairman Nadler hired Obama Administration lawyer Norm Eisen and criminal defense attorney Barry Berke (link), all are within the Lawfare network.

[IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that Speaker Pelosi has selected former insider DOJ official Douglas Letter to be the Chief Legal Counsel for the House. That becomes important when we get to the part about new powers granted to the House Counsel.]

The Pelosi House rules clearly present the outline for an impeachment calendar as directed by changes to the oversight committees. Additionally, there is a myriad of new processes which appear to have been developed through the Lawfare alliance. Here’s some of the overview (full pdf)

Normally/traditionally House Counsel represents the interests of the entire Legislative Branch on any issue that might surface. However, Pelosi is setting up a legal activist agency within the House Counsel that will specifically “advocate” for Democrat priorities, against the position of the U.S. Department of Justice, and use taxpayer funds to finance the scheme.

Speaker Pelosi is creating her own mini DOJ (the Lawfare alliance) inside the legislative branch. And, with additional investigative powers granted to House committees, we might even see a mini-FBI units, dispatched to conduct investigations, accountable only to speaker Pelosi. Heck, considering congress already has subpoena power, there’s no telling where this might end.

I thought about posting this today.

I read this this morning and was amazed by it.

This will be another overreach the left will cheer now, but regret later.

Pelosi is playing with matches in a fuel dump.
She is trying to walk the fine line between libtards like AOC and Maxine and real world politics. I expect her to die of self-immolation.

I believe this is why Pelosi went on late night TV and said Trump will be impeached in/by 2020. Just like she went on late night TV and said she shall get the gavel back (They gerrymandered/redistricted PA. and held their nose & took in a lot of moderate right democrats to win the gavel back.)

I realize the OP is extensive but the point is they are circumventing everything and are using Comey's BFF's Lawfare weeny group of Weissmann type lawyers.

Political junkies will barely read this, so every day Joe blows have no clue.

Been meaning to tell you. Go to CNET.com and re download firefox browser. Go in your settings (Three solid lines far right) click options and TURN OFF automatic updates of firefox. If you do not update you can still do screenshots. (June 1 they took away cloud screenshots.)

This is what Marxist lawyers do.

The faster we get rid of them, the better our country will be. You have to break some eggs sometimes.

What’s funny is that Pelosi is considered a moderate by the left. Let that sink in for a minute

Sounds unconstitutional. A single party of one of the houses of the Legislative branch create for itself a standing executive type agency to ‘prosecute’ civilly its political opponents in another branch of government whose actual job it is to prosecute crimes and enforce the laws?

Are the Dems really willing to shred the Constitution this way in order to reinvestigate the possible obstruction of an investigation conducted by an ostensibly non-partisan Special Counsel which was in fact a group of partisan Dems - the same group of lawyers who are now trying to re-open the investigation (Lawfare)?

Bitch could drop dead 10 minutes from now and I would make a toast and salute the flag. These people are corrupt to the core.

They also know what's coming.

I disagree.

I think she's all in on this plan.

The "fighting the extremists in her party" trope is a media creation for deflection purposes

The litmus test for anyboiwer gray like this should be “are you OK with the other party having the same power”

For the record I think the Rs played politics with Fast & furious and Benghazi. It may have started out legitimate but in the end the politicians on the committee wanted to stretch it out and get camera bites

Dems have have said hold my beer. And are going a whole new level of political Washington grandstanding. With the hope the the media can sell their charade to the public

I don’t think it will play out like they think......

Of course they are. Their disdain for Trump may be unprecedented in American politics. Any means necessary is not a joke, they mean it.
