As you know, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, has claimed that there’s a “constitutional crisis” going on, and Nancy Pelosi agrees. Meanwhile, Brit Hume is shaking his head at the reason:
This tiny slice of the Mueller report has Jerry Nadler declaring a “constitutional crisis.” What a farce. https://t.co/7MLRliIxzX

A “farce” indeed:

And does anybody really think the Dems would be acting any differently if there were no redactions?
And if AG Barr has released the full, unredacted report, I have no doubt they would be screaming, “Barr broke the law (by giving us what we asked for)!!”
… Which would be the first truth uttered by the 116th Congress.

There is nothing that could happen at this point that the Dems wouldn’t consider a “constitutional crisis.”
What is Nadler’s problem? He and his committee can access 99% of the report at the Justice Dept. But he wants Barr to physically bring him a copy? Sorry Jerry. This is nothing more than political shenanigans. https://t.co/3JuJSR1VAT

“Political shenanigans” should be Nadler’s legal name.
Editor’s note: The opening sentence has been corrected because it originally listed Nadler as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which of course should have said the House Judiciary Committee.
