DOJ To House Dems “No One Will Force DOJ to Break the Law”

On Wednesday, the Justice Department fired back at House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler for his recommendation that US Attorney General William Barr be held in contempt of Congress regarding his handling of the Mueller report.

“The Attorney General could not comply with the House Judiciary Committee’s subpoena without violating the law,” said the DOJ in a statement.

The DOJ continued, “Chairman Nadler’s actions have prematurely terminated the accommodation process, and forced the president to assert executive privilege to preserve the status quo.

“No one, including Chairman Nadler and his Committee, will force the Department of Justice to break the law,” added the DOJ.

Social media commentary generally agreed with the Justice Department’s stance, denouncing Nadler and Democrats’ continued attacks on AG Barr.
