Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
After his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee adjourned Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General William Barr’s office announced he is not willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, stating that:
“Unfortunately, even after the attorney general volunteered to testify, Chairman Nadler placed conditions on the House Judiciary Committee hearing that are unprecedented and unnecessary,” Kupec said. “Chairman Nadler’s insistence on having staff question the attorney general, a Senate-confirmed Cabinet member, is inappropriate.”
No doubt that’s the main reason for Barr’s refusal. But, after the circus show trial the Senate Democrats displayed on Wednesday, can anyone blame Barr for not wanting his office to be subjected to what would inevitably be an even more detestable and repugnant display by House Democrats the very next day?
You also can’t help wondering if the fact that the House Judiciary Committee is chaired by a Star Wars villain, Jabba The Nadler, who has zero ability to conduct his committee meetings in anything remotely resembling an orderly process, had something to do with this decision. Perhaps Barr’s staff got a load of the circus that took place in Jabba’s committee while their boss was doing his duty over on the Senate side of Capitol Hill:

All that’s missing there is Princess Leia in a bikini.
Want to know why the Attorney General of the United States is refusing to testify tomorrow? After watching that clown show, can there really be any doubt at all?
That is all.
