Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio went after Democrats in the House on Wednesday for their targeting of Attorney General William Barr for contempt.
Jordan correctly accused Democrats of trying to discredit Barr because he could expose the sleazy actions of the people behind the Russia conspiracy.

Jim Jordan: Dems out to ‘destroy’ Bill Barr and derail his FBI review
House Judiciary Committee Republican Jim Jordan charged at an explosive hearing on Wednesday that Democrats were out to “destroy” Attorney General William Barr as a way to derail the Justice Department’s ongoing review of alleged misconduct by the intelligence community.
Jordan, R-Ohio, asserted that Barr was legally required to withhold portions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in U.S. politics that concerned grand jury information.
Democrats, Jordan said, effectively put Barr in an unwinnable position: He could either release the full Mueller report in violation of the law and federal procedure, or keep the redactions and face a partisan contempt proceeding.
“Bill Barr is following the law, and what’s his reward?” Jordan asked toward the beginning of a hearing on whether to hold Barr in contempt of Congress. “Democrats are going to hold him in contempt.” (By a 24-16 vote, the House Judiciary Committee later did just that.)…
“I don’t think today is actually about getting information,” Jordan continued. “I don’t think it’s about getting the unredacted Mueller report. I don’t think last week’s hearing was actually about having staff question the attorney general. I think it’s all about trying to destroy Bill Barr because Democrats are nervous he’s going to get to the bottom of everything. He’s going to find out how and why this investigation started in the first place.”

William Barr needs to unload both barrels into the Obama spy ring. https://t.co/Omll2v1aZe

Barr hasn’t even gotten started yet and Democrats are in a panic.
What does that tell you?
