Nadler declares 'constitutional crisis' after contempt vote, accuses Trump of attacking 'essence of our democracy'(full title)
House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., declared a "constitutional crisis" on Wednesday, but pushed back on impeachment as an option after his committee voted to hold the attorney general in contempt for defying a subpoena for Special Counsel Robert Muellers unredacted Russia report and underlying documents.
"We've talked for a long time about approaching a constitutional crisis. We are now in it," Nadler told the press on Wednesday. Although he pushed back on impeachment as an option, he indicated that the United States was at a critical time of testing whether it could stay a republic or transition into a tyrannical form government.
Nadler's committee voted along partisan lines to hold Barr in contempt on Wednesday and angered the White House by not delaying the vote. At the same time, the president invoked executive privilege refusing to comply with Congressional subpoenas.
Nadler accused the White House of "stonewalling" the American people and attacking "the essence of our democracy."
"They are uniformly rejecting subpoenas from Congress. This means that they have decided to oppose the role of Congress as a coordinate branch of government representing the American people."

Sh%t or get off the pot.
Impeach or shut up
So, in ahole Nadler’s demented little world, it’s a “Constitutional Crisis” when the Attorney General won’t break federal law and release Grand Jury testimony?
This RAT is a lying fraud.
I'll take door #2, please.
These leftists are the crisis. What a boat load of pinko turds.
If he was in arms length I would punch him in his slimy swarmy geekish skull.
Not sure which is more repulsive him or slimy Da’nag Dick Blumenthal
They say all the fat cells we have stay in our bodies even after we lose a lot of weight.
With Nadler they took up cranial space that was supposed to be occupied by brain cells.
Nadler is a moron and once again he proved it. I have a feeling that Barr will have the last laugh.
Ask him what the Constitution does.
Limits the powers of government.
Fatso knows that “constitutional crisis” is always good for a headline and to put him at the center of attention. I shouted that pig down during a TV interview when he came to Ft. Lauderdale to meddle in the 2000 illegal recount.
"There's a whole lotta projectin' goin' around"
If we’re going to have a crisis, it may as well feature mass hangings of Democrats who are solely responsible for causing the crisis on purpose, with malice and intent.
We are witnessing absolute fear from the democrats. They know they are just days away from having their made up world get destroyed and they can’t deal with it. The only thing for them to do is lash out in panic. History books will be written and possibly movies made about this implosion.
Didn’t Holder also do something similar...and nothing happened.
Revealing your coup is not a constitutional crisis. In a few weeks we will really see one.
How bad do you have to hate America to vote for these traitors?
He was a Democrat with melanin privilege. No controlling legal authority.
I really just want cwii declared so we can get the unpleasant inevitable over with sooner rather than later.
