    A Canadian businessman and failed mayoral candidate was thrown in jail for 30 days after telling a judge he burned 1 million Canadian dollars in cash -- in two separate bonfires -- to avoid paying his wife spousal and child support as part of their divorce settlement, according to a report published Tuesday. In an Ottawa Superior Court hearing last week, Bruce McConville, 55, told a judge he withdrew about 1 million Canadian dollars -- about $750,000 USD -- in 25 separate withdrawals from six separate bank accounts. He claimed he then burned the cash in two bonfires – $743,000...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is prepared to go to court with two "sanctuary cities," New York City, New York, and Denver, Colorado, if they fail to provide personal information on illegal immigrants with criminal records released in each city instead of being transferred to ICE. “We expect them to comply" with subpoenas for the information, said acting ICE Director Matt Albence at a press conference in Washington on Thursday. "If they don’t comply, we’ll be working with DOJ to go to district court to force them to comply with the requirements,” Albence said, noting the rule in the U.S....

    Democrats are pressuring House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) to hold Corey Lewandowski in contempt of Congress after the former Trump campaign chairman stonewalled lawmakers during his testimony earlier in the week. “He operated in contempt of Congress, and yes, I believe he should be” held in contempt. “And I’ve expressed that to the chair,” Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Pa.), a member of the Judiciary panel, told The Hill on Thursday. “The only purpose to do it is to have teeth in it and to send a message to both Mr. Lewandowski that he has to come forth, tell the...

    Washington (CNN)The House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt over a dispute related to the Trump administration's efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The vote was 230-198, largely along party lines. Four Democrats broke with their party and voted against the resolution. One independent -- Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan -- supported the resolution. The vote marks the first time that the full House has voted on criminal contempt of Trump administration officials since Democrats took over the majority. The move is virtually...

    The House of Representatives voted Tuesday to hold Bill Barr and Don McGahn in contempt of Congress. Both President Donald Trump’s attorney general and former White House counsel defied subpoenas from the House Judiciary Committee, and congressional Democrats followed through on threats to hold them in contempt. The lower chamber voted in favor of H. Res. 430 by a margin of 229-191 in what was a party line vote. (RELATED: AG Bill Barr Is Not Worried About His Reputation: ‘Everyone Dies’) Trump administration officials have come under fire for their handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which concluded that...

    DOJ reveals Dems acknowledged Barr subpoena was 'overbroad'; Nadler fires back, offers to meet 'without conditions' Hours after the Department of Justice (DOJ) slammed House Democrats for planning a contempt vote against Attorney General Bill Barr -- and charged that Democrats had privately admitted their subpoena requests were "overbroad" -- House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler announced late Tuesday that he is open to negotiating with the DOJ "without conditions." The remarkable turn of events reopened the possibility that Barr's contempt vote may be postponed or canceled, if both sides return to the negotiating table. Nadler, however, pointedly refused to...

    Facing increasing pressure from the Democratic base to impeach President Donald Trump, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on Tuesday denied he and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lack the "courage" to move forward and threatened a vote next week holding all Trump officials who have defied Congress in contempt. "I hear some people say, 'Well, you guys ought to have the courage to stand up.' What we ought to have the courage to do is pursue in a constitutional way holding accountable any and every person to the responsibilities and acting legally," Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters at the Capitol.

    The House will vote next week to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for declining to comply with a subpoena for special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report and related evidence. The resolution will also target former White House counsel Don McGahn, who has defied a Democratic subpoena to appear before Congress. The vote, scheduled for June 11, marks a major escalation of tensions between the Trump administration and House Democrats, who have launched a series of investigations into the president’s conduct in office — probes in which the White House has largely refused to cooperate. “The Attorney...

    It’s been a while since we checked in on Steven Donziger, the New York City attorney who was the architect of the failed Chevron Shakedown. How are things going for him these days? Well, the first item to note is that I should issue a correction to that first sentence. Donziger has reportedly been disbarred from every place where he was previously allowed to practice law. He can now represent nobody but himself, so is he still technically an attorney? Whether he is or not, he may want some outside representation in the near future. As it turns out, Donziger...

    When Chelsea Manning was released from jail last week after the grand jury she was stonewalling was dismissed, I suggested that she really enjoy some hot food and sleeping in a comfortable bed because she probably wouldn’t be out for long. Well, I hope she took that advice because she’s back behind bars again. And this grand jury is just coming out of the gate and could be in business for most of the year, which means Manning could be in jail for that long as well. But the judge added a twist to the confinement this time. (ABC News)...

    House Democrats are "heading into a world of hurt" if they escalate their fight with Attorney General Bill Barr over access to the full Robert Mueller report, according to constitutional law expert Jonathan Turley. Turley, a George Washington University law professor, issued the warning during testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. As lawmakers grilled him and other legal scholars on issues having to do with executive privilege and congressional oversight, Turley stated that while he generally tends to give weight to congressional power, they are sure to lose if they go to court for the purpose of holding...

    As Democrats push forward with a plan to haul Attorney General William Barr before a federal judge for contempt of Congress, a stunning admission by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler could torpedo that case, legal experts say. The House Judiciary Committee last week took the first step toward holding Mr. Barr in contempt for defying a Congressional subpoena demanding special counsel Robert Mueller’s “full unredacted” report along with all the supporting evidence. Republicans say he even rejected an amendment that sought to carve grand jury information out of the subpoena, issued in March. But Mr. Nadler now says he...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) revealed on Friday that the House is considering revisiting its "inherent contempt" powers that would allow it to fine members of the Trump administration who fail to answer its subpoenas.  That really doesn't necessarily change in an impeachment proceeding where they can fight us likewise but there is another remedy that I think we really need to consider that maybe even quicker than an impeachment proceeding or the court proceeding and that is reviving Congress' inherent power of contempt, something we utilize up until the 1930s where we in effect do our own...

    On Thursday, Attorney General William Barr cracked a joke about the Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee voting yesterday to hold him in contempt. The attorney general made the comment during his remarks at a farewell ceremony for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the Justice Department. Turning to his outgoing No. 2 official, Barr said, "You like records. This must be a record of attorney general being proposed for contempt within 100 days of taking office.” The comment drew laughs from the audience.Barr was joined by other top law enforcement officials in the Trump administration, including former Attorney General Jeff...

    Left-leaning law professor Jonathan Turley -- who has stood out in recent years as a rare legal analyst unwilling to allow his political views to cloud his constitutional judgments -- has written an absolutely devastating column addressing House Democrats' efforts to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress. Anti-Trump partisans have compiled a list of grievances against Barr, many of them specious , but House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler has chosen to focus the contempt charge on the Attorney General's unwillingness to release a tiny redacted fraction of the Mueller report . Turley says this is...

    The House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, escalating a growing feud between Democrats and the Trump administration over special counsel Robert Mueller's report. In a 24-16 vote, Democrats made a formal recommendation that the House hold Barr in contempt for failing to comply with a congressional subpoena for Mueller's full un-redacted report and underlying documents. It’s unclear when the contempt resolution will advance to the House floor for a full vote, though House leaders have expressed support for it. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) backed the contempt resolution...

    House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday that his panel is still planning to vote to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt to Congress, suggesting that a meeting held earlier between committee staff and the Justice Department did not bear fruit. Nadler would not comment on the details of the negotiations with the Justice Department regarding the committee’s demands for special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report, but told reporters Tuesday evening the contempt vote was “still scheduled.” “The only thing I’m going to say is at the moment, it’s still scheduled,” Nadler told reporters when leaving Speaker Nancy...
