Rep. Steve Cohen has a reputation as a bizarre, extreme, and nasty congressmen. True to form, before Thursday’s hearing, he placed a statue of a chicken in front of the seat Attorney General Bill Barr would have occupied it if the Democrats hadn’t made the conditions untenable. He also put a chicken leg on the seat.
This is what we have in Congress and we wonder why nothing gets done. He has now stepped up the attack.
Rep. Steve Cohen also threatened to have the House Sergeant at Arms find Attorney General Barr on Thursday when he didn’t show. The purpose was to force him to come in and sit for interrogation or to imprison him.
JERRY NADLER THREATENS JAIL AND FINES
On Friday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler sent a letter of warning to the attorney general, after Barr was a no-show on Thursday for testimony because the committee had voted to allow staff lawyers question the AG. He previously said that he wanted to imprison any Trump official who didn’t show up and fine them $20,000 a day.
The letter to Barr said that Democrats will begin contempt proceedings unless the Department of Justice releases the full, unredacted version of the Mueller report. In the letter, Nadler issued a deadline of the morning of May 6 for compliance.
They haven’t even looked at the almost fully redacted version of the Mueller report. And the unredacted report has been offered to select members but they don’t want it. They want it made public which is against the law. Let’s have Nadler locked up for demanding Barr break the law or for obstructing justice.
This is another Nadler stunt.
REP. COHEN WANTS BILL BARR DRAGGED IN OR JAILED
Cohen, in comments made to CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday night, ratcheted up the hate and threats.
“Chairman Nadler talked about moving to contempt proceedings if the Attorney General doesn’t comply. What does that — what would that actually look like?” Cooper asked.
“The Justice Department will not do anything to take a contempt citation from us and enforce it against their boss,” Cohen said. “So you have an impossible situation there and it leaves us no other alternative except to use our sergeant-at-arms and to bring him in. He’s being utterly contemptuous to Congress.”
“You have to have him sit for a hearing and I think you have to have him locked up unless he agrees to participate and come to the hearing,” said Cohen.
“But do you actually believe that you’re going to … that your committee is going to order the Attorney General of the United States to be arrested by the sergeant of arms and put in jail?” a skeptical Cooper asked.
Cohen said he didn’t know. “But we can’t just go to the Justice Department. It is meaningless.”
Cohen admitted that the Judicial Committee had not actually discussed the fascist showdown.
Many Were Not Impressed
So an unarmed glorified clerk is going to walk into the DoJ, where there are hundreds of armed law enforcement officials, and try to drag out their boss because the Crypt Keeper told him to? Yeah, good luck with that…

Communists shouldn’t be threatening our government, they should be hiding and trying to avoid a firing squad. This sh*t has to end, perpetrators of the silent coup need to be arrested, tried and given the most absolute sentence possible. That means members of the house and senate as well.
I say let them subpoena him for the full unredacted mueller report, at that point they are commissioning a crime against U.S. law and are subject to arrest. Then its a matter of whom has more guns, right?
AG Barr was not subpoenaed to testify before this House committee but rather volunteered. Therefore he cannot be arrested, held in contempt of Congress or sanctioned in any way whatsoever, Furthermore Nadler’s decision to have committee lawyers and/or staff members is illegal in an oversight hearing so even if AG Barr had been subpoenaed the would be right to refuse to testify under those conditions. Maybe Democrats ought to read the law for a change instead of writing and imposing new asinine ones. And it would be beneficial to all if Democrats would read and adhere to our Constitution instead of trying to find ways around it.
If one could build houses out of blowhard cards, the radical dims would have sky scrapers of nothingness to work in and live in. Nothing will happen and they will look even more dipsquatish.
Chicken Little Steve Cohen is an example of how low, how to the bottom of the barrel we have scraped in electing people to Congress. He is trash and couldn’t hold Bill Barr’s lawbooks, and he is a legitimate lying POS.. Hopefully, AG Barr will go forward against some of these “Congresspersons” as Co-conspirators in the criminal effort to remove a duly elelected President. Pee and Poop on these so called “Congresspersons”. When asked of “Doc Halliday” if he was after “revenge” he stated: “NO IT’S NOT REVENGE, IT IS A RECKONING”. So Dems hold on to your asses with both hands, (if you can find your ass with both hands)
