A Democratic US Congressional Committee Chairman, Jerrold Nadler, has pronounced that he may hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress, if he does not hand over a complete version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election.

The warning came as Barr failed to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, prompting Democrats to threaten enforcement proceedings to compel his appearance while Republicans angrily denounced the proceedings as partisan and unfair. “We will have no choice but to move quickly to hold the attorney general in contempt if he stalls or fails to negotiate in good faith,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler said this at the beginning of a brief meeting held in place of Barr’s testimony on Thursday.

Barr cancelled his scheduled Thursday appearance before the House panel over what the Justice Department described as “unnecessary” changes to the format of the hearing. The changes included an extra hour of proceedings to allow committee lawyers to question Barr – conditions Republicans said were unfairly designed to create the image of an impeachment proceeding against the president.
