House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler threatened Thursday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena to produce the full Mueller report and its underlying evidence. The move came a day after Barr announced he'd skip the Judiciary Committee's Thursday hearing on the special counsel's report. Meanwhile, in a press conference House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Barr of committing a crime by lying to Congress. We'll discuss the latest developments, as tensions between Democrats and the Justice Department escalate.
