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.
