McConnell said Democrats are "grieving" the result.
Nadlersubpoenaed the full, unredacted Mueller report and its underlying evidence from the Department of Justice. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein subsequently concluded that Trump did not break the law.
If approved by the House, where the Democrats hold a solid majority, the contempt resolution would nearly certainly move to an unusual, and potentially protracted, multi-pronged court battle with the Trump administration.
"Bill Barr is following the law and what's his reward?"
LEMON: So, listen, this is all about getting that unredacted - the full unredacted Mueller report. "He's going to find out how and why this investigation started in the first place".
Both incidents are the latest episodes in an escalating fight between the Republican president and Democrats, who control the House of Representatives and are seeking documents and testimony relating to various investigations, ahead of the 2020 presidential election in which Trump is seeking a second four-year term.
Nadler continued to defend the Congress role in in holding the administration accountable. Republicans portrayed the majority as angry and lashing out at Barr after the special counsel did not find that Trump colluded with Russian Federation to swing the 2016 election.

The contempt citation against Barr will need to be approved by the full House in order to proceed with enforcement, which will likely lead to a court battle.
Executive privilege is a right claimed by presidents to withhold information about internal executive branch deliberations from other branches of government.
And given the nature of the situation, the argument could very easily be made that the executive branch has alreadymore than upheld its constitutional obligations to Congress' implied oversight powers by its repeated offers to allow leaders from both parties from both chambers to come and view the document, minus the secret grand jury information.
Nadler said that President Donald Trump had refused to hand over a single sheet of paper that has been requested, and the president has declared publicly that the executive branch will resist all subpoenas.
U.S. Attorney General William Barr testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee May 1, 2019 in Washington, DC. The White House has rejected all efforts to probe Trump's business dealings or tax returns as well as the West Wing's security clearance procedure.
