In Nadler vs. Barr, the latter is more likely to find the facts

Kevin Brock:
An anonymous, but wise, Wyoming rancher recently summarized special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in clear middle-America language: “We know that old boy didn’t actually steal any horses, but he’s obviously guilty of trying to avoid being hanged for it.”

The House Judiciary Committee, led by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), wants a hangin’ no matter what. We know they’re serious because they had former Nixon counselor John Dean testify, which had everyone in America under age 60 searching Google. The parallels to Watergate apparently are uncanny in the minds of some. Next up: Maybe Robert DeNiro, since his resemblance to Bob Mueller on "Saturday Night Live" is uncanny, too.

Let’s face it, Congress seems little more than a parody now. The legislative branch of our constitutional government has withered to a thin twig, completely overshadowed by the executive and judicial branches that have far more impact on our lives.

Congress’s popularity hovers just above that of human traffickers. Their job description is to pass important laws and a budget. They’ve done neither, consistently, for years. Immigration, cybersecurity, violent crime and drug trafficking, the environment … basically, crickets. Their constitutional responsibilities to declare war and ratify treaties have been bypassed by the executive branch for decades. We essentially are down to 2.1 branches of government.
The “obstruction of justice by the president” chimera that House members are chasing along party lines pales in comparison to their own corrupt, empty practices. Out of frustration stemming from their evident irrelevance, they are hurling, tantrum-like, subpoenas for personal financial records without legitimate legislative grounds, along with increasing contempt of Congress citations and threats against anyone who won’t buy a ticket to their party politics theater.

Frankly, most Americans hold Congress itself in contempt. We have a finely tuned desire and expectation for justice and fair play constitutionally baked into our DNA. Party politics and committee hearing circuses do not get to the truth or lead to justice; they just serve the power lust of their practitioners.

We would like the truth. A long, expensive investigation by former FBI Director James Comey and the special counsel that came up empty has led to legitimate questions about how all of this got started. The Mueller report has surfaced a concern much greater than fuzzy obstruction of justice issues: Did the intelligence community of the Obama administration initiate an intelligence operation, illegitimately leveraging the immense powers of government, against an opposition party presidential campaign?

If true, that would be far from “fair play.” That would be devastating abuse that should invite reforms to ensure it never recurs. Attorney General William Barr has signaled his intent to examine the origins of the government’s intersections with the Trump campaign and the initiation of a formal FBI counterintelligence investigation by Comey and his hand-picked team.
I think Nadler are part of a Democrat coverup of an unprecedented abuse of power. 
their attacks on Barr are unseemly.  Much of the mainstream media were co-conspirators in this abuse of power.  They continue to be on the side of the abusers.
