Witnesses brought to Capitol Bill by Democrats recently delivered a blow to the party’s rhetoric on the attorney general.

Republican Congressman Kelly Armstrong grilled legal experts Wednesday about the subpoena issued to William Barr by the House Judiciary Committee. When pressed on the issue, the witnesses agreed that the subpoena asks Barr to violate the law in order to comply.

The committee voted last week to hold Barr in contempt for refusing to releasing the unredacted report. This forced President Trump to assert executive privilege over the material and any underlying evidence.
