Clearly, the House Democrats are saying that if Trump wants a fight, a fight is what he will get.

The House Judiciary Committee announced Monday that it plans to begin contempt proceedings against Attorney General Bill Barr on Wednesday after he failed to produce a full, unredacted copy of the Mueller report to the committee.
Barr had until 9 a.m. on Monday morning to comply with a subpoena from the committee. In announcing the decision, House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said, “The Attorney General’s failure to comply with our subpoena, after extensive accommodation efforts, leaves us no choice but to initiate contempt proceedings in order to enforce the subpoena and access the full, unredacted report.”
I have every reason to think that Barr will not comply and this will turn into a long and protracted fight.
In fact, I think every attempt to get records or testimony from Trump Administration officials is going to turn into a long and protracted fight.
At this point, it is quite clear that Trump’s only strategy is to stonewall as long as possible.
