Over the past few months, the DOJ and the House Judiciary Committee have been in an epic gridlock over lack of cooperation. Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler lead a vote on whether or not the committee should hold AG William Barr in contempt of Congress.

Last week, the Justice Department sent a letter to Mr. Nadler offering to continue the negotiations for a more lightly redacted version of the Robert Mueller’s report if Democrats drop the contempt vote for Mr.

Barr.

Jerry Nadler issued a subpoena last month for the completely "unredacted report," a day after the Justice Department released a less-redacted version for Congress to read.

Interestingly, Jerry Nadler rejected the offer from the DOJ:

However, Republicans argue that it is against the law to release a report from a Special Counsel with grand jury testimony and information about ongoing investigations without first redacting the sensitive content.

On May 8, the Democrat committee members voted to hold Barr in contempt of Congress. The House reportedly plans to hold a vote on Monday.

DOJ official Stephen Boyd wrote in a letter that the DOJ offered to reopen negotiations for a less redacted version of the Mueller report. The only parts that will be redacted it the grand jury testimonies.

Additionally, Jerry Nadler has received fierce backlash from the right regarding his subpoenas.

GOP lawmakers are calling his attempts to subpoena the unredacted Mueller report, "illegal." They say that it is unlawful for Barr to release grand jury testimonies.

Moreover, Fox News reported, Thursday, that Doug Collins(R-Ga) told host Bill Hemmer, “We’re seeing a chairman who frankly has shown, in five and a half months, he doesn’t know what he wants." Collins went on to say that Nadler wants to "subpoena anything that walks."

Collins comments come after Nadler, and the House Democrats have subpoenaed the unredacted Mueller report and all the underlined documents that the Mueller team has accumulated during their 2 1/2 year investigation into the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

After the investigation, Robert Mueller concluded that there was no substantial evidence that Trump (or any other American) colluded with Moscow to hinder or sway the 2016 presidential election either way. Mueller also concluded that there wasn't ample evidence to charge Trump with obstruction of justice.

However, Mueller's recent press conference, last week, was enough to cast doubt in the Democrat's minds on what he meant when he made the statement.

Mueller said in the discussion that he would leave that conclusion for Congress to decide.

Both Republicans and Democrats are calling for Nadler to subpoena Robert Mueller for questioning. They feel as though Mueller left two many doubts in everyone's mind.

Mr. Mueller said in the statement that he would not testify before Congress. Jerry Nadler has declined to answer whether or not he will subpoena Mueller, despite the growing criticism.
