     A foolish waste of time.  House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler has sent Attorney General William Barr a counteroffer to his subpoena for access to the underlying documents and redacted portions of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian meddling in 2016 election: comply by Monday at 9 a.m. or the panel could moving to hold Barr in contempt.

     The letter, sent to Barr on Friday, states “the Committee remains willing to negotiate a reasonable accommodation with the Department” and suggested that the department “prioritize a specific, defined set of underlying investigative and evidentiary materials for immediate production.” Nadler, however, asks Barr to reconsider his refusal to let members of Congress view the redacted grand jury material in the report.
