Democrats have accused Barr of misleading Congre

ss by testifying in April that he did not know whether Mueller agreed with his initial characterization of the report – failing t

o mention a March 27 letter from the special counsel complaining that Barr’s initial public summary did not “ful

ly capture the context, nature and substance of this Office’s work.” Several Democrats have called on him to resign.

Nadler had set a Wednesday deadline for Barr to hand over the unred

acted report and its underlying evidence. Barr canceled his testimony after clashing wit

h Nadler over the hearing’s format. Nadler said he will move forward with a contempt citation as soon as Monday.

“The very system of government of the United States – the system of l

imited power, the system of not having a president as a dictator – is very much at sta

ke,” Nadler told reporters after a 15-minute committee session held in place of Barr’s appearance.

The best part of his speech was when he urged we

 maintain the overall balance of Earth’s ecology so the starry sky, lush mountains and floral fragr

ance will be retained for future generations, who will enjoy material prosperity at the same time.

Lucid waters and lush mountains are invalua

ble assets. Improving the ecological environment is increasing productivity.

We should embrace simple, moderate, green and low-carbon ways of life, and reject extravagance and waste of resources.

It is also worth mentioning he vowed only with concerted efforts can we effectively deal wit

ution to protecting heritage. She recommends that countries work in close cooperation with experts.
