House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday at a Washington Post event that she believes Attorney General Bill Barr should be held in contempt of Congress over his refusal to provide the House Judiciary Committee with an unredacted copy of the Mueller report.

The big picture: Pelosi specifically cited Barr's refusal to comply with a House Judiciary subpoena for the unredacted version of the report as the basis for these contempt proceedings, saying it was separate from other issues — like his refusal to testify before the committee last week as well as allegations that he lied during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, which Pelosi later called a crime.

Watch Pelosi's full remarks:

What's next: House Judiciary is set to begin its contempt proceedings against Barr during a 10 a.m. meeting.

President Trump tweeted on Friday that his administration is "going a different way" with coronavirus aid after negotiations with congressional Democrats stalled again, suggesting he will use an executive order to address stimulus spending.

What he's saying: "Pelosi and Schumer only interested in Bailout Money for poorly run Democrat cities and states. Nothing to do with China Virus! Want one trillion dollars. No interest. We are going a different way!" Trump tweeted.

Trump's swift, sweeping China offensive

President Trump's rhetoric on China has tended to run hotter than his actions — until now.

Why it matters: Even at the height of Trump's trade war, his administration never hit China as hard, as fast, and on as many fronts as it is right now.
