"The AG still has time to change his mind," said Rep. Val Demings (D-FL). "Otherwise, we will hold him in contempt.'
"We gave him every opportunity to cooperate," said Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), who was mocked by Saturday Night Live for bringing a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken to a hearing last week when Barr refused to testify.
If the committee approves a resolution finding the Attorney General in contempt, it would then move to the full House for a vote.
If the House approves that - nothing may happen - as we only have to look back a few years to the Obama Administration, when the GOP House was embroiled in a dispute over the Fast and Furious scandal, and held Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt.
Back then, the Justice Department refused to prosecute Holder - the same type of scenario would likely happen with regards to Barr in this instance as well.
Democrats have set a 10 am meeting on Wednesday in the House Judiciary Committee on the contempt citation.
