2. AFAIK it will have to go to court. no consequences for some time if at all.

Though I suppose if the court sides with the Democrats and issues an order and then Barr refuses he is facing criminal contempt....maybe.

3. I believe there will be...

none. Republicans love him. They think Obama and Hillary set up a coup - and hope Barr puts them both in prison.

4. He will give the Democrats the middle finger.

In response the Democrats will yell at him and tell us what a bad person he is.

9. Getting disbarred doesn't require a burden of proof consistent with criminal court cases.

Unethical conduct is all that's needed. The DC Bar, like all of them, has standards for professional conduct. Lying to Congress is one alleged offense; refusing to honor a Congressional subpoena is quite another. Bar made a big mistake for committing the latter. That's how he could get his license pulled.

6. It's too soon,

 

keep your powder dry. Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes.

Hearings are going swimmingly, we got 3 retired people to question about how bad Trump is.

What are the consequences for John Dowd, caught on tape, offering a bribe, offering a pardon, witness tampering, obstructing justice with Michael Flynn? Shouldn't that be grounds for at least disbarment?
