The House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress. The move came after Barr failed to provide the unredacted version of the Mueller report. The White House has said that they'll invoke executive privilege to prevent Congress from seeing other documents related to the Mueller investigation. Also, Iran's president said Tehran will stop complying with portions of the nuclear deal the U.S. pulled out of a year ago. And, drivers for Uber, Lyft and other app-based ride services are striking to demand higher wages and fixes to a business model that they say exploits workers. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's May 8, 2019 full broadcast.
