AG Barr and the Dems have not been on the best of terms ever since he stole away their dreams of impeaching Trump with the truth. They were even more upset that he didn’t give them first stab when it came to reporting the results. They had no chance to spin it. Pelosi and House Dems recently claimed AG Barr is in contempt of Congress.
“Barr approached Pelosi, D-Calif., at a National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day event outside the Capitol, shook her hand and said loudly, “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?” a bystander told NBC News.
Pelosi — who will be scheduling the contempt vote against Barr before the full House — smiled, and indicated that the House sergeant-at-arms was present at the ceremony should an arrest be necessary, the bystander said. Barr chuckled and walked away.”
“But while Pelosi has not outright called for his arrest, the speaker has claimed that the attorney general lied to Congress.
“He lied to Congress. And if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime,” Pelosi told reporters last month. “Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States. Not the attorney general.
“There is a process involved here and as I said, I’ll say it again, the committee will have to come to how we will proceed,” Pelosi said.
“Speaker Pelosi’s baseless attack on the Attorney General is reckless, irresponsible and false,” Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said in response.”
Pelosi has joked about having a jail cell in the basement of the Capitol but it is clear that they have no intentions of using it. It looks like A.G. Barr has shown that the Dems are all bite when it comes to their contempt charges.
