William Barr took a shot at Nancy Pelosi that no one saw coming
Democrats stunned Americans when the House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt.
It was an escalation in Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment wars.
But the Attorney General struck back and took a shot at Nancy Pelosi that no one saw coming.
Attorney General William Barr was not fazed by the Democrats’ contempt vote.
In fact, the Attorney General joked about the Democrats’ gesture at retirement ceremony for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
NBC News reports:
Barr was deputy attorney general when Rosenstein first arrived at the Justice Department in 1990.
“In those days, the deputy job was a lot different. But I’ll tell you now, the attorney general job is a lot different also. This must be a record, of an attorney general being proposed for contempt within 100 days of taking office,” Barr said with a smile.
Reviewing Rosenstein’s record, Barr said: “As a law student at Harvard, Rod interned in the U.S. Attorney’s office in the district of Massachusetts, and the acting U.S. Attorney in that office at the time was none other than Bob Mueller. Bob went on to be assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division where Rod was first assigned as an honors program lawyer. Little did we know that we’d be getting the old band back together again.”
Barr even shrugged off the hysterical calls from the fake news media to throw him in jail after the contempt vote.

Barr’s demeanor made it clear this is nothing more than political theater on behalf of the Democrats.
The Attorney General knows this whole temper tantrum over the Mueller report is nothing more than fake outrage designed to advance the ball down the field on impeachment.
