William Barr walked up to Nancy Pelosi and what he said will leave you speechless
William Barr and Nancy Pelosi finally had a face-to-face confrontation.
It happened just days after Pelosi and the Democrats threatened Barr with jail time by voting to hold him in contempt of Congress.
But then Barr walked up to Nancy Pelosi and what he said will leave you speechless.
Attorney General Barr and Nancy Pelosi came face-to-face at the annual Peace Officers Memorial Service at the Capitol.
This took place just days after the House voted to hold Barr in contempt for not breaking the law by turning over the unredacted Mueller Report.
Fox News producer Josh Gibson reported Barr walked up to Pelosi and jokingly asked the Speaker if she had her handcuffs ready.
Pelosi chuckled and told Barr the House Sergeant at Arms was nearby.
The Daily Caller reports:
Attorney General William Barr reportedly took a jab at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday as the two crossed paths at the annual Peace Officers Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol.
Barr, according to Fox News producer Jake Gibson, joked with the Democratic Party leaderabout the upcoming contempt vote and threats to jail him if he failed to comply with subpoenas that demand the full and unredacted Mueller report.
“Attorney General Bill Barr spoke to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in person today, after the National Peace Officers Memorial Service at the Capitol,” Gibson tweeted. “A source close to Barr says he asked Pelosi if she had brought her handcuffs. There was laughter but no word on Pelosi’s response.”
This episode showed that even Pelosi knows the Democrats’ quest to jail Barr is futile and they have run up against a brick wall.
This will infuriate rank-and-file Democrats who want total war on the administration.
But they will have to accept defeat on the Barr contempt matter in the same way Pelosi did.
