A report from Chad Pergram of Fox News claims that Attorney General William P. Barr taunted Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over the House’s threats to charge him with criminal contempt for failing to comply with their subpoena requests.

“Colleague Jake Gibson [reports] AG Barr spoke to Pelosi in person today, after the National Peace Officers Memorial Service at the Capitol. Source says Barr went up to Pelosi & asked her if she brought her handcuffs,” Pergram said on Twitter.

Pelosi has accused Barr of lying to Congress, claiming that he “mischaracterized” the Mueller report when he testified last month. That point is moot, as the report was later released. Still, Democrats are harping on it for political gain.

“What is deadly serious about it is the attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States,” she said at her weekly press conference last Thursday. “That’s a crime.”

Barr has been at odds with the House Judiciary Committee, and refused testify before them last week. He has also refused to hand over a fully unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on “Russian collusion” as requested. Instead, he offered the Committee a less redacted version, which was accepted by Republicans on the Committee, but refused by the Democrats. While the Democrats bloviate about the report, none have read what is contained in the least redacted version available.

After Barr refused to comply, the House of Representatives passed a resolution along party lines holding in contempt of Congress. Threats of criminal charges followed, but based on Barr’s reported interaction with Pelosi Wednesday, the Attorney General does not seem worried.

California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!

That’s a new one!

A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!

Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.

Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”

Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.

An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.

Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.

There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
