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.

Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol

Guilt by association.

Published

on

Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.

Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.

Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.

Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
