ALPHA: AG Barr Taunts Pelosi Over Possible Contempt Charges, Report Says

Barr does not seem worried about the threat of criminal contempt charges.

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.
