Barr asks Pelosi "DID YOU BRING YOUR HANDCUFFS?" (AP) yesterday

Barr asks Pelosi at event: ‘Did you bring your handcuffs?’
By LAURIE KELLMAN
yesterday [5/16/19

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General William Barr tried out a little contempt humor on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with interesting results.

The setting was the National Peace Officers Memorial Day service Wednesday at the U.S. Capitol.

Barr approached Pelosi, shook her hand and said loud enough to be overheard, “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?” That’s a reference to Barr’s refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

A smiling Pelosi let Barr know the House Sergeant at Arms was present at the ceremony, should any arrest be necessary, according to a person who witnessed the exchange and described it on the condition of anonymity. Barr chuckled and walked away, this person said.

2. "They" have outright contempt for the rule of law, clean elections, and or just decency.

Barr is acting like Hermann Goering.

4. Barr would be a lousy lawyer if he weren't already a lousy lawyer

Never ask a question you don't know the answer to... right?
He asked a snarky question and walked right into a wallop of a response by our good Speaker.
Idiot.

21. He knew the answer

He wasn't arrested.

She had a great response, but no one is under any illusion that he was in real danger of being arrested.

10. The next president, after firing him, should set up an independent investigation into Barr

and after finding he obstructed justice cancel his pension.

14. When the time comes,

I hope she shows up with a pair of gold plated handcuffs.

Of course, that would have to be after he is convicted and on his way to jail. We can't have his trial tainted ahead of time. They don't play fair, but we have to.

15. His arrogance is breathtaking but it will only grow

If we don’t enforce the subpoenas and now. Inaction is not an option. Simply raging about how they’re acting imperiously like would be dictators, which they are, is a pathetic response. ENFORCE THE SUBPOENAS NOW!!!! Find the fuckers in contempt and impose daily fines of 100k or more and if need be arrrest the fuckers. Congress’s constitutional powers, and by extension, the survival of our democracy depends on it!

18. And that emboldens them.

They are lawless thugs and understand only one thing strength, from which they cower when confronted with a strong response , so bring it already or this is going to get exponentially worse.
