According to some reports, Attorney General Barr found it so funny to hear that Nancy Pelosi was trying to throw him in jail that he joked about it – to her face!!!
Here’s what he said:
As the showdown between congressional Democrats and the Trump administration drags on, Attorney General William Barr and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi crossed paths at the U.S. Capitol for a few memorable moments on Wednesday, when Barr attempted to score a few political points at Pelosi’s expense.
But Barr’s attempt to playfully taunt the sharp-tongued political veteran quickly backfired.
While officials waited for President Donald Trump to arrive at the 38th annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service on Wednesday morning, Barr and Pelosi engaged in an exchange destined to become an instant Washington classic.
As those seated on the platform waited for the president’s arrival, Barr, who Pelosi accused of committing a crime by lying to Congress, approached her, shook her hand and said loudly, “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?” according to a source who witnessed the conversation.
So yeah, he’s not too worried about her threats.
She mumbled off a response too:
Pelosi smiled and quickly threw some shade back at Barr, indicating that “the House Sergeant at Arms was present at the ceremony should an arrest be necessary,” according to a source who observed the exchange.
Barr chuckled and walked away, according to the bystander.
He’s a brave man to be that close to her face, but also, he’s kind of calling her on the crazy rhetoric coming out of the Democratic party these days. No wonder Trump likes him so much….
