In a face-to-face meeting on Wednesday, at an event at Capitol Hill, Attorney General William Barr asks House speaker if she ”brought her handcuffs” after accusing the senior Trump official of breaking the law just days ago.
” Colleague Jake Gibson rpts 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,” a journalist from Fox News reports.

” 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,” Pelosi told reporters earlier this month. “That’s a crime.”
Last week, a contempt vote was held by the House Judiciary Committee on the Attorney General, after Barr refused to meet with Democrats to further discuss Robert Mueller’s ”no collusion” final report.
” We will have no choice but to move quickly to hold the attorney general in contempt if he stalls or fails to negotiate in good faith,” Mr. Nadler said. “But the attorney general must make a choice. Every one of us must make the same choice. That choice is now an obligation of our office.”
” The choice is simple: We can stand up to this president in defense of the country and the Constitution we love, or we can let the moment pass us by,” he added.
