uring the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day event at Capitol Hill, Attorney General William Barr asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) if she brought her “handcuffs” for him after she accused him of lying to Congress earlier this month, according to the Free Beacon.
The Beacon reports:
According to multiple reporters, Barr approached Pelosi following the National Peace Officers Memorial Service in Washington, shook her hand, and asked, “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?” Pelosi smiled and said the House Sergeant at Arms was present if an arrest was necessary, to which Barr laughed and walked away.
Last week, Democrats voted to hold Barr in contempt of Congress for failing to hand over the unredacted Mueller report.
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) ripped into his colleagues for the vote, claiming Democrats were afraid that Bill Barr would expose the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.
“I don’t think today is actually about getting information. I don’t think its about getting the unredacted Mueller report. I don’t think last week’s hearing was actually about having staff question the Attorney General. I think it’s all about trying to destroy Bill Barr because Democrats are nervous he’s going to get to the bottom of everything,” he said. “He’s going to find out how and why this investigation started in the first place.”
ongressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said yesterday that he will issue as many as two dozen criminal referrals to the Department of Justice relating to misconduct during the Trump-Russia investigation.
“The American people need to have confidence in the FBI and the Department of Justice. So, we are working on the referrals,” the California congressman said to Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “There’s going to be many of them. There are going to probably at least be a dozen if not two dozen individuals, and as we continue to get more information and build these and build them out, we want to make sure that everything is finished before we turn them in.”

“There are people who definitely lied and misled Congress, OK? So if they don’t go to prison we’re going to have a two-tiered…justice system in this country and it is not going to be good for the American people.”

ongressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) will send the Department of Justice his criminal referrals on several individuals connected to the investigation of the Trump campaign “in one or two weeks,” the congressman’s spokesman confirmed to the Epoch Times
The Congressman told Breitbart on March 27 that it was time to go on offense and “track down” the “dirty players” in the corrupt Trump investigation.
“We knew this was a joke from the beginning, and I’ve said as much for a long time,” Nunes said in response to the Mueller report conclusions. “Basically, from the time our report came out, which has been a year. But now, the real work begins. It’s good to not have that sitting out there. But we have to now go on offense and track down all these dirty cops and bad players.”
Nunes specified that the criminal referrals will be sent to DOJ in one letter.
“As of now, it’ll be one criminal referral, but with multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” Nunes told Breitbart. “We will have some leakers in there, for sure.”
The Times points out that Nunes believes Attorney General Barr will act on his criminal referrals and that the Congressman told Fox News the crimes involve lying to Congress.
“There’ll be things in there that cannot be ignored. There will be crimes. So they have to be dealt with,” he said.

lawyer for the Maltese professor who told former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos that the Russians had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton says his client will testify in front of the Senate.
BuzzFeed reports that Stephan Roh, attorney for Professor Joseph Mifsud, wrote in an email that Mifsud “is to testify in front of the US Senate — we are working towards his appearance.”
Lawyers for the Democratic National Committee wrote in a September court filing for their Russia lawsuit that they believed Mifsud was “missing and may be deceased.”
According to the Daily Caller, an attorney for Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee reached out Roh on Oct. 24, hoping to obtain an interview with Mifsud. The mysterious professor hasn’t been seen in public since November 2017, after Papadopoulos entered a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office.
Papadopoulos was named a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign in March 2016. He traveled to Italy where he met Mifsud, a professor of diplomacy based in London.
On April 26, 2016, Mifsud met with Papadopoulos in London and told him he had damaging information from the Russians on Hillary Clinton–something Mifsud now denies ever saying.
It was Papadopoulos’ contact with Mifsud which helped trigger the FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia.
