WASHINGTON — 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 and Pelosi were in the crowd waiting for President Donald Trump to arrive.
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.
