Boom Chakalaka Boom !!!

Mean while the WAH with the HOOOSE ... is heatin up !

Quote:
... Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., was one of the first calling for the House to pursue “inherent contempt,” which would have Barr arrested by the sergeant at arms—a tactic reportedly not employed since the 1930s.

Several other lawmakers, including Reps. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., and Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., have warmed to the idea.

“We know how to arrest people around here,” Raskin told Politico. “And if we need to arrest someone, the [House] sergeant-at-arms will know how to do it. I’m not afraid of that.”
...

“We do have a jail in the basement of the Capitol, but if we were arresting all of the people in the administration, we would have an overcrowded jail situation,” Pelosi said ...


Per Wyatt Erp in Tombstone ... "I don't think I'll let you arrest us today." I wonder if Barr will use that line :D

Calling for the arrest of opposition party members simply because they are opposition party members: New Totalitarian Tribalists devolving . . .

They seem to be largely beyond reform at this point, and clearly there is no "going back" to the vague semblance of a "normal opposition" party ca. 2011 or even 2014. Their smug authoritarian self-importance and perceived requirement to brandish it for public relations effect have overpowered any shreds of sense, reason, balance or pragmatism they might have had.

So now the senior administration officials will run around town with their own poo leece forces escorting them ... and if any hooose poo leece try to arrest them ... it will be one poo leece force against the other ... they might finally get to earn their pay !!! :D

If you ask me .. .none of those entities should have any poo leece forces ... they last time we looked at this I think we came up with about 200 federali poo leece forces .. .that's 200 too many in my book .. and look what it can lead too ...

When the House Sgt at Arms tries to arrest Barr he can tell him "I'm the General at Arms"

Barr teases Pelosi, asks if she brought her handcuffs on sidelines of DC event

Bill Barr did not mince words about his brawl with House Democrats when he ran into Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday on the sidelines of a Capitol Hill event.

According to a source close to the attorney general, Barr approached her in a holding tent after the National Peace Officers Memorial Service and asked whether she had brought her handcuffs.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics ... spartanntp


Quote:
“He lied to Congress. And if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime,” Pelosi told reporters last month. “Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States. Not the attorney general.
Pelosi’s public comments came after she, according to Politico, told Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., during a private caucus meeting Thursday: “We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question.”
She was referring to an April 9 hearing, where Crist had asked whether Barr knew what prompted reports that prosecutors on the special counsel team were frustrated with his initial summary. Barr said he did not.
But earlier this month, The Washington Post first reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller contacted Barr, both in a letter and in a phone call, to express concerns after Barr released his four-page summary of Mueller’s findings in March. Mueller pushed Barr to release the executive summaries written by the special counsel’s office. However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel that Barr’s summary was inaccurate. Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.


That's it? How was Barr supposed to answer a question asking if "he knew what prompted reports"? He's not in their heads. The honest answer to that question IMO is: "the desire to get more clicks". We still don't know what Mueller felt was "misinterpreted" re: obstruction but it's safe to say that the media has it wrong once again.

AFAIC lying to Congress shouldn't be a crime, it should be encouraged. I can not recall a time when I felt justice was being served seeing someone sit and be grilled by that Parliament of Whores. It's all political theater no matter what side you're on. Other than occasionally ruining a decent person's reputation it never amounts to anything.
