Attorney General William Barr is taking the House Judiciary Committee’s recommendation that he be held in contempt of Congress in stride.
During a farewell ceremony for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday, Barr joked about the his record-breaking experience as head of the Justice Department thus far.
“You like records,” he said, turning to Rosenstein. “This must be a record for an attorney general being proposed for contempt within a hundred days of taking office.”
