Pelosi accuses Barr of lying to Congress: "That's a crime"

The Honorable William P. Barr Attorney General of the United States Department of Justice Washington, D.C.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi accuses Attorney General Bill Barr of lying to Congress; reaction and analysis from Chris Wallace, anchor of 'Fox News Sunday'.

In the letter, Nadler wrote to Barr that "Congress's constitutional, oversight and legislative interest in investigating misconduct by the President and his associates can not be disputed".

The Senate testimony was the latest episode in a turnabout in public perception for Barr, whose selection was greeted by some with high hopes that he would return the Justice Department to stability following two years of leadership upheaval.

To this end, Flood believes the special counsel fell short because it did not reach a conclusive decision on obstruction.

Mueller's report released to the public on April 18 said Trump had asked McGahn to fire Mueller as he was investigating suspected Russian interference in the 2016 us election and possible coordination between the Trump campaign members and Moscow officials. The report also detailed a series of actions Trump took to try to impede the investigation.

Barr released a redacted version of Mueller's 448-page report last month. Nadler subpoenaed the entire document a day later.

"It can not go unremarked that, in refusing to comply with congressional oversight requests, the department has repeatedly asserted that Congress's requests do not serve "legitimate" purposes", Nadler wrote.

Republicans in Congress have also dismissed Nadler's efforts as political theater meant to satisfy a progressive voter base that helped give Democrats control of the House of Representatives in last year's midterm election.

Ms Pelosi's accusation came as an influential committee chairman threatened to hold Mr Barr in contempt of Congress.

It was announced Wednesday that Barr would skip Thursday's hearings following a disagreement with the House Judiciary Committee over the questioning he faced.

During a brief Oval Office session with reporters Friday, Trump deferred to Barr about whether Mueller should testify, saying, "I don't know".

"If the department persists in its baseless refusal to comply with a validly issued subpoena, the committee will move to contempt proceedings and seek further legal recourse", the New York Democrat wrote. Barr objected to the terms and did not show up.

Barr made a less redacted version available to select members of Congress but maintained concerns that partisan members might leak classified information as they have been known to do.

She said the Democrats "crashed and burned" on Kavanaugh after he refused to withdraw from the process and now they are calling on Barr to resign.
