William Barr besieged by allegations of being President Trump's protector

April FrancisMay 04, 2019

"Please inform the Committee if you would like to provide testimony regarding any misrepresentation by the Attorney General of the substance of that phone call", Graham writes.

She said no one should be surprised by what Barr is experiencing, as Democrats refuse to admit they were wrong with their allegations of Trump-Russia collusion.

"Being the attorney-general does not give you a badge to say whatever you want and it is a fact because you are the attorney-general."

Testifying before the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Barr said Mueller told him he did not think Barr's four-page summary of Mueller's conclusions was inaccurate, but rather that Mueller was unhappy with the media coverage of Barr's summary when he sent a letter objecting to the characterization of the special counsel report.

The 2016 presidential candidate scornfully pointed out that, in line with the Mueller report, in the hypothetical scenario, if all IRS offices were to be bombarded with sophisticated cyber tools looking for Trump's tax returns and then they start being disclosed, there should be nothing wrong with that.

Wallace was referring to efforts to have staffers - and not just sitting members of Congress - question Barr at a House hearing Thursday regarding his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Trump-Russia investigation.

At the White House, speaking to reporters, Trump was asked whether he would let Mueller testify to the Senate panel.

Congress could be too weak to force President Donald Trump's administration to cooperate with their various investigations, according to The Washington Post.

The Justice Department declined to comment on the new letter. Democrats were outraged, with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. threatening to hold him in contempt of Congress. The report also detailed a series of actions Mr Trump took to try to impede the investigation.

Ms Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, accused Mr Barr of lying about his interactions with Mr Mueller after the special counsel concluded his 22-month investigation into Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 United States election to boost Mr Trump's candidacy. He said Mueller "was very clear with me that he was not suggesting that we had misrepresented his report". Nadler narrowed his offer in a new letter to Barr on Friday, saying the committee would limit its request for underlying materials to those directly cited in the report.

"I do not believe Attorney General Barr lied", said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.
