Pelosi Sang Different Tune AG Holder Was Held in Contempt

The Real Reason Democrats Hate Bill Barr

Trump said it will be up to Barr to decide whether Special Counsel Robert Mueller, author of the report on Russian interference in the 2016 USA election, will testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which wants to hear from him.

Though it was not reported until last week, Mueller soon thereafter wrote a letter to Barr criticizing the attorney general's summary of his report. White House attorney Emmett Flood wrote, in a letter made public Thursday, that Trump's decision to waive privilege for the Mueller investigation did not prevent him from invoking privilege in relation to a congressional investigation.

Standing by their president, Republicans in Congress dismissed as hollow Nadler's rhetoric about Trump's defiance and played down Barr's refusal to attend the House hearing.

And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told the press Barr is a disgrace and a liar.

The less-redacted version of the Mueller report was released April 18, and while it does not conclude whether Trump committed a crime, it states that "it does not exonerate him".

The argument is mostly based on conjecture, with little to no evidence to support the assertions save for the oft-repeated suspicions of Trump's allies that bias infected every aspect of the FBI's conduct during its probes of Trump and Clinton - despite the inspector general's assessment that while some investigators displayed personal bias against Trump, the investigation was credible.

Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, concluded there was insufficient evidence to show a criminal conspiracy and opted not to make a conclusion on whether Trump committed obstruction of justice, but pointedly did not exonerate him.

The House GOP has sided with Trump and Barr for defying the subpoena for the full Mueller report and grand jury information, with Rep. It emerged on Tuesday, however, that when Barr said this, he was already in possession of a 27 March letter from Mueller outlining the special counsel's frustrations. Trump needed an attorney general who would take his side when Mueller investigation ended.

Another way Democrats can help President Trump win a second term is to continue to focus on congressional investigations and impeachment rather than addressing important political issues our nation faces, like border security, healthcare and the economy.

While Graham is not planning on having Mueller testify, the House Judiciary Committee is working to secure his appearance later this month, with May 15 as a target date, though it's yet to be finalized.

Pelosi also said she lost sleep after watching Barr's testimony Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, adding she later "connected the dots" linking Barr, senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and president Donald Trump. She stopped short of suggesting prosecution, but some lawmakers say Mr. Barr should be impeached and removed from office.

Nadler has threatened to hold Barr in contempt.

Barr hesitated before acknowledging that presidential campaigns that are offered dirt from hostile foreign governments should probably contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation, unlike Donald Trump, Jr.'s "I love it".

In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Barr said Mueller's letter was a "bit snitty".
