Pelosi says Barr 'lied to Congress' and 'that's a crime' (CNN link): House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that Attorney General William Barr committed a crime when he testified before Congress. "The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States. That's a crime," Pelosi told reporters at her weekly news conference on Capitol Hill.
Barr has come under scrutiny for telling Congress last month that he didn't know whether special counsel Robert Mueller supported Barr's description of the report in his summary.
Pelosi also said Thursday she lost sleep after watching Barr's testimony Wednesday for the Senate Judiciary Committee and argued Barr, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Donald Trump are "handmaidens" to special interests and right-wing ideology.
