Pelosi says Barr 'lied to Congress' and 'that's a crime'

Mod: Maybe Barr should be impeached first? Is that what Mueller had in mind by making his letter public?

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.

The Justice Department disputed Pelosi's description minutes after her comments were made. "The baseless attack on the Attorney General is reckless, irresponsible and false," Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said.

Pelosi was asked again during the question and answer part of the news conference if Barr committed a crime and if he should go to jail. She said that he "lied to Congress" and "if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime," but didn't directly answer if he should go to jail as a result.

Barr is being criticized and multiple Democrats have called for him to step down following the publicizing of a letter this week where Mueller expresses misgivings over how Barr characterized the findings of the special counsel report in a summary that the attorney general released on March 24. The letter is dated March 27, but Barr told Congress in a pair of hearing in April.

On April 10, in a back and forth between Barr and Democratic Sen. Chris Van Hollen over Barr's March 24 summary, the Maryland Democrat asked Barr, "Did Bob Mueller support your conclusion?" "I don't know whether Bob Mueller supported my conclusion," Barr replied.

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.

  1. Then Pelosi must either impeach Barr immediately or resign. She, and the rest of them, took an oath of office to uphold the laws of the United States. She has openly identified a crime. If she does nothing, she is in breech of her oath of office and should back off and make way for someone who takes the oath seriously.

    2. Pelosi cannot impeach as she could impeach Bush,. The GOP, DOJ, CIA, and FBI are 100% corrupted. Who's going to help her? ONLY Dems and "some" Courts, PERIOD. Mueller never investigated ANYTHING Bush or CHeney did. Bush "lost" $9b in sequential $100 bills, Mueller: "Not my job man". Russians hacked elections, machines, and Americans... Not our job to investigate if they changed any votes, but we didn't see any VOTES changed. WTF? This last election they "waited" until the day AFTER the election to announce they STOPPED the Russians hacking THAT election! Comey ADMITTED he knew that Trump was a Russian Money launderer and that all the news media had reported he got ALL HIS FUNDING FROM RUSSIA... Yet, he had a 2nd faked email scandal made PUBLIC ... Mueller had previous relations with Deripraska, who Trump and McConnell just made a payoff too! Mueller stayed SILENT! Mueller ha SECRET meetings with Barr and Trump's lawyers over his report. STAYED SILENT. Mueller SILENTLY delivered hi report to Barr, upon which Barr FLAT LIED, Mueller stayed silent. Now Mueller makes a comment that is 3 months late and says he will refuse to answer any questions by Democrats! ALWAYS call R's a LIAR when they say they want to investigate anything... ALWAYS beware when they say this is the right guy for the right job... CONNEDservatives NEVER #MAGA

  2. I for one hopes she keeps pushing until dough-boys dough boy breaks and gets impeached. Get rid of both of them, since they are both hogs floating in the swamp. I would love to see the look on his smug-ass faced when he is told he has to go find a job elsewhere because he is an incompetent liar.

  5. California Senate passes bill that would keep Trump off 2020 ballot unless he releases tax returns

    The California state Senate on Thursday approved a bill to require candidates appearing on the presidential primary ballot — including President Trump — to release five years' worth of income tax returns.

    The measure was approved in a 27-10 vote, according to The Associated Press. California, for the first time, will be one of the first states to hold its presidential primary in the 2020 cycle.

    The bill is a response to Trump's insistence that he will not release his tax returns as presidential candidates traditionally have done, claiming he is under audit. If the bill becomes law and Trump does not release his returns, he may not appear on the California primary ballot.

    "We believe that President Trump, if he truly doesn’t have anything to hide, should step up and release his tax returns,” said state Sen. Mike McGuire (D) who co-authored the bill, according to the AP.

  7. Californians Senator Mike McGuire (D) will have a follow up bill stating that if any voter who intends to vote for President Trump in the 2020 primary ballot chooses to withhold paying their taxes to this state, they will be free to do so; under no penalty of law.

  8. House Judiciary should subpoena Barr, send the Sgt at Arms to pick him up, and bring him in to testify. Make him take the 5th before a national audience. Then impeach him.

    More importantly, Mueller must testify, immediately followed by the witnesses to the Trump campaign's many meetings with Russians, the campaign's cooperation with the Russian effort to elect Trump, and Trump's obstruction attempts. Make the major players, including Don Jr., Ivanka, and Kushner, appear and give the the opportunity to explain those things, the spoliation of evidence, refusals to cooperate, and improper granting of security clearances. Make them testify publicly or take the 5th.

    Have hearings several days a week. Let the American public see publicly their depravity, love of Russian money, and their disdain for the average Americans, including their own base. Show the truth to the world and let the American people decide whether to banish these cretins back to the shadows from whence they came.

Don't worry, I have it on good authority that the 'white house idiot' will tweet or say something stupid and cause another 'foot in your mouth' monument for the GOP, RNC or the republican party will have to clean up, again in 2019. For those keeping count the above clean up crew member's gangs are still working on stuff way back into 2000 and beyond.

    3. What dopey 9:36/10:54 doesn't get is that we want all people who commit crimes to be prosecuted, including Kerry's son if he committed one, without regard to whether they're rich, famous, or politically connected.

      So by 9:36/10:54's implicit logic, Trump, Trump's children, Kushner, et al should be prosecuted for their crimes.

      Thank you for agreeing with this 9:36/10:54, but do your troll masters know that's what you believe? You might want to keep such beliefs to yourself lest you find yourself spirited away to the gulag.

  13. The republicans, rnc and gop stooges are connected to making money at what ever expense it costs others just like good communists would do.

John Kapoor, the former chairman and founder of Insys Therapeutics, was accused of bribing doctors to prescribe a highly addictive fentanyl spray.

  17. Nancy pelosi is lying and slandering attorney general barr. Pelosi is playing politics and trying to make barr look like he’s shady when in fact barr is just doing his job and stating the facts. The democrats are literally wasting the nations time and money at this point with this never ending russia collusion hysteria witch hunt on trump. The democrats wasted three plus years and millions of dollars and have lied and slandered president trump since day one and the american people have had enough. Trump has been vindicated and now attorney general barr has assembled a team at the justice department to probe whether the spying by the FBI against the trump campaign in 2016 was improper. Also barr will look into whether the steele dossier which was the unverified and salacious dossier created by former british spy chris steele and paid for by the clinton campaign was fabricated by the russian government to trick the FBI and other Intelligence agencies.

      Surely, if Barr and Trump were innocent they wouldn't be protesting so much.

      Surely, one day Trump Sr, Trump Jr, and Barr may be asking their cellmates to stop calling them Shirley.
