Nancy Pelosi is coming down on AG Barr for doing his job. Barr made a summary of the Mueller Report and Dems are up in arms. They can’t handle that Trump is innocent. It takes away one of their primary reasons to impeach the president.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday criticized Attorney General William Barr’s summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, calling it “condescending” and “arrogant” and saying “it wasn’t the right thing to do.”
Asked if she is ready to accept Barr’s summary of Mueller’s conclusion that his investigation did not establish that Trump or his campaign associates conspired with Russia to win the presidential election, Pelosi didn’t directly answer, saying instead that she needs to see the full Mueller report before making a judgment about what the special counsel found and reiterating her call for it to be publicly released.”
“The House speaker went on to say, referring to the Barr summary, “We don’t need you interpreting for us. It was condescending, it was arrogant, and it wasn’t the right thing to do. So, the sooner they can give us the information, the sooner we can all make a judgment about it.”
Barr delivered his summary of the Mueller report’s findings to lawmakers over the weekend, but Democrats argue that they and the American public must have a chance to see the full special counsel report for themselves, rather than being forced to rely solely on a description of the findings from a Trump administration political appointee.
It’s not yet clear how much of the full Mueller report will be publicly released, but Barr has said that he intends to release as much as possible from the report. In his letter to Congress, he said he is working to determine what can be publicly released, noting that Mueller will be involved in scrubbing the report to identify grand jury material that must remain secret.”
“While Pelosi did not weigh in directly on whether she is ready to accept that Mueller did not establish collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, she did suggest that the Trump campaign may have been “delinquent in their responsibilities” if it failed to notify the FBI that a foreign government had dirt on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
“I’m deadly serious,” Pelosi said, “if a foreign government comes to you and says they have information on your opponent, I say to any member of Congress or person running for office, you take that right to the FBI. So for this report to say that there was no tacit cooperation, well, yeah, if they didn’t bring the information to the FBI, they were delinquent in their responsibilities.”
It’s interesting that Pelosi would be so angry about this. She claimed that she was against impeaching Trump. Was that just a more reasonable persona? Did she secretly hope to have the proof to impeach Trump? Looks like the Dems are going to have to cook up another lie to rally the Dems against Trump.
