Pictured: Attorney General William Barr testifies to Congress
Washington, D.C. —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has accused Attorney General William Barr of lying to Congress after his failure to turn over the complete Mueller Report that investigated Russia’s interference with the 2016 presidential election.
According to Pelosi, Barr’s letter to Congress releasing unclassified sections of the 448-page Mueller report to the public were purposefully misinterpreted in the president’s favor. Pelosi declared in a press conference that “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.”
Democrats threaten to hold Barr in contempt if he fails to release the unredacted results of the investigation.
Jerrold Nadler, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, affirmed that he would give Barr the deadline of May 15th. “We will have no choice but to move quickly to hold the attorney general in contempt if he stalls or fails to negotiate in good faith,” he remarked.
Barr, for reasons yet to be released, did not show up to a hearing that would’ve demanded the conclusions of the Mueller investigation.
Democrats are beginning to draw more publicity to the situation as Barr continues to stall, with Congressman Steve Cohen obnoxiously munching on a bucket of KFC at the meeting the attorney general failed to make an appearance at.“Chicken Barr should have shown up today and answered questions,” he said. “An attorney general who’s picked for his legal acumen and his abilities would not be fearful of attorneys questioning him for 30 minutes.”
The Left’s offensive campaign has not come without fierce retaliation, however.
Doug Collins, the Representative of Georgia, called Pelosi’s attack “ludicrous” and stated that “The reason Bill Barr is not here today is because the Democrats decided they did not want him here today.”
In spite of the fact that they are setting fire to Capitol Hill, Democrats are determined to prove that Trump tinkered with the results Mueller Probe to deliberately cause public confusion.
