Barr Mocks Pelosi’s ‘Laughable Charge’ Calling Him a Liar: They’re Afraid of the ‘Outcome of a Review’

Attorney General William Barr is mocking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for her “laughable charge” against him.

Pelosi accused Barr of lying to Congress during a hearing on April 9, as IJR Blue previously noted, and allegedly committing a crime in doing so.

She pointed to a previous hearing where Barr said he wasn’t aware of objections by special counsel Robert Mueller over his four-page summary of the final report’s findings.

The question came on the heels of The Washington Post revealing Mueller had sent Barr a letter with concerns that the summary “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of his conclusions.

However, Barr let the Democratic leader know exactly how he feels about her claim.

When asked about the speaker’s accusation during a Fox News interview aired on Friday, Barr responded, “It’s a laughable charge and I think it’s largely being made to try to discredit me partly because they may be concerned about the outcome of a review of what happened during the election.”

“They may be trying to undermine my credibility, but obviously you can look at the face of my testimony and see on its face that there was nothing inaccurate about it,” he added.

Watch the video below:

Pelosi was previously met with criticism for her remark.

White House deputy press secretary Steven Groves swiped back at Pelosi: “The fact that the Speaker would take it upon herself to call him a liar is really, really inappropriate and beneath her office.”

Additionally, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blasted the House speaker for going “completely over the top” with her comment. He added, “These people are somewhat suffering from Trump derangement syndrome.”

During the Fox News interview, Barr also discussed his findings of “inadequate” answers to the Russia investigation’s origin, while noting, “People have to find out what the government was doing during that period,” as IJR Red reported. He recently appointed the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, John Durham, to investigate its beginnings.

So Piglosi is basing her accusation that AG Barr lied on a WaPo article? WaPo is a great place to get factual information.

Barr a liar? The speaker was silent for eight years for all those indiscretions they’ve committed. Either she should answer those questions, or retire. I prefer the latter, incompetent at best.
