Pelosi Slammed By The Justice Department After Sick Allegations About Barr: "Deadly Serious"
Dems have been sore since the announcement of Mueller's finding. After all, they had hoped to use the report to impeach Trump. When AG Bill Barr reported that the report found absolutely no collusion from the Trump campaign with Russia, well their little world fell apart.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to start a brand new conspiracy by accusing Barr of 'committing a crime'. Just like the Russian conspiracy hoax, this too was a baseless and false accusation.
"What is deadly serious about it is the attorney general of the United States of America is not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States. That’s a crime," Pelosi told reporters in comments reported by CNBC Thursday. "He lied to Congress," she alleged when asked about her claim again. "If anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law."
According to The Daily Wire, while she directly accused the attorney general of committing a "crime," Pelosi would not give a straight answer about if he should go to prison for his alleged criminal offense, saying only that there's a "process involved."
As CNBC notes, the Justice Department has responded to Pelosi's "deadly serious" accusation, spokeswoman Kerri Kupac calling the speaker's comment a "baseless attack on the Attorney General" that is "reckless, irresponsible and false."
Barr was not only open with the public but with Mueller before releasing his findings. He called Mueller before and after to check for any inaccuracies. On the final call to Mueller, the special counsel told Barr that the only ones who misconstrued his report were the media.
Barr took it a step further and asked that the report be released in its entirety. Barr's reason for this wasn't just clarity but to prevent anymore misunderstanding and misleading accusations.
Pelosi was out of line and out of her mind accusing Barr of wrongdoing. Then again this is Pelosi we're talking about so it's just another day at the office.
