Barr Calls Pelosi’s Accusation That He Lied Under Oath ‘Laughable’

May 17, 2019 10:05 a.m.

Attorney General William Barr called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) accusation that he lied under oath to Congress a “laughable charge” on Fox News.

Pelosi was referring to Barr’s assertion that he was not aware of any concerns special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators had about his summary of the report, though it was revealed that Mueller himself sent Barr a letter detailing his qualms.

Barr claims that he was differentiating between Mueller and the members of his team.
