House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) bashed the Department of Justice Thursday for “wasting time” going after the Affordable Care Act in court.

“The Department of Justice should be busy vetting the Mueller report, but instead they’re wasting time in court trying to overturn every single provision” of Obamacare, she said at her weekly press conference.

She also went after Attorney General William Barr, criticizing his four-page summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“We don’t need you interpreting for us,” she said. “It was condescending. It was arrogant.”

“How can I say this more clearly?” she added. “Show us the report.”
