On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Attorney General William Barr of lying to Congress, telling reporters, “That’s a crime.”
Pelosi accusation was based upon the March 27th letter Robert Mueller sent to A.G Barr complaining about the media coverage of the findings of his final report.
Adding that she’s open to the possibility of him facing jail time.
“He [Barr] lied to Congress, He lied to Congress. And If anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law. Not the President of the United States and not the attorney general.”

The DOJ however responded swiftly to Pelosi’s accusation, calling it a “baseless attack” on the Attorney General.
“The baseless attack on the Attorney General is reckless, irresponsible and false,” DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec tweeted.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) also blasted the Trump Deranged Democrat on Thursday during his press conference.
McCarthy said, “I do not believe Attorney General Barr lied, i think if people are looking at who has lied in the process, simply look at Chairman Nadler — Chairman Nadler asked the attorney general to come [to testify] and he said ‘yes’.”
Adding that Nadler changed the format to have staffers question Barr instead of committee members after Barr agreed to testify to the House Judiciary Committee.
Reporter: [Pelosi] said the AG has lied, committed a crime. What’s your reaction?
