Did Barr Lie to Congress? House Judiciary Chair ‘Notes With Interest’ Attorney General’s Testimony

 
 
 

'Intent to Deceive'

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) has just posted clear cut evidence that appears to show Attorney General Bill Barr may have lied to Congress. Nadler did not accuse the Attorney General of lying, but the evidence suggests he did.

Chairman Nadler took to Twitter, first stating that "Mueller has written a letter objecting to Barr’s summary of his report because it 'did not fully capture the context, nature and substance of the investigation.'"

Indeed, many are now calling Barr's actions a "cover up."

"I have demanded the letter & Barr must answer for this. Mueller must be allowed to testify," Nadler tweeted.

But then he posts another tweet, laying out evidence – although not specifically stating – that the Attorney General of the United States lied to Congress.

Mueller's letter was dated March 27.

Barr testified before Congress on April 10.

He was asked, "Did Bob Mueller support your conclusion?" in his now-infamous 4-page letter.

His response: "I don’t know."

That appears to be false.

Not only did Mueller send Barr a letter, he had a telephone conversation about his concerns that Barr had mischaracterized his 22 month long investigation.
