Pelosi Attacks Barr Ahead of Mueller Report Release – Says AG Barr Has “Thrown Out His Credibility” In His Effort to “Protect Trump”
All hell broke loose after it was announced that Attorney General Bill Barr will be holding a 9:30 AM press conference prior to releasing Mueller’s report.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said AG Barr lost all of his credibility and the Justice Department’s independence in response to a New York Times report that Barr briefed White House lawyers on Mueller’s report ahead of its release.
Only the Democrats would complain about something this benign.
PELOSI: “AG Barr has thrown out his credibility & the DOJ’s independence with his single-minded effort to protect @realDonaldTrump above all else. The American people deserve the truth, not a sanitized version of the Mueller Report approved by the Trump Admin.”

The Democrats are melting down over Attorney General Bill Barr’s handling of the release of the Mueller Report with a scheduled Justice Department press conference at 9:30 AM ET.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) held an emergency presser on Wednesday evening and used his platform to attack Attorney General Bill Barr.
Nadler opened up his presser by accusing Bill Barr of waging a media campaign on behalf of President Trump.
“This is wrong!” Nadler shouted.
House Democrat Chairs also demanded AG Barr cancel his planned presser on Mueller’s report, calling it “unnecessary and inappropriate.”
Poor Dims, they don’t know how to handle a real Attorney General who isn’t afraid of unhinged, screeching lawmakers.
