The Democrats and their stenographers in the media have accused Bill Barr of perjuring himself during his testimony before Congress.
It all started on April 10 when Bill Barr testified to the Senate Appropriations Committee about the Justice Department’s 2020 budget.
Barr answered questions about Mueller’s report during this hearing, which was held just two weeks after he released his 4-page summary of Mueller’s “principal conclusions” revealing Trump did not conspire with the Kremlin during the 2016 election.
Barr also decided Trump did not obstruct justice and the Democrats went crazy.
On April 10, Democrat Senator Chris Von Hollen (MD) questioned Bill Barr about how he came to the conclusion that Trump did not obstruct justice. Von Hollen was furious that Barr and Rosenstein came to this conclusion.
Toward the end of his questioning, Von Hollen asked Barr if Mueller supported his conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice.
“Did Bob Mueller support your conclusion?” Von Hollen asked Barr.
“I don’t know whether Bob Mueller supported my conclusions,” Barr said.
Watch Barr’s exchange with Von Hollen:
Fast forward to last week…
The night before Barr was set to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee, a March 27th letter Mueller wrote to Bill Barr complaining about the public perception of his report was leaked to the Washington Post and the New York Times — both papers strategically published contents of the letter the night before Barr’s testimony to create the narrative that the attorney general was hiding something.
Mueller did not accuse Bill Barr of releasing an inaccurate letter to Congress, rather, he felt the media coverage of the letter misinterpreted the Russia investigation.
Bill Barr told the truth when he stated Mueller didn’t specify either way whether he supported his conclusions — his letter was focused on his frustrations over the media coverage of the letter, not Bill Barr’s summary.
Bill Barr also spoke to Robert Mueller over the phone about the March 27th letter and Barr testified that Mueller did not believe his 4-page summary was inaccurate.
Democrat Senator Richard “Da Nang Dick” Blumenthal asked Bill Barr last week if he memorialized his telephone call with Robert Mueller on March 27th.
“Did you or anyone, either you, or anyone on your staff memorialize your conversation with Robert Mueller?” Blumenthal asked Barr.
Barr replied in the affirmative then refused to hand his Mueller memos over to the Committee.
“Why should you have them?” Barr replied.
The Democrats are insane. Mueller’s report has already been released to the public and it completely obliterated the Trump-Russia conspiracy theories, yet they are whining about a letter that most likely written by Weissmann in order to smear Trump and his administration.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler are now using this exchange Barr had with Von Hollen to claim the attorney general committed a crime and perjured himself.
I note with interest AG Barr’s 4/10 Senate testimony. “Q: Did Bob Mueller support your conclusion? A: I don’t know whether Bob Mueller supported my conclusion.” Now it appears that Mueller objected in this 3/27 letter. https://t.co/IiK5zJYtAS

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Friday sent Robert Mueller a letter giving him the opportunity to testify about his telephone conversation with Bill Barr regarding the March 27th letter he sent the attorney general complaining about the media coverage of the initial findings of his report.
