Democrats intensified their pressure on President Donald Trump’s administration on Thursday as U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Attorney General William Barr of committing a crime by lying to lawmakers and a key committee chairman threatened to hold Barr in contempt of Congress.

Shortly after Barr refused to appear before House Judiciary Committee, Pelosi accused him of lying to lawmakers about interactions with Mueller after the special counsel ended a 22-month investigation into Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election to boost Trump’s candidacy.

“That’s a crime,” Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, told reporters, referring to Barr’s congressional testimony.

  1. (Gateway Pundit) – Attorney General Bill Barr Wednesday testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Mueller’s report.
    Ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) grilled Bill Barr about the so-called ‘obstruction episodes’ in Mueller’s report.
    Feinstein questioned Barr about the report’s claims that President Trump asked his lawyer Don McGahn to fire Mueller — Trump also asked McGahn to correct the inaccurate New York Times article stating he instructed Mueller’s firing.
    In reality, President Trump instructed his counsel to look into Mueller’s conflicts of interest and ultimately Mueller was never fired — a fact that Bill Barr pointed out to Feinstein.
    Feinstein continued to push back and argued that Trump trying to prevent further criticism of himself is somehow a crime — Bill Barr put her in her place.
    “You have a situation where the President tries to change a lawyer’s account in order to prevent further criticism of himself,” Feinstein said.
    “That’s not a crime,” Barr said leaving Feinstein speechless.

  2. Eric Holder committed acts of treason but yet Ms. Plastic defended him. Mr. Holder was impeached by the United States Congress but yet Ms. Plastic defended him. Mr. Holder spit in the face of Brian Terry’s family but yet Ms. Plastic defended him. Mr. Holder withheld information and was held in contempt, over his illegal gun running scandal, Fast & Furious but yet Ms. Plastic defended him.
    Why the sudden change of heart by this millionairess?!
