“What is deadly serious about it is the attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States,” Pelosi said at her weekly press conference Thursday. “That’s a crime.”
Pelosi was speaking specifically about Barr’s testimony last month in front of the House Appropriations Committee, during which he said he didn’t know whether Mueller disagreed with his characterization of the special counsel’s report in a four-page summary Barr released in March.
We now know Mueller wrote Barr a letter two weeks before his testimony, criticizing the attorney general’s summary.
“There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation,” Mueller wrote to Barr.
