Pelosi: AG’s summary of Mueller report was ‘condescending’ and ‘arrogant’

WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took issue with Attorney General William Barr’s decision to send Congress a four-page summary of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s final report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

“It was condescending. It was arrogant. And it wasn’t the right thing to do,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) said at a news conference on Thursday.

Pelosi reiterated her request that Barr make the entire report public.

“The sooner they can give us the information, the sooner we can all make a judgement about it.”

Several House committee chairs have asked Barr to turn over the report by April 2.

Barr sent a letter to key lawmakers on Capitol Hill Sunday that said Mueller did not find any evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials during his 22-month investigation.

In his letter, Barr said that while Mueller’s report did not uncover any evidence that Trump may have broken the law, “it also does not exonerate him.”

Barr has said he will confer with the Department of Justice as to what aspects of the report can be made public.

Republicans have argued that the finding of no collusion should mean an end to Democratic congressional probes into the matter.
