Lindsey Graham Asks Mueller: Did Barr Lie?
Written by MagaFirstNews on May 3, 2019
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has reached out to special counsel Robert Mueller to verify whether Attorney General William Barr told the truth this week.
According to CNN, Graham — the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee — sent Mueller a letter in regards to Barr’s characterization of a phone conversation the pair had several weeks ago. Mueller was reportedly frustrated with Barr’s initial summary of the Russia report.
“Please inform the Committee if you would like to provide testimony regarding any misrepresentation by the attorney general of the substance of that phone call,” Graham wrote.
Barr was asked about Mueller’s letter during a Wednesday hearing with the Judiciary Committee, which he called “a bit snitty.”
Mueller’s report concluded that President Donald Trump did not conspire with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. He did not say whether Trump obstructed justice, but Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined there was not sufficient evidence to pursue an obstruction case.
