House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., slammed Attorney General William Barr, and said “it’s more urgent than ever” that special counsel Robert Mueller testify before Congress.
Her comments came in a Thursday tweet following Barr’s press conference on the Mueller report.
She wrote: “AG Barr has confirmed the staggering partisan effort by the Trump Admin to spin public’s view of the #MuellerReport – complete with acknowledgment that the Trump team received a sneak preview. It’s more urgent than ever that Special Counsel Mueller testify before Congress.”
Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has sent a letter to Mueller asking the special counsel to appear before the panel no later than May 23.
