'Really Beneath the Speaker': Graham Slams Pelosi For Criticizing Bill Barr's Mueller Probe Summary
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) ripped Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for taking issue with Attorney General William Barr's formal summary of the Mueller report.
Pelosi on Thursday slammed the attorney general’s four-page letter on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as “condescending” and demanded to see the entire report.
“No thank you Mr. Attorney General,” Pelosi said. “I don’t need your interpretation.”
“Show us the report,” she added. “We have to see the facts.”
Pelosi called Barr's decision to write the letter "arrogant." Congress, she said, doesn't need Barr "to be our interpreter of something that he should just show us."
The Democratic chairmen of six House committees have demanded that Barr release the Mueller report to Congress by Tuesday.
"I think that was really beneath the speaker," Graham said. "You really think Bob Barr would give a summary of the key findings and it would not be supported by the [Mueller] report?"
"This whole Oliver Stone approach to the Mueller report by the Democrats is getting old," Graham said, in an apparent reference to the left-leaning filmmaker.
Graham also took issue with former FBI Director James Comey claiming it is unbelievable that Robert Mueller did not consider President Trump firing him to be a potential case of obstruction of justice.
Graham said Mueller spent millions and employed dozens of FBI agents and still could not "decide one way or another about obstruction of justice."
"If the underlying crime doesn't exist, it's virtually impossible to determine obstruction," graham said. "We'll have Comey come in [to our committee] and tell us about everything."
Graham said he will seek to ask Comey to testify in regard to the FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page, the actions of DOJ official Bruce Ohr and the ex-MI6 spy Christopher Steele.
