Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Attorney General Bill Barr too “biased” to summarize special counsel Robert Mueller’s assessment on the Russia investigation.
“Attorney General Barr’s letter raises as many questions as it answers,” Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement. “The fact that Special Counsel Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay.”
She noted that President Donald Trump claimed he was “completely exonerated” which is a direct contradiction of what Mueller said in his report.
“Congress requires the full report and the underlying documents so that the Committees can proceed with their independent work, including oversight and legislating to address any issues the Mueller report may raise. The American people have a right to know,” the statement closed.
