Nadler destroys Barr for his ‘disingenuous and misleading’ spin by reading directly from Mueller’s report

Published

on

The chair of the House Judiciary Committee held a Thursday afternoon press conference following the public release of a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is subpoenaing the full Mueller report after Attorney General William Barr stonewalled committee requests.

“First, to observe, Attorney General Barr appears to have shown an unsettling willingness to undermine his department to protect President Trump. Barr’s words and actions suggest he’s been disingenuous and misleading in saying the president is cleared of wrongdoing,” Nadler said.

Nadler detailed what Barr had neglected to disclose when he presented his summary of Mueller’s findings weeks ago.

“That is why I formally requested that special counsel Mueller testify before the House Judiciary Committee as soon as possible to get answers to these critical questions, because we clearly can’t believe what Attorney General Barr tells us,” Nadler concluded.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday refused to condemn the President of the United States for sending racist tweets in which he told four non-white congresswomen to "go back" to their countries of origin.

McConnell spoke on the matter at a press conference, but he did not explicitly rebuke President Donald Trump.

"There's been a lot of discussion about the events of the last couple days, I'd like to address it myself," McConnell volunteered. "I think there's been a consensus that political rhetoric has really gotten way way overheated all across the political spectrum."

On Tuesday, the fallout continued from remarks President Trump made telling four freshman congresswomen -- and women of color -- that they should go back to their own countries.

While some prominent Republicans criticized the president, they stopped short of calling his comments racist.

MSNBC reported Tuesday that Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) -- a civil rights icon -- deemed Trump's remarks racist.

"This is not any, any way for the president of the United States of America to be attacking to be saying what he's saying about these young women," Lewis said.

"It's just dead wrong. We must use everything in a nonviolent way to say that it's wrong."

‘White supremacy is a hell of a drug’: columnist explains the GOP’s garbled response to Trump

Published

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump addressed comments he'd made telling four freshman congresswomen -- all American citizens and women of color -- to go back to their countries.

The comments set off a furor that the president was being outwardly racist.

“It's up to them. They can do what they want. They can leave, they can stay, but they should love our country,” the president told reporters Tuesday when he was asked about his remarks.

On CNN Tuesday, New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali explained how Donald Trump's comments -- and his Republican counterparts' refusal to call them racist -- is rooted in a dangerous white supremacy, or terror at the "browning of America."
