Why Bother With Taking An Oath When
All They Do Is Lie?
U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) on April 9: “Reports have emerged recently, general, that members of the Special Counsel’s team are frustrated at some level with the limited information included in your March 24th letter, that it does not adequately or accurately necessarily portray the report’s findings. Do you know what they’re referencing with that?” Barr said: “No, I don’t.”
In the same hearing Chris Van Hollen asked Barr whether Mueller supported his conclusions. The question was similar to Crist's and gave the AG another chance to come clean, but Barr opted to lie. "I don't know whether Bob Mueller supported my conclusion,” Barr responded to Van Hollen.
How do we know these were lies? Well, the day before the hearing it was revealed that Barr had received 2 letters from Mueller (dated 3/25 & 3/27) plus had a "speaker phone" conversation with Mueller ... witnessed by the Deputy Attorney General and members of their staff. Sen. Richard Blumenthal asked for copies of any notes taken during the phone conversation with Mueller and Barr declined. He knows he lied and doesn't want to turn over any evidence that can be used to expose his lies.
So come the next day amid criticism of Barr House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tries to put a little spin on the story & tells reporters he does not believe Attorney General Barr lied to Congress. So much for McCarthy's credibility.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is right: the Attorney General lied, and it's a crime to lie to Congress. Barr oughta' be charged ... and everyone who repeated stupid comments like Kevin McCarthy ... should also be outed, publicly shamed, and humiliated. Why do voters continue to vote for Republicans??? These creepy people are just adding negative reasons to a really, really long list.
