Barr "lied to Congress": Pelosi



NO USE ABC AMERICA, FOX, CNN, UNIVISION, TELEMUNDO, BBC AMERICA, NBC, OR THEIR DIGITAL/MOBILE PLATFORMS.~** ROUGH CUT (no reporter narration) STORY: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, accused Barr of lying to Congress on Thursday, and said neither the attorney general, nor the Republican president are above the law.

"That's a crime," Pelosi said, though she did not specify the comment to which she was referring.

Democrats have accused Barr of misleading Congress by testifying in April that he did not know whether Mueller agreed with his initial characterization of the report - failing to mention a March 27 letter from the special counsel complaining that Barr's initial public summary did not "fully capture the context, nature and substance of this Office's work."
