Pelosi calls Barr’s letter on Mueller probe ‘condescending’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., doesn’t like William Barr’s tone.

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.

Pelosi also defended House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who faced calls Thursday from Republicans to resign his chairmanship over comments that there was significant evidence the president and his associates conspired with Russia.

Pelosi said the Republicans are “scaredy cats” afraid of a “patriotic leader.”

Barr’s letter on the special counsel’s report said that Mueller found no evidence of coordination with Russia, but the report did not make a determination on whether Trump committed obstruction of justice in the Russia probe. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein determined that evidence gathered by Mueller was insufficient on that front.
