AP Interview: Pelosi: 'I don't trust Barr; I trust Mueller'

WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday questioned Attorney General William Barr's independence from President Donald Trump, arguing Barr's pursuit of Trump's claims about "spying" during the 2016 campaign undermines his position as the nation's top law enforcement officer.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press, the California Democrat said she was "very concerned" about Barr's handling of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian meddling in the campaign and accused Barr of doing Trump's political bidding in his testimony at a Senate hearing.

"He is not the attorney general of Donald Trump. He is the attorney general of the United States," Pelosi told AP. "I don't trust Barr, I trust Mueller."

Pressure is mounting on the attorney general in the days before his release of a version of Mueller's nearly 400-page report, and Pelosi amplified the demands from Capitol Hill to see the full document. Barr said Wednesday he expects to release a redacted version within a week. Pelosi said it's only a "matter of time" before the full report is made public.

"We will see it," she said.

During Pelosi's 30-minute interview in her Capitol Hill office, she took stock of the Democrats' first 100 days as the House majority in the new Congress. And despite harsh words for Trump and his advisers, she still spoke hopefully of working with him on key issues — including lowering prescription drug prices — where the two share common goals.

At the same time, Pelosi vowed to keep up relentless Democratic oversight of the administration. And she did not fully close the door on impeachment proceedings, despite having recently dismissed efforts by liberal colleagues by saying Trump's "not worth it."

"My view is that impeachment is very divisive in the country, and when we see what we need to see it may be imperative that he be impeached. But up until then, he's not worth it," Pelosi said.

Much will hinge on Mueller's findings, putting the attorney general's credibility increasingly on the line.

Barr testified Wednesday before a Senate panel that he believes "spying did occur" on Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, aligning himself more closely with the president's views on the origins of the Russia investigation. Trump and other critics of the Russia probe claim that the precursor to Mueller's investigation was launched during the Obama administration by officials abusing their surveillance power. Mueller was appointed special counsel by Trump's Justice Department.

Barr didn't present evidence to support the assertion and later in his testimony appeared to backtrack, saying he wasn't certain that any wrongdoing occurred and was only interested in ensuring proper procedures were followed.

Pelosi said Barr's comments undermine the Constitution and his role in the Justice Department.

Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec declined to comment.

As House Democrats pursue oversight of the Trump administration beyond the Mueller probe, Trump has complained that Democrats will never be satisfied. He and his allies call it presidential harassment.

Asked what would satisfy Democrats, Pelosi said: "I'll be satisfied when we have a new president of the United States who is a Democrat."

As for the Mueller report, Barr's four-page summary of its main conclusions said the president was not exonerated by the special counsel. Mueller left open the question of whether Trump obstructed justice during the two-year probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Barr and his team at the Justice Department made their own decision to clear the president of criminal wrongdoing.

Pelosi said anew on Wednesday, "Let us see the report."

"The fact is the president has engaged in activities that are unethical, un-American. ... In every way he is unfit to be the president of the United States," she said.

"Is that an impeachable offense? Well it depends on what we see in the report. I set a very high bar for impeachment because I think it's very divisive in the country and one of our purposes is to unify, as our founders gave us guidance, e pluribus unum, from many one."

Republicans say Pelosi is under great pressure from her liberal flank, including young colleagues such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but the speaker who has represented San Francisco for 30 years scoffed.

"I am from the left," she said. "I'm a progressive Democrat from San Francisco ... and I'm proud of who I am."

As the new Congress rounds out its 100-days milestone, the speaker said Democrats are doing far more than conducting oversight of the White House, even though she said that's their constitutional responsibility as an equal branch of government.

Though female candidates and voters helped usher Democrats to the majority, Pelosi said she's not insisting on having a woman -- or two women -- on the party's 2020 presidential ticket.

"Would I like to see one? Yes," she said. "But it doesn't mean that if there isn't one ... that it's not a ticket that we should all get behind."

She said she prefers to keep the House focused on pocketbook issues for everyday Americans -- lowering health care costs and investing in infrastructure — and new ethics rules, not on Trump.

"We are not just focusing on him," she said. "We're focused on what we said we would do."

Explain how anything Barr is doing is undermining the Constitution? He's just doing the job he was appointed to do. And after the disastrous experiment with Sessions, Trump will certainly not pick an AG who is hostile to him. That's just how it goes in Foggy Bottom.

There is plenty of evidence hiding in plain sight that there was spying on Trump even before he was elected, then afterward. It's Barr's job to see if any laws were broken such as fraudulently obtaining fake FISA warrants. He will start investigations into these matters to flesh out the details and determine if charges are warranted against any of the left wing actors, and who ordered it all.

If you remember, as it's easy to conveniently forget, that at first Holder, then Loretta Lynch, pretty much did everything Obama told them to. Now the chickens they hatched are coming home to roost. The dumb cluck Democrats are not going to have much to crow about in the coming days

And yet, as usual, you provide no evidence of your claim.

Barr's job to see if any laws were broken such as fraudulently obtaining fake FISA warrants.

This claim was made to Nune's when he was in charge of the investigation, and fell flat when the FISA application was released.  FYI, the warrant was not fake, it was issued by a federal judge.

He will start investigations into these matters to flesh out the details and determine if charges are warranted against any of the left wing actors, and who ordered it all.

And his evidence for starting these investigations are what?  FYI, Wally bullshit doesn't count, you want to reply to this question you have to provide reputable links, Breitbart and InfoWars don't count.

I don't have to provide evidence to anyone. That's the job of the new AG, and he has the staff and resources to go into great depth on these matters. Weaponizing the DOJ and FBI is a charge that should be taken seriously.

Of course the FISA was "real". I should have said it was obtained under false pretenses, which is a crime.

I'm just stating what Barr will be doing in the coming days.

Many Democrats and members of the previous administration might be getting a bit worried at this point.

Which President has told his DOJ to stop investigating his allies and only investigate the opposing party?  Hint, his number is higher than 44.

And of course, once again, you have absolutely nothing to back up your opinion with.

Barr is way too busy covering up for Trump.  That, by itself, is a full time job.

Might be getting a bit worried? From the top down (includes Obama), they should all be very worried. Barr used the word "spying". That's why they trotted Nancy out to a microphone to ridicule Barr's capabilities.

Ahhhh ... if Hillary had won none of this would have been exposed.

It appears that you are not paying very close attention as to how the process actually works. There are many things that can't be made public, but we have already discussed those. The Democrats can't be trusted with sensitive and secret materials because they would likely release state secrets in their attempts to pin something, anything, on Trump.

The full report will not reveal anything the summary didn't already cover, and Trump will continue to be your president.  Doesn't that make you happy?

Thought I would give Mr. Barr the benefit of the doubt, that's over.

Many have allowed themselves to be swept up in the paranoia that is fed to us on a daily basis. I am a bit surprised that most have not figured the ploy out, the powers that be keep us continually divided whilst they line their pockets. Both sides of the mainstream media participate in their quest for higher ratings while our elected politicians utilize it to keep themselves in office until such a time that they might grasp that golden ring of the lobbyist. This is just another example in my opinion.

That works both ways ya know. And both sides are the total pits and both sides are unfit to run this country. It's all about the party, not the country or the people. It's all ME! ME! ME! and party first. The only time they care one whit about the American people as a whole is when they need their votes to stay in office or stand on control of the country. Otherwise, the people can just puke up and die. There will someone to replace them born every day. 

An on one from either side is fit to be the leader of our country. 

Both sides are disgusting.

They can be, i agree but in this case Barr is only doing what the law requires.   Laws like this have existed for good reason for a long time.   Now a few politicians want to change the rules because their partisan sensibilities have been tweaked?

That's the epitome of hypocrisy for some of them and absolutely disgusting for all.

Agree. There is just too dang much partisan BS going on in our world today that seems to take the place of what is good for the country and its people. Party first and to Hell with anything and everything else. Trumps trade war with China was hurting a good many industries and their suppliers before the onset of the devastating winter storms and flooding started in the various farm areas of our country, and their prolonged recurrence only adds a double whammy to those people and the related industries affected by them.  

The devastation will not be healed in one hot summer, and it does not look like there will be any end to the stupid trade war anytime soon.  The US is the one that is truly suffering from it, not China, and that is the stupidity of the whole thing.

First of it's not Trump's trade war with China, it's China's trade war with the US.  Somebody with some balls had to stand to those devious MF'ers instead of sucking cock like obama and bush et al.

Then from a geo-poltiical perspective, China knows they are fucked if the status quo is maintained. So they work every angle they can from stealing IP from the US to sucking up to oil producers and countries with rare metals in a modern day form of colonialism.

First of all......if you want to converse with me clean up your vocabulary. The CoC says profanity should be used 'judiciously".

Love to buy you a libation some day Raven.    We don’t agree on a lot but you seen like a level headed, honest person.

I respect that.     I can tell you have a lot of sincere honor and integrity.    That goes a long way in my camp.

Thank you for your very kind words, Sparty. We each have our own thoughts and opinions on some things, but, there are things that we can and do agree on. 

It would be my great pleasure to share a libation with you one day, Sparty. I respect the right of others to express their own thoughts and opinions, and I reserve the right to express my own. Mutual respect makes for a more pleasant dialog, and I am always eager to learn from others.

That goes a long way in my camp as well. (smile)

My vocabulary is measured according to the circumstances.  i.e. judiciously applied.  Appears more like an excuse to avoid addressing the topic.

I agree with Pelosi. I wouldn't trust Barr as far as I could throw him. Mueller is far more trustworthy than Barr. Barr will tell people what Trump wants to hear. That is why Trump put him in his position..to cover Trumps a$$. His base will believe anything, and that is all Trump cares about, as the thinks that is all he needs to get reelected.

Pigs like Pelosi say they would not believe Barr, but would believe Muller if he said the exact same thing.

You believe Trump, FFS.   Since we don't know what Mueller said, we won't believe Barr, who is protecting Trump.  If Mueller's full report is so glowing, I'm sure the world would have read it on Twitter by now.   Pushing Trump lies makes nothing true.

There has been a lot of bitching about Barr and how the left can't believe what he says. It's been crazy since he's been fairly consistent the entire time. You don't want to believe the 4 page summary he handed out but you don't know what's in Mueller's report so you can't know if it's true or not. You are just parroting the left's talking points in this, IMO.

Even DAG Rosenstein came out today to defend how Barr is handling the report. According to Rosenstein,  Barr is following the law and DOJ protocol in this.
