Attorney General William Barr performed some verbal contortions Tuesday when asked if the White House has seen Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
“I said what I am going to say about the report today. I have issued three letters about it,” Barr said when asked at a House hearing whether the White House had been briefed on the report beyond Barr’s letters. “And I was willing to discuss the historic information of how the report came to me and my decision on Sunday. But, I have already laid out the process that is going forward to release these reports.”
“I’m not going to say anything more about it until the report is out and everyone has a chance to look at it,” he added during his testimony in front of a House Appropriations subcommittee.
