Harris Says AG Barr Acting as Trump’s Defense Attorney

Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris demanded Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify before Congress and accused Attorney General William Barr of serving as President Trump’s defense attorney.

Responding to Barr’s press conference on the Mueller report, Harris wrote in a statement, “The attorney general’s press conference today should concern us all, filled with political spin and propaganda. He acted more like the president’s defense attorney than our nation’s Attorney General…

“We need Special Counsel Mueller to testify in Congress before the public can even begin to trust this process or have confidence in the rule of law,” she added.
