Nancy Pelosi: ‘We Don’t Expect to Accept’ AG Barr’s ‘Interpretation’ of the Mueller Report

House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) believes it is “a little bit arrogant” of Attorney General William Barr to expect that Pelosi and her caucus will simply take his word for what’s in Robert Mueller‘s report.

In an interview which aired on Make It Plain with Mark Thompson on SiriusXM’s Progress channel, the House Speaker stated that the four-page summary authored by Barr and made public on Sunday will not suffice.

“[W]e just haven’t even seen the Mueller Report, and we don’t expect to accept just the attorney general’s interpretation of it,” Pelosi said. “A little bit arrogant of him to think that that would be the case.”

Asked by Thompson whether she is confident that the House will get its hands on the Mueller Report, the Speaker was unequivocal — and warned of consequences for those trying to stand in the way of its release.

“We have to get the report,” Pelosi said. “They — to their peril — will keep that report.”
