Watch: Kamala Harris Demands AG Barr Be Hauled Before Congress Over Mueller Report


Democratic presidential candidate and California Senator Kamala Harris derided Attorney General William Barr‘s summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s report, and demanded that Barr appear to testify before Congress over the matter.

During a rally at Atlanta’s Morehouse College on Sunday, Harris took a few seconds to weigh in on the issue.

“Let’s speak truth on some of the current topics of the day,” Harris said. “Let’s speak truth that the American public deserves transparency and accountability, and the Mueller report must be made public for a full accounting.”

“And the attorney general of the United States must be required to come and testify before Congress, instead of just submitting a four-page memo of what happened,” Harris added.

Other 2020 Democrats weighed in Sunday as well, many of whom similarly demanded the release of the entire report, and knocked Barr’s summary. Some also demanded testimony from Mueller.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) appears to have gotten the jump on the competition, tweeting out her reaction minutes after the news broke.

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) had a similar reaction:

Here’s the reaction from Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY):

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) tweeted a brief video message demanding the Mueller report be made public:

Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders demanded “the whole damn report,” presumably not delivered to his lawn:

Former HUD Secretary Julian Castro threw in a demand for Mueller to testify:

Beto O’Rourke was brief:

Former Congressman John Delaney posted a series of tweets like this:

It’s worth noting that Harris did not mention Trump in her speech, and only two of the tweets from other candidates invoked him.
