AG Barr calls Democrats’ claims of him lying to Congress ‘laughable’; used to ‘discredit’ him

Bailey Vogt The Washington TimesMay 17, 2019

Attorney General William Barr on Friday rebuked claims by Democrats that he lied under oath and has placed himself in contempt of Congress.

“I think it’s a laughable charge. I think it’s largely being made to try to discredit me partly because they may be concerned about the outcome of a review of what happened during the election. But obviously, you can look at the face of my testimony and see on its face there is nothing inaccurate about it,“he said in an interview with Fox News, which will air in full Saturday.

He added Democrats are criticizing him because”they may be concerned about the outcome of a review of what happened during the election.”
