Pelosi accuses Barr of lying to Congress

MANDEL NGAN / AFP

Nancy Pelosi has accused the US Attorney General of lying to Congress.

The US Speaker of the House said “nobody is above the law.”

On Wednesday Attorney General William Barr gave a testimony to a Senate panel about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia's alleged meddling in the US Presidential Election in 2016. 

In his address to Congress, he said he was not aware of any complaints Mueller had about the four-page summary of his report.

However Mueller wrote a letter to Barr saying the short conclusion was devoid of “context.”

In a statement, Pelosi said “The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States. That's a crime."
