Impeach Bill Barr
Impeach Bill Barr
It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.
Barr lied to Congress. He should be impeached.
Attorney General Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee today was so riddled with lies that a major news network had to cut in to fact check him not once, but twice.
We already knew that Barr lied about the contents of the Mueller report in his March 24 letter about the investigation. Now, we also know that Mueller complained directly to Barr about his misrepresentations, and that Barr lied to Congress about that.
Instead of correcting the record, Barr doubled down on his lies at today’s hearing, protecting Trump’s cover up and playing the role he was hand-picked to fill: Trump’s puppet.
The American people deserve transparency. Barr must be impeached, and Mueller must testify. Share this clip on Facebook and Twitter to spread the word:
Barr lied repeatedly about two key components of Mueller’s report:
- COLLUSION: Barr lied about Mueller’s findings, telling Sen. Graham that Mueller did not find evidence of collusion. Spoiler alert: he did.
- OBSTRUCTION: Mueller’s report detailed 10 key instances of potential obstruction of justice. Today, Barr said once again that Mueller’s findings DO NOT support obstruction. He even went on to suggest that Mueller shouldn’t have investigated obstruction in the first place.
Mueller’s report was damning for Trump and his inner circle, even in its redacted form, and there’s lots more to come. Barr is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee tomorrow (if he even shows up). Stay tuned to @CAPAction and @Moscow_Project for live analysis and fact-checking.
