Harvard Law Professor: ‘Barr Must Be Impeached — If He Doesn’t Resign First’


Harvard Law Professor: ‘Barr Must Be Impeached — If He Doesn’t Resign First’

Constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe on Tuesday said it was a “new ballgame” for Congressional oversight after The Washington Post‘s bombshell report that special counsel Robert Mueller wrote a private letter to Attorney General Bill Barr complaining that his four-page memo to Congress describing the “principal conclusions” of the investigation into President Trump “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of Mueller’s two-year investigation.

“The summary letter the Department sent to Congress and released to the public late in the afternoon of March 24 did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions,” Mueller told Barr. “There is now public confusion about critical aspects of the results of our investigation. This threatens to undermine a central purpose for which the Department appointed the Special Counsel: to assure full public confidence in the outcome of the investigations.”

“Mueller says AG Barr misrepresented the ‘context, nature & substance’ of his probe. What else is there? Barr is a total disgrace and a phony,” Tribe wrote.

Barr “must now testify under Rep. Jerry Nadler’s rules, then resign,” Tribe said.

“Mueller must now testify as well. This is a new ballgame,” he argued.

“AG Barr flat-out lied to the American people about the Mueller report’s incrimination of President Trump. He’s been outed as a total fraud,” he continued. “We can’t let Barr — or Trump — get away with such gross abuse of power.”

“Barr must be impeached if he doesn’t resign first,” Tribe added.
