House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Monday night that President Trump “has demonstrated on a daily basis his obstruction of justice” over the terms of scheduled testimony by Attorney General William Barr before the House Judiciary Committee.
Democrats have criticized Barr for drawing his own conclusion that Trump did not obstruct justice after Mueller found he couldn’t exonerate the president on that point. Pelosi has said Barr is involved in a “staggering public effort” by the Trump administration to put a positive face on Mueller’s findings.
When asked if she had a message for Barr, Pelosi said, “Respect the constitution. Honor your oath of office. Honor the request of Congress. For the American people.”
