Nancy Pelosi Claims Ag Barr Is Trying To ‘Cover Up’ For President Trump Following Flynn’s Exoneration

By

Nancy Pelosi claims AG Barr has politicized the justice department and is covering up for President Trump following General Flynn’s exoneration. 

From The Hill 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday accused Attorney General William Barr of trying to “cover up” for President Trump in dropping the case against his former national security adviser Michael Flynn for charges of lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia.

“Attorney General Barr’s politicization of justice knows no bounds,” Pelosi said in a statement.

“Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators in the face of overwhelming evidence – but now, Attorney General Barr’s Justice Department is dropping the case to continue to cover up for the President,” she added.  

Flynn had previously pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia during the presidential transition in 2016. Flynn later moved to withdraw his guilty plea and has been fighting the charges.

In a court filing on Thursday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) said it was moving to drop its case against Flynn, saying it was no longer sure it could make its case.
