Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) grilled Attorney General Bill Barr for his characterization of the Mueller report at Wednesday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Blumenthal demanded that Barr overturn any notes he or his staff made memorializing the conversation he had with Mueller following the completion of his probe.
Barr called Mueller's letter "a bit snitty" and said it was "probably written by a member of his staff."
"You know, the letter is a bit snitty and I think it was probably written by one of his staff people," Barr said.
Barr denies Blumenthal's request for notes of his call with Mueller:
SEN. RICHARD BLUMENTHAL (D-CT): Did anyone, either you or anyone on your staff, memorialize your conversation with Robert Mueller?
BILL BARR, ATTORNEY GENERAL: Yes.
BLUMENTHAL: Who did that?
BARR: There were notes taken of the call.
BLUMENTHAL: May we have those notes?
BLUMENTHAL: Why not?
BARR: Why should you have them?
SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC), CHAIRMAN: I'll tell you. We've got to end this. But I'm going to write a letter to Mr. Mueller, and I'm going to ask him, is there anything you said about that conversation he disagrees with.
