Nadler: Barr Doesn't Want Mueller To Testify, He Will Contradict His "Lies And Misrepresentations"


ERIN BURNETT, CNN HOST: So I want to ask you about that, because obviously that's your committee, next Wednesday, Bob Mueller will be there. The Attorney General Bill Barr, right, who previously said he has no problem with Mueller testifying is singing a different tune now. Here is Bill Barr.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) WILLIAM BARR, ATTORNEY GENERAL: I was disappointed to see him because I don't think that serves any purpose dragging Bob Mueller up if he in fact is going to stick to the report. It seems to me the only reason for doing that is to create some kind of public spectacle.


BURNETT: So, he says the only you're doing it is a public spectacle. Your response, Chairman?

REP. JERROLD NADLER (D-NY), JUDICIARY COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN: No, we are doing it because the American people have to hear from Mueller as to what he found, as to the malfeasance by the president as to the cover-up by the attorney general. Of course, the Attorney General Bob Barr does not want Bob Mueller to testify because he by Mueller's own words -- he, Barr, misrepresented the contents of the report to the American people.

The American people should hear from Mueller what was in the report, should hear from Mueller about the evidence of the 10 obstructions of justice by the president, of the repeated instructions by the president to people to lie to them, the American people, and to investigating bodies. And, of course, Barr doesn't want that. Of course, he doesn't want to be contradicted in his lies and misrepresentations.
