A group of House Democrats on Wednesday called for Attorney General William Barr to cancel his planned press conference Thursday morning on ahead of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
“The Department of Justice announced today that the Attorney General will hold a press conference tomorrow morning before Congress has even seen Special Counsel Mueller’s report,” the chairs said in a statement.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This press conference, which apparently will not include Special Counsel Mueller, is unnecessary and inappropriate, and appears designed to shape public perceptions of the report before anyone can read it.”
The statement was signed by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff(Calif.), Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings(Md.), Committee on Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters(Calif.) and Committee on Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel (N.Y.).
House Democratic chairs call on AG William Barr to cancel his press conference until after Congress sees the Mueller report.
They say DOJ actions like reportedly talking to the White House about the report “reinforce our concern that he is acting to protect President Trump.” pic.twitter.com/VO5CjjMJ0V
