Pelosi: Barr went 'off the rails' by stating Trump campaign was spying target by feds

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Attorney General William Barr went “off the rails” in his testimony before the House and Senate this week.

Pelosi made the comment hours after Barr told Senate lawmakers “spying did occur” on President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“How very dismaying and disappointing that the chief law enforcement officer of our country is going off the rails yesterday and today,” Pelosi said as she and other leaders arrived at a Democratic issues retreat Wednesday. “He is attorney general of the United States of America, not the attorney general of Donald Trump.”

Pelosi, D-Calif., and other Democrats have condemned or at least questioned Barr’s testimony about spying, which he provided at a hearing before a Senate spending panel.

Barr, before joining the Trump administration, was widely respected by both parties as a veteran lawyer who served as attorney general for President George H.W. Bush.

Democrats have soured on Barr, however, and believe he is working to protect Trump.

I think she meant to say "Barr went off script".   :smokin:

Nancy, he never said that spying occurred.  He said he thinks it did.

There would never be prosecution of anybody if no one ever speculated that a crime had occurred to begin with.

Well Nancy, you, and most of the DEM party are off the rails!
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
