As Attorney General Bill Barr gets set to testify today, here’s what we know:

He knowingly lied about the contents of the #MuellerReport to protect Trump.
He lied to the American people and to Congress.

Here are the receipts to prove it:
1. Barr said that Mueller’s report found no collusion, which isn’t a legal term or a criminal charge.

FACT CHECK: Mueller’s report details multiple brazen incidence of collusion. It is damning for Trump and his team.

2. Barr claimed that his 4-page summary letter detailed the principal conclusions of Mueller’s report.

FACT CHECK: We now know Mueller wrote Barr a letter saying that the AG misrepresented his conclusions.

3. Barr has lied about the principal conclusions of confidential documents before.

In 1989, he did the exact same thing.

4. Barr lied to Congress on April 10, saying “I don’t know whether Bob Mueller supported my conclusion.”

FACT CHECK: Mueller’s letter stating his disagreement w/ Barr’s conclusions was sent on MARCH 29. Barr knew full well that he was lying to Congress.

5. Barr misrepresented Mueller’s process, saying that the premise that a sitting president can’t be indicted was NOT a factor in Mueller’s assessment of whether Trump committed any crimes.

FACT CHECK: Mueller himself said it was a KEY factor.

6. Barr claimed that Trump & the White House “fully cooperated” with Mueller’s investigation.

FACT CHECK: Trump refused to sit down for an interview w/ Mueller, and Trump’s team repeatedly lied to investigators. Some of them are going to prison for it.

By lying about the contents of the #MuellerReport—which demonstrates obstruction of justice and collusion by Trump and his team—Barr did exactly what Trump hired him to do and decimated any credibility he had left.

Now, the public needs to hear directly from Mueller himself.
