Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris told the Detroit NAACP Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner Sunday Attorney General Bill Barr “lied” during testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“[W]e had just recently a United States attorney general who lied to Congress and lied to you and is clearly more interested in representing the president than the American people.”
Why it matters: The California senator is among several leading Democrats to have called for Barr’s resignation over his handling of the Mueller report. A C-SPAN video circulating on Twitter of her questioning Barr had been viewed almost 4.9 million times by 11:30 p.m. ET. Sunday.
In her NAACP speech, Harris also accused President Trump of “trying to make America hate.”
