The Democrats have access to the Mueller report with minimal redactions, but that’s still not enough for Sen. Kamala Harris:
Attorney General Barr admitted that he did not look at the underlying evidence in the Mueller investigation before single-handedly closing the matter.
Now, the president is blocking Congress from seeing it for ourselves. What are they trying to hide?

Reality check time:
This bizarre claim again. If Barr had looked at the underlying evidence and discredited Mueller's account, that would be news. Instead, he *accepted* Mueller's account and therefore had no reason to look at the underlying evidence. Not complicated. Nothing "admitted." https://t.co/bqh2ol9h2d

There is nothing that could be done to make the Dems satisfied:
And if he looked at all the underlying evidence of Mueller's work before saying if he would or wouldn't accept it, he would rightly be viewed as undermining his subordinate and exercising undue political influence.
Barr cannot win with these individuals. Complete bad faith. https://t.co/7Ue1Dm4kC3

Amazing, isn’t it?
Was she really an attorney general at one time? Because I'm really having a hard time believing that. https://t.co/n0uN4VxD7Q

And yet it’s true.
