House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she will no longer address anything Attorney General William Barr has to say. She reportedly believes the attorney general lied to Congress, prompting her latest comments.

Pelosi’s remarks are allegedly in response to Barr’s April testimony before the House Appropriations Committee. Democrat Congressman Charlie Crist asked the attorney general whether he was aware that Mueller’s team was frustrated with Barr’s summary of the report.

However, Pelosi says because Barr received a letter and phone call from Mueller two weeks prior, he had knowledge of the special counsel’s concerns. The former special counsel is scheduled to appear before Congress on July 17th.
