Pelosi, Schumer: Mueller report undercuts Barr claims on Trump obstruction

WASHINGTON - The two top Democrats in Congress said on Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report undercuts claims by Attorney-General William Barr that President Donald Trump did not obstruct justice in the federal Russia probe.

"The differences are stark between what Attorney-General Barr said on obstruction and what Special Counsel [Robert] Mueller said on obstruction," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement.

"As we continue to review the report, one thing is clear: Attorney-General Barr presented a conclusion that the president did not obstruct justice while Mueller's report appears to undercut that finding," they said.
