Amash doubles down on accusing Barr of 'deliberately' misleading the public on Mueller report

Source: The Hill

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) on Tuesday doubled down on his accusation that Attorney General William Barr "deliberately misrepresented" the contents of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The GOP lawmaker, who has sharply criticized President Trump and last week became the first congressional Republican to call for his impeachment, accused Barr of "selectively" quoting Mueller in the summary he released prior to making public the investigation's full, redacted report.

"As a result of Barr’s March 24 letter, the public and Congress were misled," Amash tweeted on Tuesday. He went on to accuse the attorney general of using "subsequent statements and testimony...to help build the president’s false narrative that the investigation was unjustified."

I head on NPR that he's holding a town hall, tonight. It will be interesting to hear the response. If it is positive, then that might start to open the gate.

into thinking that they might actually have a spine.
Not that they actually do of course as when it comes to Trump they roll over and play dead on command.
