From Yahoo News:
Attorney General William Barr refused Wednesday to turn over his notes on a conversation he had with Robert Mueller during which the special counsel complained about Barr’s summary of his report about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and Donald Trump’s attempts to cover it up.
“No,” Barr responded when asked by Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., if he would provide the Senate Judiciary Committee with the notes he took to document the call with Mueller.
“Why not?” Blumenthal responded.
“Why should you have them?” Barr answered.
Barr’s defiance came at the end of a contentious day of testimony during which Democratic members of the committee accused the attorney general of the United States of lying. Republican committee members, meanwhile, sought to shift the focus of the hearing to what they described as corruption in the FBI during the 2016 campaign.
Moments before the tense exchange, Barr derisively described a March 27 letter by Mueller objecting to Barr’s summary of his report.
“The letter’s a bit snitty and I think it was probably written by one of his staff people,” Barr said.
Throughout his testimony Wednesday, Barr deflected responsibility to Mueller for the decision not to charge Trump with obstruction of justice. Democrats on the committee said Mueller’s interactions with Barr show that the attorney general had provided political cover for the White House.
