Nancy Pelosi accused Attorney General William Barr on Friday of & # 39; rogue states & # 39; and using the Ministry of Justice to participate in the & # 39; cover-up of a cover-up & # 39; for President Donald Trump.
& # 39; He has become deceptive, & # 39; said Barr's speaker on & # 39; Morning Joe & # 39; from MSNBC.
& # 39; I think they find a cover-up of the cover-up, & # 39; she added. & # 39; And that is really very sad for them. And to make a ministry of justice so villainous, well, they had been like that for a while. & # 39;

Attorney General William Barr and his Ministry of Justice have come under democratic fire
Barr's role in the scandal has been questioned since a transcript of the telephone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky showed that Trump repeatedly urged his Ukrainian counterparty to talk to Barr and Trump's personal lawyer, Trump, about Joe and Hunter Biden.
& # 39; I would like the Attorney General to call you or your people and I would like you to work it out, & # 39 ;, Trump told Zelensky about an investigation into CrowdStrike, a California-based company hired by the Democratic National Committee to investigate the Russian hack of their e-mails in the 2016 elections.
The transcript – released by the White House on Wednesday – showed how Trump wanted to use a government official to assist in his investigation into a political rival.
The Justice Department said President Barr never asked to contact Ukraine.
Ministry of Justice spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said Barr was first informed of Trump's conversation with the Ukrainian president when the department heard about the possible referral of the whistleblower complaint.
& # 39; The President has not asked the Attorney General to contact Ukraine – on this or any other matter, & # 39; said Kupec in a statement on Wednesday.
& # 39; The President has not spoken with the Attorney General about having Ukraine investigated with regard to former Vice President Biden or his son, & # 39; she added.
The Office of Legal Counsel of the Ministry of Justice has chosen not to send the whistleblower's complaint about the call to the congress.
Instead, the attorneys at the Department of Justice investigated the allegations in the Trump complaint and ruled that the President had not violated the campaign financing law when making his request to Zelensky.
Democrats publicly criticized DoJ for not forwarding the complaint to Congress and those complaints led to media reports about the call and its content.
The complaint was delivered to the congress on Wednesday evening and finally made public on Thursday morning.
& # 39; The idea that the Ministry of Justice would have intervened to prevent it from going to Congress further undermines the leadership of the department & # 39 ;, said president Adam Schiff, president of the intelligence service, after looking of the complaint.
Democrats were already angry with Barr for refusing to pursue legal charges against Trump, referring to the long-standing policy of the Ministry of Justice not to sue a current president.
After the report from the Special Council Robert Mueller was released, Barr and then Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein refused to continue the obstruction charges, causing Democrats to start their own investigation.
