Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leader of the Senate Chuck Schumer have beaten Attorney General William Barr and accused him of & # 39; intentionally distorting & # 39; of the Mueller report that they & # 39; paints a disturbing picture of a president who is a web of deception, lies & # 39; has woven.

The couple issued a joint positive statement on Thursday evening in response to the publication of the 448-page report, outlining & # 39; at least four key ways in which Mr. Barr misled the public about the content of the Mueller report & # 39 ;.

Posting their response to the release of the report, Pelosi tweeted: & # 39; We learned today that AG Barr deliberately distorted significant parts of the #MuellerReport.

& # 39; The #MuellerReport gives a disturbing picture of a president who has interwoven a web of deception, lies and inappropriate behavior and acts as if the law does not apply to him. & # 39;

The statement adds: & # 39; But if you had not read the report and only listened to Mr. Barr, you would not have known it because Mr. Barr was so misleading. & # 39;

Pelosi and Schumer reacted furiously after the Barr published an edited version of the 448-page report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Thursday.

The report says it is crucial that the special council did not make President Trump clear.

It said Congress might find Trump guilty of impeding justice – an hour after Attorney General Bill Barr said he had personally purged the president of the crime.

In their joint statement, the couple say that & # 39; Barr led us to believe that the opinion of the Office of Legal Counsel did not play a significant role in Special Counsel Mueller's refusal to make a decision on obstruction & # 39 ;

But they argue that the report actually shows that opinion played an important role, and probably the decisive role in Special Counsel Mueller's decision not to draw a conclusion & # 39 ;.

They comment on Mueller's report & # 39; quotes several examples of presidential action that, according to the president, appear to be hampering justice & # 39 ;.

And they say that the Special Council's own words & # 39; directly and dramatically undercut Prosecutor General Barr's claim & # 39; that the President fully cooperated in the investigation of the Special Counselor.

Finally, Chuck and Nancy claim that the Special Council report confirms that members of the Trump campaign were aware of Russian attempts to get involved in the elections.

They say it does not report to the federal authorities and that Barr omits this from his public statements, & # 39; every patriotic American should shake to the core & # 39 ;.

Democrats were furious that Barr used a press conference to announce the report's findings before it was seen by Congress or the public – but after it was given to Trump & # 39; s personal lawyers to judge.

Pelosi and Schumer had previously asked Mueller to publicly testify before Congress.

The democratic leaders of the congress issued their ranks before the long-awaited report from Mueller became public and before the 9:30 am press conference in Barr.

But the report contains huge amounts of evidence that will be used to question Barr's judgment.

NANCY PELOSI AND CHUCK SCHUMER & # 39; S STATEMENT FULLY

& # 39; What we learned today is that Attorney General Barr deliberately distorted significant parts of the Special Counsel Mueller report.

& # 39; Special Counsel Mueller & # 39; s report paints a disturbing picture of a president who has interwoven a network of lies, lies and inappropriate behavior and acts as if the law does not apply to him. But if you hadn't read the report and only listened to Mr. Barr, you would not have known it all because Mr. Barr was so misleading.

& # 39; There are at least four important ways in which Mr. Barr misled the public about the content of the Mueller report:

& # 39; Advocate General Barr led us to believe that the opinion of the Office of Legal Counsel did not play a significant role in Special Counsel Mueller's refusal to make a decision on obstruction. In fact, the report shows that opinion played an important role, and probably the decisive role in Special Counsel Mueller's decision not to draw a conclusion.

& # 39; Advocate General Barr came to the conclusion that the President has not obstructed the law, but the Special Counsel Mueller report cites several cases of presidential action that appear to undermine this finding.

& # 39; Third, the Special Council's own words directly and dramatically undermine Attorney General Barr's claim that the President fully cooperated in the Special Counsel's investigation. As the report shows, the president actually did the opposite – from firing the FBI director, to pressuring senior officials to lie, to refuse to testify, to try to dismiss the special council itself.

& # 39; Finally, the Special Council report confirms that members of the Trump campaign were aware of Russian attempts to interfere in the elections, but instead of reporting this to the federal authorities, like any patriotic American would have done, the Trump campaign and openly encouraged President Trump himself with a view to winning a presidential election. That Attorney General Barr has omitted this from all his public statements about the report should shake every patriotic American to the core.

& # 39; For these reasons, it is imperative that the remainder of the report and underlying documents be made available to Congress and that Special Counsel Mueller declares both chambers as soon as possible. & # 39;
