Trump Blasts Democrats After Barr Testimony

Wednesday, 01 May 2019 09:51 PM

President Donald Trump says calls from some Democratic lawmakers for Attorney General William Barr to resign are "so ridiculous."

Trump tells Fox Business Network's Trish Regan that he heard Barr "performed incredibly well" in testimony Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The president noted that three of the senators who questioned Barr are running for the presidency and accused them of "ranting and raving like lunatics, frankly."

Trump was asked about Barr declining to appear before a House panel to testify on special counsel Robert Mueller's report. Barr objected to the format of letting staff attorneys conduct a round of questioning.

Trump says, "They want to treat him differently than they have anybody else," adding, "You elect people that are supposed to be able to do their own talking."
