A day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi voiced her distrust of U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr, reporters who heard her are still trying to figure out just what she meant by saying Barr might attempt to "deal with ongoing matters in a way that is not constructive for our Constitution."

During a Washington, D.C., press breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, Pelosi was explaining why she felt her fellow Democrats in the House should move carefully with any move to impeach President Trump.

"When people say 'oh, there are political considerations,'" she said, "[We should say] 'not at all.'  .. I do think it's important for the American people to see the purpose of why we'd go forward."

The speaker noted that "we'll be having access to the the less redacted version of the Mueller Report.  I had said originally unless the whole country can see what they show us, we shouldn't see it.

"But we had this offer for the less redacted version."

Pelosi explained that she accepted this offer "because I really don't trust the Attorney General of the United States [Barr] and I'm afraid he may, depending on what is in there, try to--shall we say--deal with ongoing matters in a way that is not contructive for our Constitution."

Obviously aware of some of the curious looks from reporters around the table, Pelosi then said "I can't say any more than that."
