Pelosi Accuses Attorney General Of Going 'Rogue'

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday accused U.S. Attorney General William Barr of going “rogue” in the Justice Department’s handling of a whistleblower complaint that President Donald Trump solicited a political favor from Ukraine’s president that could help him get re-elected.

The Democrat leader, who launched an impeachment inquiry on Tuesday against the Republican Trump, has accused the administration of trying to cover up the whistleblower complaint.

On Friday, she said Barr’s Justice Department had told the top U.S. intelligence official, Joseph Maguire, to inform the White House about the whistleblower report instead of first going to Congress, as the law requires.
