House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Attorney General William Barr "should be investigated" for overriding the sentencing recommendation made by career prosecutors in the case of Trump associate Roger Stone.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) (Photo: Screen capture) (CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Attorney General William Barr "should be investigated" for overriding the sentencing recommendation made by career prosecutors in the case of Trump associate Roger Stone. "This is not what America is about," Pelosi told a news conference on Thursday. "It is so wrong," she said. But she expressed no interest in impeaching Barr. "Our priorities are to do our jobs for the American people," Pelosi said. Democrats and their media allies claim that Barr intervened after President Donald Trump tweeted his displeasure about Stone's proposed seven- to nine-year sentence, which is unusually long for the non-violent crimes of lying to Congress and witness tampering. She praised the four prosecutors who quit the case in protest, and she also mentioned the transfer of Lt. Col. Alex Vindman from the White House National Security Counsel to the Defense Department. "This all must be investigated," Pelosi said. A reporter asked Pelosi if the House should impeach Barr, but she drew a line at that: Again, there is so much malfeasance on the part of people in the Executive Branch right now, but the fact is, our responsibility is to honor our oath of office to protect and defend. But we can point out the disrespect that the attorney general has for the rule of law, for lying to Congress, and that is really very bad. And it's not a good thing. I mean, it's lying to the American people. It is lying to the American people under oath. But our priorities are to do our jobs for the American people -- to lower health care costs, by lowering the cost of prescription drugs, we passed that bill -- we hope that we could work with the administration to put it together. We hope they don't abandon it as they seem to have, I guess, at the behest of Pharma. Pelosi also mentioned infrastructure, increasing paychecks, ending the impact of "dark money" in politics, and tackling "voter suppression" as Democrat priorities. She repeated that she's proud of the House managers for making the impeachment case against President Trump, whom they had no choice but to impeach, she said. "But that doesn't mean we're going to spend all of our time going after every lie that the administration henchmen make to the Congress of the United States. Pelosi called Barr "a sad disappointment to our country," but she did note that he has voluntarily agreed to testify at a House hearing next month. Democrats have been out to get Barr for months, first disputing his summary of the Mueller report before it was published, and then opposing his appointment of U.S. Attorney John Durham to look into the origins of the Russia investigation and potential "spying' on the Trump campaign. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats are demanding that the Justice Department inspector general investigate Barr's apparent intervention in Stone's sentencing recommendation.
