Wednesday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin tore apart the idea that Attorney General William Barr somehow misled the American people with his four-page summary of the Mueller report.

Democrats claimed that Barr misled the American people on the contents of the Mueller report at a Wednesday hearing of the Senate Judiciary committee, which Levin called “absolutely, utterly pointless.”

“All the Democrats kept trying to do is tell the attorney general of the United States that they felt he misled the American people with a four-page letter,” Levin summarized.

During Tuesday’s hearing, Barr faced intense questioning and harsh remarks from committee Democrats. For example, Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, even accused him of lying to Congress before she was reprimanded by Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

“Not only is it a lie, but it is truly bizarre,” Levin said of the idea.

Levin explained that despite all the attacks on Barr’s handling of the situation, the final report is public. Barr released it to the American people even though he wasn’t statutorily required to do so. And the vast majority of the information it contains was not redacted. Literally anyone can go read it for themselves.

“Who’s hiding what from whom?” Levin asked.
