Attorney General William Barr told a Democratic senator he wouldn't share notes from a call he shared with special counsel Robert Mueller after receiving Mueller's "snitty" letter -- which he assumed was written by a staffer -- about his summary of Mueller's report.
See the exchange:
Barr: [Robert Mueller] was political appointee and he was a political appointee with me at the Department of Justice. I don't -- you know, the letter is a bit snitty and I think it was probably written by one of his staff people.
Blumenthal: Did you make a memorandum of your conversation?
Blumenthal: Did you make a memorandum of your conversation.
Barr: No, I didn't.
Blumenthal: Did anyone, either you or anyone on your staff, memorialize your conversation with Robert Mueller?
Blumenthal: Who did that?
Barr: There were notes taken of the call.
Blumenthal: May we have those notes?
Blumenthal: Why not?
Barr: Why should you have them?
Sen. Lindsey Graham, the committee's chairman, then said they would ask Robert Mueller about what Barr has been saying, and ended the hearing.
