WATCH: Schiff Accuses Barr of “flat-out lying to the American people” on election intelligence

Sunday, appearing with Dana Bash of CNN, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) accused Attorney General Barr of a “flat out” lie in suggesting China is interfering in the 2020 election more than Russia.

Schiff called the notion China is interfering in the 2020 election more than Russia ” just a plain, false statement by the Attorney General. A flat out false statement.”
He continued “You can tell that Bill Barr is just flat-out lying to the American people, and it’s tragic but it’s as simple as that.”

“It’s just such a disservice to the country that we can’t trust our own attorney general, but apparently Bill Barr is willing to do anything or say anything to help Donald Trump,” the House Intelligence Chairman added.
