Those who claim Barr didn't lie under oath about the Mueller letter because he credibly said he didn't know what Mueller's *staff* believed when Crist asked about them should remember that Barr also said under oath that he thought Mueller's letter had been written by staff. Oops!
1/ More importantly, even after everyone in America had seen the Mueller letter, and seen that it said Mueller's problem was with *Barr's letter*—not with media coverage of the letter—Barr lied to Congress under oath about what Mueller's basis of concern was. A lie in plain view.
2/ So while I respect Benjamin Wittes, I don't know how *anyone* reads Barr's testimonies without finding lies under oath. I only grazed the surface here. Pelosi wasn't overreacting in saying Barr committed a crime. Dems rolled over when Sessions did so; I'm glad they're not now.
