>>conflict of interest clear companies might entice like to which my conflict event i think the american public has seen quite well that you are biased in the situation you've not been objective. >>california senator kamala harris among the democrats demanding that attorney general william barr resign after special counsel robert mueller criticized barr's actions. the attorney general strongly defended his early characterization of the mueller report and also his conclusion that president trump did not obstruct justice during the russia investigation. >>omar jimenez is on capitol hill with more of the highlights from today's congressional hearing. >>contention on capitol hill as democrats denounce attorney general bill barr is handling the russia investigation you lie to congress minutes before bars testimony, the justice department released a march letter from special counsel robert mueller in it mueller says bar summary of the investigation in conclusion, the president did not obstruct justice quote did not fully capture the context nature and substance of this office's work in conclusions. i decided
6:46 pm
to simply state what the bottom line conclusions were is there a crime or isn't there. a crime. >>was there an underlying crime here now being a democrats pounced if you received a letter from bob mueller few days after your march 24th letter it was clear he had some general genuine concerns about would do it said and done to that point yet his concerns was he wanted more at i'm not trying to capture everything i'm just trying to state the verdict, 16. >>republicans say the focus shouldn't be on bar or the president but on protecting future elections might take away from this report is that we've got a lot of work to do to defend democracy against the russians and other bad actors on capitol hill. a march madness. >>o conditions say and now barr says he will not show up for testimony before the house tomorrow joining us to discuss all of this political analyst and former san francisco supervisor michael yaki do you think barr will actually show can the house compel him to show up what happens. well he's not going to show up
6:47 pm
tomorrow. the house is going to try to get into showbiz had never a couple days to think it over. but i think ultimately he won't go and i think that we're headed toward. >>a contempt of sight, a contempt citation against congress can have all sorts of consequences that police are which hardening attitudes are the democrats and pushing the more towards impeachment. >>so potentially this could one escalate the situation or to set a precedent where other people who are called to testify before congress don't show up either. either way it's not good for the country. >>no i mean this is about running out the clock if you watch the way that barr handle the questions from senator harris senator booker, he start by repeating there as the mclaren by walter that was turned away seconds and by the time it's over their 5 minutes are up so this is a game of delay the trying to hide and they're trying to keep witnesses from appearing. they made it clear that i can give up documents we're headed really toward a toward what you would only call a
6:48 pm
constitutional crisis. i think in a very short order so if other trying to run out the clock we still have for 2 years or so before the next election are they trying to round the clock that long and just avoid. >>any kind of hearings before the next election. >>well the calendar have to look at the supreme court calendar and when they actually will hear things and they're trying to rip what run this out to the october calendar until things happtn until next year which case and nothing look at the site into a way into the election by that time people are going to be distracted by other things they're trying to prevent anything from happening between now and our job and that's what really is going on right now and they're doing a pretty good job of that, but the democrats i believe are going to fit have figured this out and you're going to be seen a lot of contempt citations being issued you're going to be seen subpoenas being throwing out you're going to see i think increasing pressure to start impeachment proceedings because one of the arguments that we made by the trump administration that there's no
6:49 pm
underlying crime or investigation. there's no need for us to show up they need for us compel witnesses come forward, but impeachment brings with it a whole different standard and brings in all the nixon cases and all the nixon case is basically say you have to put you have to cut your up you can compel you are you must provide yuma show up all sorts of things that this president does not want to see happen. >>so michael what is your view on the take away from today's hearing you know most people don't follow all of this the way a lot of us in the news business do you do as a political analyst. >>what is the take away for the average when you say a constitutional crisis i mean that's that's severe enough that means a lot to our democracy. >>yeah, i know, but what was happening today was bar was basically repeating the talking points. no underlying crime. no collusion. he basically said we've done the investigation which is not true. he said we have reached conclusions which is not true. but it's a talking point that he wants to continue to make.
6:50 pm
so when the democrats run fight back against that it just creates noise noise gree a noise is that wants have his voice is background noise, political noise fighting. gridlock those are the things that they believe they can take to the bank and and have a good chance of winning next year. it's when you have though the clarity of something like impeachment which i believe is where people are going to certainly need pretty soon the clarity of impeachment brings a whole different ball game and i left and my gut feeling is that i was not a big fan of impeachment. i didn't think that it was going to be worth it but now given the delay tactics and the be a message even by the trump administration may be the only thing to bring the focus back on the mueller investigation and the or 11 counts of obstruction by the president. >>michael yaki on a windy day we appreciate you stopping by
