Pelosi dismissed Barr’s response and brought up a “stormtroopers” comparison Rudy Giuliani drew two years ago.

“I said they acted like stormtroopers and they did,” Pelosi said. “Peaceful protest is who we are and what we do. And do some other people come along and try to disrupt? Yes. But you don’t send in people acting like stormtroopers into the scene and evoking even more unease and unrest.”

Pelosi brought up the clearing of protesters in Lafayette Square before saying of Barr, “He was like a blob, he was like — just a henchman for the President of the United States.”
