Asked what she makes of those statements, Pelosi said it's not unusual for Trump to lie, though she did not use that word.
"That the president does not speak truth, that should not be news to anyone," she said. "Actually, when the president speaks you should turn it upside down."
She noted that far from exonerating Trump, "Robert Mueller said, 'If I thought if we could say that the president had not committed a crime we would have done so.' "
Pelosi said she believes Mueller is acting within the parameters he has to, given the Justice Department's policy not to indict a sitting president.
"It's clear that the president committed an indictable offense which the Justice Department is shielding him from," she said.
Pelosi blamed Attorney General Bill Barr.
"How can somebody at the Justice Department say that the president is above the law and at the same time be a shield for the president of the United States — to make ... a presentation of the Mueller Report which was inaccurate and a misrepresentation? And to lie to Congress about it, which the attorney general did," Pelosi said.
