House Judiciary Chair Jerold Nadler threatened Attorney General William Barr with potential legal proceedings Thursday; presiding over a bizarre, Barr-free hearing where lawmakers ate fried chicken at 9AM.
“Nadler, D-N.Y., spoke at what was slated to be a hearing for Barr to testify on his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Barr, who testified for hours on the same topic a day earlier on the Senate side, did not show up amid a disagreement over the terms for his appearance in the House,” reports Fox News.
“The president of the United States wants desperately to prevent Congress from providing any check whatsoever on even his most reckless decisions,” Nadler said Thursday. “The challenge we face is that if we don’t stand up to him together, today, we risk not being able to stand up to any president in the future.”
Rep. Steve Cohen -a fierce critic of the Trump administration- likened Barr to a “chicken” as he dined on KFC, saying “Chicken Barr should have shown up today and answered questions.”
