Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee approached Barr after the hearing adjourned and chatted with him for about a minute.

wow. I think I can count only a handful of times that the Democrats actually let the attorney general speak today.

That was so embarrassing. Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA) is trying to catch Barr in a gotcha moment, but doesn't even know what DOJ policy she's asking about.

He rightfully laughs.

Did MSNBC producers write all of these question from the Democrats ... they're insane 

  • Jul 28, 2020 3:32 PM est | Cortney O'Brien        

Wowww.

I mean, that Dem Congresswoman pretty much accused Barr of being complicit in murder if he doesn't do what *she* wants him to do re ACA and health care. 

Utterly unhinged.

Rep. Greg Stanton (D-AZ) suggests that Barr is "a fixer at the DOJ."

This hearing is pretty good bolshevik theater. Just sayin'

Jim Jordan asks Nadler: "You brought him here. Why don't you let him speak? Why don't you let him answer the questions?"

That exchange was absurd. ACA has nothing to do with DOJ. These Dems just scream and scream ... this hearing is becoming a worthless exercise. 

Dems refusing the let Barr speak because they know he can easily shred their weak sauce arguments

Barr starts to explain that he has two children who recovered from cancer and that the issue of health care is very important to him, but is cut off by Rep. McBath.
